Google Places Confirmation Postcard
Posted By: admin on May 31, 2011 at 4:31 pm
Hello from GoogleThat's the first line of the postcard that Google sends out when you first take ownership of your Google Places listing. Google wants to make sure that an authorized representative of your business is verifying your information. If you're doing your own Google Places Verification, then that's someone in your office. If we're doing it for you, then it's someone in our office. Either way, Google wants to make sure they're dealing with the right people.
So They Send Me A Postcard?Kind of. It's a card, yes. It's about five and a half inches wide and eight and a half inches long, and it's folded half to fit into an envelope that's about postcard size, so they call it a postcard. The card has a Personal Identification Number (PIN) printed at the bottom. You enter that PIN on the Google Places site where you first went to verify your listing, and that convinces Google that someone at the listing address has claimed that the listing information is correct. Simple and effective.
What Do They Look Like?The card itself looks like this:
And the envelope looks like this:
Watch Your Mail!If you're in the process of verifying your Google Places listing, please watch your mail for this card. Whether we're doing it for you or you're doing it yourself, the process can't be completed without the PIN on that card.
