    Wondering if anyone has any luck verifying physical addresses for google places listings.

    I did this once a few years ago by filling out a post office change of address form at an address that was currently vacant, but I'm pretty sure that doesn't work any more.

    A few other ideas I had:

    * Find someone on Craigslist who I can pay to forward mail to me for a month or so.
    - This is possible, but would probably be difficult. Also, I think commercial addresses are better for google place and it may be more difficult to find someone at a commercial address who is willing to do this

    * Rent a "virtual office" for a month or so
    - This would be fairly easy, but should cost $50-$100. My biggest concern with this is not the price but the fact that its possible that google is looking for this kind of thing.


    Is there a method that is known to work in the current environment?

    Thanks!
