    Anyone here who can do em these days? I'd be very happy to pay a decent sum and provide volume of work.

    It can be done with unverified listings it takes several months before you can claim them via phone

    Have you looked into getting a virtual office? If you go this way, you will be able to use address on your website and citations - and will have access to boardrooms for any meetings.

    Virtual offices are typically hit by Possum update and ghosted.

    That's what happens typically with virtual offices, there is only one way to get listing live but unfortunately it takes months until you can phone verify

    Verification isn't the problem. You can't keep the listings live, waste of time and money.

    Unless you are listing a business with a physical, walk-in premises, then you should remain live unless someone flags you to Google.

    This is why I said, "Unless you are listing a business with a physical, walk-in premises".

    I misread! Yeah, some people can pull it off but it's not an easy task! unless as you stated they actually have a physical location. Getting them live is easy

    Yeah, they just use postings and social to ask people to use their addresses. There is an easier way that actually will get you listed in a commercial environment and hide your address. I don't provide the service (I am whitehat) I do however like to see what blackhatters are doing to help identify new aspects to the Google algorithm. I know of fake listings that have been live for 10 years but honestly if your out to make money, make money just do it right! you won't regret it! :)

    Who gives a shit about the algo if you're whitehat? Isn't the mantra "write great copy and hope for great links?"

    You still have structure, what Google responds to. You can learn a lot about how the system works by seeing what they favor with Blackhat.

    Gaming the system would be using the exploits. Understanding what Google looks for helps rank. Creating good content and getting links helps rank, however, having site structure and design and understanding what Google is looking for help create more accurately targeted SEO. "write great copy and hope for great links" isn't SEO that would be hoping something goes viral or is of such importance you don't need SEO.

    I'd appreciate any help to phone verify an existing unverified GMB. If I find out how to do so, my problem will be resolved. Any ideas / solutions? :)
