How to Request for Google+ Page Verification (Verified Profile Seal)?
Verified pages or profiles (verified seal on profiles) are important part of google+ that helps identify authenticity of any google+ page or profile.
With the recent introduction of Google+ Vanity URL or Custom URL which at the moment only available to some verified pages or profile, makes us wonder how to request for a page verification?
The good news is they have published a web based process for page verification. A simple request form (refer image) for pages that represent a commercial entity, organization, brand or product.
The bad news is, there is no way to submit verification request for individual or personal profiles. As far as we know it’s a manual process by Google+ team to contact popular profile owners based on their active role in G+ and followers count.

I want my profile verification
I requested to be verified through my Google+ pages where it said Verify Your Business, our company has 12 locations that I tried to verify. Google said that I needed to have a postcard sent with a pin code to verify and now my locations are getting their pins but the option for me to enter the pin code has disappeared. What am I supposed to do now???
