Justin Mosebach an Internet Marketing professional with YDOP – Internet Marketing just sent in the very helpful tip for Apple’ Maps Connect:
Interestingly, if the phone call with the code doesn’t work the first time, you have to wait 1 minute until you re-try it. If that next try doesn’t work, you have to wait 5 minutes until the next try (and then 25 minutes after that).
However, I discovered a trick that if you log out and log back in, the wait time goes away and you can immediately try again.
After trying around 9am (with no success), I was able to claim our listing a few minutes ago. You just have to wait like 5-10 minutes or more for the call to come through with the verification code. I assume it’s slow because of everyone and their uncle trying to do this at the same time.
I was not given any type of option to verify the listing by an email address with the same domain as the business (as the Search Engine Land article alluded to).Apple Maps Connect Pro Tip by Mike Blumenthal
