Distinguishing a verified listing from a non verified listing.

Hello we have a location GMB location with the id: 

 

accounts/117743989122960078854/locations/6576896019658539500 

 

 the locationState object reads as follows: 

"locationState": {
    "canUpdate": true,
    "canDelete": true,
    "isDisconnected": true
  }

At the same time this location has a valid mapsUrl too:

"metadata": {
    "mapsUrl": "https://maps.google.com/maps?cid=11350056411390103500"
  }

Is there a way to identify if this is a verified location or not since the isVerified key is not present in the locationState object. 

 

Thanks!

Hi there... your listing is not claimed because there is an option to 'claim this business' on the listing. You can see it under the phone number.

Hi @Ananth M,

 

The isVerified field of LocationState indicates whether the location is verified. The listing you mentioned in your post is neither verified nor in the verification process.

 

I suggest you verify your local business listing on Google via the Google My Business User Interface to manage your business information across Google, including Search and Maps. You need to create or claim a Google My Business listing before you can start the verification process.

 

Thanks,
