Problems verifying blog

    Hi there.

    I'm trying to verify my new new blog, it's wordpress.com ending.

    I've logged into google webmaster tools and downloaded the html file.

    In 'Tools' i've copied the contents of the html file into the Google Webmaster Tools box, saved it, created a new WordPress page on my blog with the same name, and clicked on the 'confirm' link back on Google.

    GWTools is saying however that the verification file isn't found.
    Is there something I'm doing wrong?
    I can't see anywhere to actually upload the file in Tools, just a clear bar to paste in the code.

    The page is loading up

    The blog I need help with is theorwellianstatenewsservice.wordpress.com.

  2. The process we use for verifying free hosted WordPress.com blogs with search engines is found here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/webmaster-tools/

    Note: Even if you do not verify the blog the content will be indexed by search engines so don't feel panicky about this please.

    WordPress.com provides the search engines with site maps. We bloggers do nothing. http://en.support.wordpress.com/sitemaps/

    What attracts search engines is unique content the cannot be found anywhere else on the internet. Keep publishing original content frequently because it can take weeks before indexing will happen.

    NOTE: We cannot assist with search engine issues. They are between the blogger and the search engine. http://en.support.wordpress.com/search-engines/
