Do you guys know if there is a way to discover if a business is already verified on GMB ?

I mean like checking some URL or it is possible just observing details on profile ?
- I am used to look if there are photos from the owner, if there are reviews answered by the owner or question answers by the owner also but I don't think it is too effective.

Is it a good idea to try to request the ownership and see if there is some email associated ?

Thank you

FP

If you look at the profile on Google Maps and see a "own this business" label/link then it's likely unclaimed. But this method of determining whether or not a listing is claimed is not super consistent so it's more of a best guess.

And yes I see no issues with going to claim a listing to see if it shows you an email hint which would mean that it's already claimed.

I can see unverified GMBs if I use a pc and smartphone and not I am logged in to google.

Do you see it too?
