Verification issue

[ Edited ]
# 1


I have just created a website for my local village hall, and I have submitted the url to Google's search engines. What I would also like to do is to add it in the business section of Google but I am having problems... The image below is what comes up when I type in Denby Dale Pie Hall ( the name of our village hall ) , and I would like it to be featured in the box to the right of the usual listings, BUT it appears as though some other local village district has entered the info about the Pie Hall and the website link in that large box takes you to their website and not the one which I have created. I have a verification code, which I got a few hours ago, and I followed the instructions to take over that box and 'own' it, but there wasn't a box , like there should have been, for me to enter my own verification code.

The web address should be the village hall's new site address   but, as one will see if they go to the search for denby dale pie hall, the website link in that box takes the visitor somewhere else.

I'd appreciate any help on this matter...


Many thanks  ~ andy :-

Hi There,
Newbie here, I'm having issues with verification code, google was suppose to send me a code by mail, and I never received it. I was surprise that they didn't have an option to send via text or email.
