So I recently have started documenting the various methods for verifying citations that many of us use helping Google listings. I have posted what I have so far on my blog and I am sharing that here. I also have re-registered here under my real name instead of using the screen name that I used previously. I hope this helps others and look forward to discussing this subject more.
I am documenting the methods used by some common valuable listings and citations. While some verification must be done by mail, completed them is very straightforward. Simply wait 1-2 weeks for the mail to arrive and enter the code online. Many times the verification can be done by phone, which is a big time saver. When done by phone, there are two methods that typically are used.
Sites that use method 1. are as follows:
- The first phone verification is probably the most common and is used by Google. This method starts with an initiation on the computer, results in a phone call that provides a verification code to the person listening to the call and then the code must be entered on the computer.
- The second phone verification is less common and is used by YP.com which is owned by AT&T. This method starts with an initiation on the computer, results in a verification code being displayed on the computer and then is followed by a phone call that requires the code to be entered on the telephone keypad.
Sites that use method 2. are as follows:
