I am a real Noob... but Google & FTP no go ????

  1. I have been trying to link Google search to the Blog, requires me to upload XML files to the Sites directory, is this right... evidently cant upload anything into wordpress.com blogs.

    how else do we fix this ???

    Chris PS many thanks for your help

    The blog I need help with is farcry3.me.

  2. evidently cant upload anything into wordpress.com blogs.

    Correct. This is for security reasons on a multi-user platform.

    Please read this comparison so you are aware of all the differences between free hosted WordPress.com blogs and WordPress.org installs http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  4. Hi Guys,

    I have read the notes re: uploads etc. and I understand the concerns, that said how do we link to Google search etc. when they (Google) require these files in the main directory etc.

    Am I missing something.

    If not, can you please advise best way to get to search engines.

    Many thanks

    Chris

  7. Hi timethief,

    All these questions must take up your time and I apologise in advance for stealing that precious commodity.

    I have actually received the "meta tag from Google" so presumably it is a simple case of installing the tag into the meta area. So I will have a go and let you know if it woks, fingers crossed

  8. No it's not simple at all. We cannot access metadata on our free hosted WordPress.com blogs and insert anything. This is the only method of blog verification we can use for free hosted WordPress.com blogs. http://en.support.wordpress.com/webmaster-tools/

  9. Hi again, sorry

    Have rec'd the following

  11. Hi timethief,

    I can understand a loss of time.

    I have successfully verified the site with Google & Bing

    The problem was the Boxes where the info supplied was supposed to be "pasted" did not show up. It was only by luck the mouse "happened to highlight the box as it past over it. Lucky

    Many thanks for your help

    Chris
