In an ostensible change in the policies of Local Business Center Google is now saying that most of the uploads were “unverified”.

A lot of altercation and discussion are going on at various forums:

Google's Employee and Maps Guide Brianna offered this explanation:

Hi all,

'Listings that have been submitted and verified (by phone, sms or mail) through the LBC “add listing” process won’t have the unverified label. Listings that have been submitted through the bulk upload process may have the Unverified Listing label, depending on what other data we have about the business.

While we realize this recent change may cause an inconvenience for you, we recommend that you manually verify your listings.'

Earlier, these bulk uploaded listings were given the term 'verified.' It seems that it is an anti-spam measure by Google.
