First time google business setup

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

My business is:

1) Red Hills Oral and Facial Surgery

2) 2648 Centennial Place, Tallahassee, FL, 32308

3) 850.523.3000


I completed the mail verification of the business.  I have had the phrase "Edits to the page are pending. Edits may be reviewed for quality before publishing." for several days now.  I was under the impression that this would typically be resolved in several days.


Are there additional steps that I need to complete?


Thank you for the assistance in advance,

Russell Walther

Hello @Russell_W,

Unfortunately verifying a business for Google My Business can be a long process when doing so by mail. I would recommend reaching out to a GYBO partner (Get Your Business Online). They can submit an expedited request to verify your business in 5 days vs. 6-8 weeks. Link:

Let me know if that helps!

I talked with a customer service rep on the phone. I had verified via snail mail without a problem. The listing was being blocked by the fact that I had not put www. in front of my website name!

Thanks for the fast reply!
