Google is now showing an “Own This Business? Claim it Now” message on many Google Business Listings. Spotted by Elizabeth Linder of Kick Point and shared on Twitter, Krystal Taing – a GMB Gold Product Expert – confirmed that it is a new feature that allows business owners to get management of their page back if they’ve misplaced their credentials.
For anyone beginning to see this on your listings, it is a new #GMB feature. It does not mean your listing is unclaimed but is intended as an easier path to begin the claiming process for users that may have mislocated their account info. https://t.co/eyYxjfEAOw

This doesn’t mean the listing is “unclaimed” – it’s just offering those that should have access but don’t, a way to regain their access to their business listing.
