Having created my website I understood it would help visibility if I verified it to Google. Fiollowing their instructions I have uploaded a page which they recognise and have verified. You can see it listed at the bottom of my left sidebar - which is the problem. Obviously I would like it to disappear from the navigation, so I tried to set visibility to 'private', but this failed to verify and Google said it had to be public for it to be verified. Having verified, I have now asked them whether I can hide the link,and they say "Go to Presentation > Widgets in your Admin panel and you can edit which pages are displayed (or not) in your navigation." Are they right? - I can't see how to do this. Alternatively, now that I have verified, can i simply make it Private again, or will that 'un-verify' the site?
The blog I need help with is huddersfieldhistory.wordpress.com.
