Claiming my blog with Google Webmasters Tools

  1. Hi all,
    I'm trying to claim my blog with Google Webmasters Tools. It seems there are 3 different ways to do that. The first one is uploading a file into the root directory of the website. I'm afraid this is not possible, or at least I haven't found the way to do that.
    The second way is adding an HTML code in the main page, but I'm afraid I'm not able to modify the HTML code of the pages.
    For the third way it's necessary to modify some DNS registries.

    Is there a way to verify my blog using one of the 3 options? Or is it just not possible?

    Thanks a lot in advance for your support!

    The blog I need help with is pericvlvm.wordpress.com.

  2. Dashboard >> Tools

    See the section on Web Tools

    The verification options you refer to are at odds with the special one that WordPress.com has set up with the big three search engines for us free hosted wordpress.com bloggers. You will find the instructions here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/webmaster-tools/
    Best wishes with your blog. :)

  4. Thanks a lot, both of you, for your assistance!
    I never thought it would be so easy :)

    Have a nice day!
    -Alex

  5. Do I have to purchase the ability to change my CSS file to do this?

  6. No, that has nothing to do with this. Any blogger at WP.com can do this for free.
