You may have noticed that on Google Places, Yahoo Local and Bing that some listings have the special status of Owner or Merchant Verified. This means the listing has been reviewed and claimed by the business owner or by an authorized representative. Claimed listings have a special status with directories and search engines; they are treated as high-value listings that are not merged with information from other sources and are given priority in search results. With Claimed Profiles, we will claim your listings on Google, Yahoo, and Bing, securing your presence at these crucial anchor points for internet search traffic. We make sure your basic listing information is accurate and upload additional profile details including logos, photos, business hours, payment information and more.

This is a great way to make your business stand out in local search results even without a website! Below is an example of owner verified claimed profile on Google Places.
