google verification

  1. I need to add a meta tag to my sites homepage in order to be verified with google so I can remove a mistake someone made with my blog. How can I do this????? Thank you in advance!

  2. We bloggers cannot access metadata files on free hosted WordPress.com blogs and include metatags but that doesn't matter as Google doesn't use them.This is a multiuser blogging platform. All blogs wearing the same theme use the same template. Only Staff can access those files and edit as every edit they make affects all blogs wearing the same theme.

    We can all practice on page SEO and off page SEO. Search engine spiders look for keywords in content. Moreover Google does not use the keywords meta tag in web ranking - Monday, September 21, 2009

    Note that the way we verify blog ownership with the major search engines is by this process for free hosted WordPress.com blogs. http://en.support.wordpress.com/webmaster-tools/

  3. Howdy,

    You can add Google's verification code via Tools -> Available Tools in your blog's dashboard. Here's a direct link to that page:
