Hi Umer, how are things?

The verification process helps ensure that your business information is accurate and that only you, the business owner or manager, has access to it.

Also, Once you’ve verified your business information, updates you make to your local business—such as contact details, description, photos, business hours—are eligible to show up on Google Maps and other Google properties.

You can check those information and a lot more here:

Hope this helps.

Hello Connie,
The process of creation of a business listing through the My Business dashboard ends with the step where a verification is sent by postcard.
It is possible also to claim and verify existing unverified listings created by Google from third-party sources.
Please, take a look at the Get Verified section of the My Business help center.

Another great reason to claim and verify your business page is that the Owner account will receive notifications whenever a customer leaves you a review. This is especially useful if someone leaves a negative review that needs to be responded to sooner than later.

@Mansoor S - I'm not sure I follow you. what do you mean by "other able to make the changes and make it live?" 

 

Who is "other"? and what "changes" are you referring to?

 

Thanks

Hi Colan,

 

We have verified google business listing for our business which is real estate. But some brokers or competitors keeps on changing it's information such as phone number, images, address etc. 

 

So If the account is owned by us (Verified) will other able to make the changes and make it live?
