Suddenly, all my verification statuses have reverted to Pending and attempting to reverify just results in a message that "We are experiencing a large number of requests for verification. We'll process your verification request as soon as possible. Check back later for the status of the request." This recently happened to others, and it eventually fixed itself. I assume it will again. But it begs the question...Does this cause any other kind of problems or ranking issues?
