Details: “ I got verified in google but my business is still in pending.”
Some listings may need to be reviewed manually by Google and, due to covid-19 limited services, it may take a while for it to be reviewed by Google.
Normally, this happens because:
- Your business category is considered prone to spam (e.g. locksmith, Garage Doors businesses) or an issue for public safety (e.g. Drug Rehabilitation centers)
- Your business name is suspicious with keyword stuffing (e.g. business name with the category and/or city name)
- Your business address is suspicious
- Your business type is normally a service area business and you didn’t hide your address or normally operates from a physical location and you hid the address
