Finding Verified Owner Data With Outscraper Google Maps Places API

Do you want to find out if a business listed in Google Maps has a verified owner? And, if so, do you also need to know the Google user ID of that owner? But possibly you are having difficulty obtaining information about the verification of businesses because the official Google Places API does not provide this feature yet. Don’t worry, we have a solution for you! Outscraper’s Google Maps Places API allows you to access the “verified owner” data which indicates if the place was claimed. Check the API docs to understand more about Outscraper as an alternative to Google’s official API.

Sample API Responses

We will use the Outscraper Google Maps Places API to request information for two different places. For these examples, we have chosen two cafes. One of the cafes has a verified owner, while the other does not. We will compare the results and data returned by the API for both.
