Hi. I've done everything correctly to get my site verified with Google, but when I first log in there, I'm still confronted at the first with a page which tells me that I don't have access to my site, and that I need either to ask a site owner to add me as a user or to verify my site. I'm not using gmail.com as my e-mail service that I sign into Google with, but I'm doubtful that that's the problem. On my user page on WordPress.com, my user name for WordPress is listed, and across from it is my e-mail address, under the heading "e-mail address." This is the same e-mail address I sign into Google with. Is this the problem? Do I also need to add my email address or a part of it to the user list on WordPress.com separately in order to get acknowledged by Google, or is this not the problem? I've waited for Google to say that my site is verified, because someone here told me that it took them a few days, and I've written on Google's support forum, but they just keep telling me to click verify and that it should work. If I'm not the owner of my site, who is? Is WordPress.com technically the owner of my site, or something? I know one thing: Google's search engine covered my site a lot better before I ever started trying to do SEO or verify my account with them: it was just on there naturally, so to speak. The Bing verification procedure was a snap compared to the Google one. Can anyone help with these questions? Thanks.
The blog I need help with is creativeshadows.wordpress.com.
