Why won't my WordPress site verify with Google Webmaster Tools?

  1. The instructions seem pretty simple and straightforward. I tried copying the whole meta tag and just the tag content into "Available Tools" but Google Webmaster Tools keeps saying that verification failed. PLEASE HELP! Extremely frustrated! :P

  2. You need to copy and paste the WHOLE of the tag. It never works if you do what it suggests in the help page by adding just part of it.

    I have the same problem, I tried copying the whole tag, but still the verification failed. Any idea how to make it work?

  4. This instructions for verifying WordPress.com blogs, which do in fact work are found here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/webmaster-tools/ Any other instructions will not work.

    The error message is :
    Verification failed for http://wordpress.com/ using the Meta tag method (less than a minute ago). We couldn't find the verification meta tag.
    Verify your ownership of http://wordpress.com/.

  8. I had the same problem earlier today, and same message too. I just deleted the tag, and then re-added it, and tried again. It worked the second time.
