validating blog for SEO

  1. I have tried several times to follow the instructions to connect my blog up for SEO with Google and have been unsuccessful. Any tips?

  2. Uh, give us the >URL of your blog.

  3. The only process that we can use for verifying free hosted WordPress.com blogs with search angines is found here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/webmaster-tools/

  4. oops! typo = search engines

  5. We cannot access metadata on free hosted WordPress.com blogs as we are all on the same multiuser bloggging platform and all blogs wearing the same theme are using the same underlying template. We cannot edit templates and themes and insert any metadata at all. http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/editing-themes/

    Google recommends the XML sitemap as the best means of communicating site specific data and WordPress.com automatically generates an XML sitemap for your blog http://en.support.wordpress.com/sitemaps/#xml-sitemaps-for-search-engines
