I was tinkering with our Go Left Marketing Facebook page settings trying to find the list of those who like the page (Facebook loves to move this section around!!) when I found something interesting in the dashboard. This discovery led me to write this short blog post about what I found and how it can benefit your Facebook business page.
Learn How to Quickly Verify Your Facebook Business Page
I’ve never seen this option within our page’s settings before (thanks for the heads up, FB!). It said our page, which is over 3 years old, was not verified. Obviously, I clicked on it and proceeded to follow the simple 2-step process. All you enter your phone number, a robot calls you with a verification code and voila, you’re verified. Facebook says Verified Pages show up higher in search results. Since it slipped under my radar, and I’m a social media marketer, I can only imagine how many other business pages aren’t verified.
Here are a couple screenshots on how to verify your Facebook page.
Go to your page. Click Settings in the top right corner.
Then click General in the left side where all of your page options are. Then click Page Verification. Enter your phone number. Once you receive the call, enter the verification code.
Pages and profiles have been verified by Facebook to let people know that they’re authentic. If you see a blue badge on a Page or profile, it means that Facebook confirmed that this is the authentic Page or profile for this public figure, media company or brand. If you see a gray badge on a Page, it means that Facebook confirmed that this is an authentic Page for this business or organization. If your page is successfully verified you will receive a badge similar to the image below.
