We are frustrated with Google Account Verifications!


Can you help us? Can someone at +Google+  helps us?

Issue = Multi Account Authentication

Many agencies and consultants that service single to multi location businesses are continuing to run into a multi authentication Google account roadblock.


When do you see this issue?
When creating new  #gmail   / #googleaccounts we are prompted to verify the account via phone call or text message.
When claiming new #googlemybusiness  pages (not verifying) we are prompted to re-verify the Google Account


This roadblock is clearly auto generated based on a Google account algorithm at both the gmail and G Local / GMB level and has persisted for well over a year. And the issue is more prevalent today than ever before.


Solutions we have used that either no long work or are not scaleable.
Verify via desk, cell or call forwarding numbers (ex. Google Voice) via text and call


This presents digital marketers with an ongoing issue that has no scalable solutions.


Can someone @google or in our communities please help either provide us with a current solution that is scaleable or start the right conversations with the right people to effect a change to this issue?

Google+ trend is great to see.
 
Social Login Trends Q3 2014

Despite reports of privacy concerns and young people abandoning the network, Facebook’s value to consumers as a social login provider shows no signs of declining. Facebook increased its lead over Google during the past quarter, marking its second consecutive quarter of growth. Yahoo slipped to its lowest share ever, with Twitter picking up momentum in third place.

Google+ made a valiant charge to dethrone Facebook but the momentum is now gone and Facebook is once again pulling away. Yahoo on the other hand is now in nowheresville with Twitter now the third largest platform. 

#social   #signin  
This quarter’s highlights: Facebook’s market share increased 2%, marking the second consecutive quarter of growth. Google remains a strong #2, but after closing within five percentage points of Facebook just two quarters ago, Facebook has restored a double digit advantage in preference.  Its share dropped by 3%, representing a second consecutive quarter of decline. Twitter recorded... Read more »

I love this. Living in a world inspired by consumerism it is hard to respect and realize what is really important in life. For me: the outdoors, running, skiing, things that require very few things.

+Brielle Bullard I thank you for your response, however do not believe it is the solution. I have worked with GMB support multiple times regarding this issue with zero success. Is there someone else or another channel of contact that will get me in touch with the right person to get the right solution? Thank you for your help. Have a great weekend.

I ran up South Sister last weekend. The descent was new to me, hazardous and challenging.

Stoked to be the fifth reviewer of this rad destination spot near Bend in the Central Oregon Cascades. Great food, beer, activities, views and trails. What more do you need for a vacation or in my case a staycation :)

Almost immediately after ordering a drink and dessert the restaurant manager informed us that we were going to have to move to a table inside. We had already been seated outside with a group of friends for a nice summer concert and the dissatisfying pastini policy / manager Kathy spoiled our experience.
