To receive or retain the Google Verified business & trusted service badge, subscribers must meet the eligibility criteria below.

Eligibility Criteria for The Google Verified Business & Trusted Service Badge

To be eligible to receive the Google Verified Business badge on your website and Google Business Profile Products, your account must be actively subscribed to Gogleer Trusted and meet the following criteria:

  1. Create a Google My Business profile. This is the first step to getting verified by Google.

You can do this here - https://www.google.com/business/
