I have a website based in AZ and it’s a sole proprietorship. I have tried to query Google as to how I can be verified under their new rules since August of 2023. My adwords account was suspended and it was impossible to fix the problem. Now, some 6 months later, my site traffic is negligible and web sales near zero. I had to lay off my manager. My submission for verification was not answered and Google has a message on the webpage for verification that “we’re experiencing delays in verification reviews” and “don’t submit your application more than once.” In the meantime my website is dead in the water. Google evidently does have a total monopoly on search engine websites, and can dictate who stays in business.
