A few questions...
How do I know when my listing is live (I am still pending verification)?
Is there a "preview" mode where I can what the listing looks like (ie. pending it going live, or when I'm making updates..)?
Hi @Jim O,
The listing should be inserted in the Local database and found on maps typically within minutes of entering the verification code.
You can check by searching on Maps for the business name and address.
You should also see links on your GMB dashboard to the listing on Maps and Web Search when you are in Edit mode.
