Verify Ownership

Google Business Profile is a free tool that you can use to promote your business on Google Search and Maps.

In order to activate your profile, you will need to complete the verification process. This will confirm that you are the rightful owner of the business.

For most businesses, you can verify ownership over the phone, via SMS, or by requesting and receiving a postcard to your physical location. Learn more about how you can verify your Google Business Profile here.
