Google business profile ID - Where to find it?
Google is one of the largest and most recognizable giants in technology. The company offers many services, including an Internet search engine, communication services, office tools, and free business profiles for companies that display Google and Google Maps.
Each business profile carries its own unique business profile ID, which allows, for example, the Google support department to quickly find relevant Google business profiles and unhide them, for example. In this article, we'll show you how and where to find your company's Google business profile ID.
Go to your Google business profile
At the very beginning, you need to search for your business profile (Google My Business), which you can access and manage in Google Maps and Google search. To do this, either type your exact business name into Google search or "my business."

Open the advanced settings
In the next window, you need to click "advanced settings."
Copy the business profile ID
This is the last step, where you just need to copy the code that identifies your Google listing that displays in Google Maps and Google search results.
What do you need the business account ID for?
Usually, it is mainly needed by a department at Google and not by you. Your goal is just to provide them with the code if they ask for it because they want to make sure that you are talking about the same company and that you have access to it, from which having access to this ID also follows.
The most common case where people need an account ID is that their business profile has been suspended by Google, and providing the ID is essential in the process of hanging up and recovering the company's business profile on Google.
Now you know how to find your Google business profile ID, which will help you to be able to change your company details on your business listing again so that potential customers can find you.
Remember not to share this code with anyone except the department at Google. If it falls into the wrong hands, someone using it may try to take over your company profile on Google. Good luck!
