How to Submit your Facebook Fan Page for Verification

*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 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. :/

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!

          • Hey @disqus_hZxzj9MjEb:disqus and Muhammad. I just check the link in the article and it’s still taking me to the right place. I’ve included a screenshot of the options you’ll want to check to access the form. Thanks for asking!

          • Thank you Jacob, i guess this has to do with my Facebook account :/

          • But this is weird, Why we’re redirected to another URL And you not, Maybe cause of your Facebook account or your Country, Or Browser.

          • I though that caused your IP, it will change.

          • I live in Brazil and here unfortunately do not have any right of proxy ip al the region that I can check my page?

  6. The link is redirecting to some other page :(
    Not getting these options as shown in the video.

      • 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? :(

        Post a Reply
        • 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 :/

      • 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 :)

  15. 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?
