Have you been limited to the verification options provided? For the past oh… 6 months? Whenever I create a Google listing for a client I’ve only been offered verification via phone/text. Many of my clients have automated lines that don’t go directly to a person and cannot receive texts.

I’m thinking Google is limiting my options as I work with an agency and my clients aren’t located near me. Any input is appreciated as I’m going a bit insane! Thank you!

What hurts even more is that we own many of the domains and have them in GSC and still won’t get auto verified.

the rules have changed for everyone, more prompts for email, calls and video verification which can all cause problems, so much so that legit new companies are sometimes struggling to get GMB verification, a re-seller I use just today paused their GMB verification service... it's deffo not just you

The latest one for me will only let me verify it thru an email address- the crazy part is that the email has to be “email@businessname.com”.

Which this business doesn’t have their own email handle so I’m unable to verify it unless I buy the business email.

you have to play around with the categories and names during the initial verification process to see which trigger what and how.. and the highly spammed categories or ones in LSA will usually trigger differently than regular store fronts..
