Hi,

 

'Claim this business' option not available on google search result. Only 'Suggest an edit' is available. I would like to know the reason for this. Please help.

Hi @Lauren D,

 

Could you please mention the complete name, address of the listing that you are referring to?

Hey @Lauren D,

 

Like Time Lord mentioned please add the name and address so we can investigate further.

 

Additionally it's almost definitely because someone else has already claimed and verified the business. Check around and see if any other stakeholders already claimed the listing.

 

If my response was helpful please mark my answer as 'Best Answer' Thanks!

Hi @Dan F,

 

Just to add, it may also be that the listing is not of a category that can be claimed, like certain building categories for example.

 

Or, it may be that the listing is in a country that is not supported by Google My Business: Google My Business Help -> Supported regions.

 

To know for sure, we'd need to know the complete name, address of the business listing being referred to, however.

 

Thank you.
