In an effort to clean up their search results for Google My Business, Google is deleting unverified pages.
Many small business owners are finding that they no longer have the online traffic or calls that they used to have. Many of their potential and current customers could not find information about their business. It was like the faucet was turned off.
While it is easy to claim your business yourself after a bit of research on how to do it, small business owners simply keep putting it off, or they received the verifying postcard from Google in the mail and were simply unsure how exactly what needed to happen next.
Google tries to make it as easy as possible for you to claim your business, however most business owners just do not have the time!
