Discover How To Verify Your Facebook Business Page
On 6th October 2015, Facebook started rolling out verified badges (similar to Google My Business) for local businesses. As with Google My Business, a small tick symbol appears to the right of the business name and it will help customers, potential customers and users see that the Facebook business page is the “real” business. Importantly, as well as getting more potential “Likes” verifing your FB business page will also result in getting higher rankings in the search engines.
How To Verify Your Facebook Business Page
It is really easy to verify your business page in Facebook, just follow these easy steps below:
- Log in to your Facebook Business Page
