Just saw something a tiny bit odd. Thoughts???

Has reviews PLUS Social (Follow button, posts, circles). So I would normally think this is a merged page.

But there is no verification check mark. When you manually merge a G+ page it will show the verified check mark.

Do you suppose this one does not show a check mark because it's one that was auto-upgraded by Google, therefore did not go through the 2nd verification required when you do a manual G+ page merge?

It also has no photo tab even though there are photos? So maybe page is just borked???

What do you think or am I missing something or looking at this wrong?
Very interesting Linda.

I haven't seen this before. I have seen many auto-upgraded pages that do have the verified check-mark.

I'm thinking this is something new, or it's borked, or....

maybe that's how an auto-upgraded page behaves when it's in an account that hasn't been upgraded to G+...?

I'll try to find more examples.
Whew, thanks Colan. Glad I'm not the only one that thought it was odd.

It's just an example I saw that an SEO posted as one of his success stories. So I was simply checking for any new tricks or violations. Then noticed the oddities.
