How to Submit your Facebook Fan Page for Verification

*UPDATE  08/12/14

While I still have not found the new business submission form, if you are a personality or celeb, use this form to request verification. (note, you must be signed out of Facebook to access the link)

*UPDATE 06/24/14* No joke, I think this post was sending so much traffic to Facebook’s verification form that they moved/removed the page. :/

Doh…

Anyway, I encourage you to SUBSCRIBE to my blog so I can send you an updated method when I find it. I just didn’t want to leave new visitors and my readers in the dark!

-Original Post-

Facebook page verification is highly sought after for most brands and celebrities. Although Facebook states there is no way to request a page for verification, there is a work around that I’ve found and of course I couldn’t wait to share it with my readers!!

This week’s #SocialMediaMinute will teach you how to submit your Facebook Fan Page for Verification.

PS: I was very surprised by the amount of other ridiculous “tutorials” that I found when researching this topic. Some dealt with copy and pasting code, downloading some sketch software, and the top result on YouTube for this search is a video of some dude saying you can’t verify your page….wonderful!

For that reason please make sure to share this article as it’s the only legitimate way I’ve found, oh, and it works! *NOTE* I do not have the ability to verify your Page for you and will not respond to emails with that request. Sorry!

Facebook Fanpage Verification Request

What are Verified Pages?

Verified Pages will have a badge beside the name of the Page that indicates the Page is the authentic voice of the business or individual. This makes it a whole lot easier for people to find and engage with the businesses and brands they’re looking for on Facebook.

Also, verified pages receive a huge boost in organic reach!

Keep in mind, Facebook Fan Pages that are verified belong to only a small group of prominent public figures (celebrities, journalists, government officials, popular brands and businesses) with large audiences and Facebook is proactively verifying authentic Pages and Profiles that are at the greatest risk of impersonation.

*UPDATE  08/12/14* While I still have not found the new business submission form, if you are a personality or celeb, use this form to request verification. (note, you must be signed out of Facebook to access the link)

Disclaimer (don’t waste your/FB’s time)

Please use common sense when submitting your Facebook Fan Page for Verification using the form.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Is your Facebook page the official presence of a popular brand or celeb?
  • Is your Facebook page currently or has a high chance of being impersonated?
  • Does your Facebook page have a large audience? (i.e. 20k+ Fans)
  • Is the page in question running Facebook ads? (may not be necessary but I believe it provides extra leverage if you are)

What to Include in your Verification Form Submission

It’s important to include the right information when submitting your Facebook page to be verified. This will reduce the unnecessary back and forth that may occur between you and Facebook support. Including relevant information will also decrease the likelihood of your request being dismissed (assume they receive these requests all the time.)

Here’s what I included that helped get my submissions pushed through (and ultimately verified) to Facebook’s Pages team:

  • URL of the Fan Page I wanted to verify
  • Links to the Brand’s official website
  • Links to 2-3 impersonating fan pages
  • A good reason WHY the page should be verified (If you can’t answer this, it’s probably best you don’t submit a request)

If your Request is Denied:

If your profile or Page isn’t verified, there are other ways to help your followers or the people that like your Page know that your identity is authentic.

For example, you can:

  • Link to your Facebook profile or Page from your official website
  • Complete the About section of your profile or Page to provide more information

Takeaway

I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised by the response I received from Facebook’s Global Marketing Solutions team. After I had the pages verified I was sent a follow up questioner of their level of service and my experience working with their support. I suggest for good karma to leave them feedback whatever it may be.

Verified Facebook pages receive numerous benefits outside of the blue check mark. They rank higher in search, have increased organic reach and are allowed to add other special features to their pages like video trailers.

Good luck and don’t forget to spread the word!

  • Menti

    Well, i guess they changed the link because now it says
    “Tell us about your feedback on Ads support”
    and not “Facebook Advertising: Help & Tips”

    • MuhammadJ

      That’s Right, I do not why, Maybe it’s available only for US Users!

      • Menti

        I live in the US and it doesn’t work here. Maybe they changed the link.

        • MuhammadJ

          Oh, Yeah maybe, I’m waiting for Jacob comment.

          • https://plus.google.com/+PuiChan Pui Chan

            I though that caused your IP, it will change.

      Ramneek, could you tell me where you’re trying to access the URL from?

      • Ramneek Sidhu

        hey i now used usa socks and it works fine :)
        but everytime i submit a page for verification i get a reply

        “Hi Ramneek,
        I do understand your interest and desire to have your Page verified. Facebook automatically verifies certain accounts to help people find authentic profiles and Pages. We’re not currently able to accept requests for verified profiles or Pages from the public.

        For this reason we can not fulfill your request for Page verification at this time.”

        Can you please help me with this? :(

        • http://www.jacobcurtis.co/ Jacob Curtis

          Hey Ramneek, was this the email you received back from the Global Marketing Team? In this case your page probably didn’t fit the requirements for verification. Sorry but verifying your page is not something I have the power to do :/

        • Nick

      Hey, @100fm6:disqus, it’s right under the video in the article. Thanks for stopping by!

      • 100fm6

        I think there is misunderstanding, I am asking about the link to the FB page you have successfully verified, not the contact link to verify.
        Thanks :)

        • http://www.jacobcurtis.co/ Jacob Curtis

          @100fm6:disqus , I chose not to show the pages I had verified for client privacy. :)

    Their team replied with that they currently do not accept requests for verification. My page has over 3 million fans and it represents a very popular website in the region. We run ads frequently. And we’ve been getting impersonated for the past 3 years! (And it attached 3 pages impersonating us). Any advice on what to do?

    HEY FIRENDS I THINK JACOB HAS FORGOTTEN TO TELL ONE THING FOR WHICH YOU ARE FACING PROBLEMS ALL AROUND THE WORLD THAT “it doesn’t work” BUT ” THE SIMPLE THIS IS TO DO THAT OPEN UR FANPAGE ACCOUNT AND THEN GO ON THE LINK THAT “JACOB CURTIS” HAS TOLD YOU THEN THE PAGE WILL APPEAR IN UR PC

    • samer

      u cant open it with that way facebook will say to u switch ur account to open this page

      • Rohit S Flinton

        But if you complete the full process of Jacob then too facebook message me that”we will automatically verifies fanpage and don’t think that after sending message to us your fanpage will be verified”

        • MuhammadJ
