Your Edit Could Not Be Verified, So It Won't Be Published

I am the director of communications for Orland School District 135, and we have been dealing with this same issue for nearly 3 years.  The phone number for 50% of our schools is incorrect on Google.  I am not sure where this information is being sourced from, but it is incorrect and causing a lot of issues with our community, who largely relies on Google for correct information.  I use my District-issued Google account to submit the changes, however, every single time, it tells me it cannot be verified so it won't be published.  I have worked with our District tech team as well, and nothing seems to point us to a solution.  Is there a solution to this that someone can share with me?

Hi @jen o, all the listings that you linked to are currently unclaimed. To update the business information you should first claim and verify each listing in GMB. Instructions for that are here. 


Depending on how many locations you need to verify you might want to do a bulk verification.  Once you claim and verify the listings you should have no issues updating the incorrect phone numbers in GMB.


In the meantime if you can provide me with a few specific examples as well as the incorrect and correct phone number I will see if I can submit and edit.
