Site Verification in Google Webmaster Tools
Verify your site’s ownership with one of the 4 methods before using Google Webmaster Tools:
- HTML File Verification: Upload a given file to your web server’s root directory.
- Meta Tag Verification: Add a given META tag to your site’s homepage.
- DNS Record Verification: Verify ownership of an entire domain including all sub-domains of that site at once.
- Google Analytics Asynchronous Tracking Code Verification: Link your Google Webmaster Tools account to Google Analytics.
Go through the list of site verification errors if you are unable to verify your site.
Add Sites to Google Webmaster Tools
Each Google Webmaster Tools account allows you to add up to 1000 websites, including sites with subdomains and/or subfolders. For example:
Verification for Blogger Blogs and Google Sites
- To verify a blogger blog automatically, use the same Google Account for both your blogger blog and Google Webmaster Tools. If you have an older blogger blog, verify with the META tag verification method.
- To verify a Google Site, use the META tag verification method.
Google Webmaster Tools for Multiple Users
In the past when more than one user need to access your Google Webmaster Tools account for a site, you could:
- Allow one Google Account to be shared by all site owners.
- Have each site owner verify the site separately (through META tag or HTML file verification method).
Now through the “Manage Verification Page”, you can add verified users to your Google Webmaster Tools account.
You can remove an owner from your Google Webmaster Tools account by unverifying his access at any time.
