WordPress in google webmaster tools

How to register your blog at webmaster tools

The last hours it tried to register this wordpress blog in google webmaster tools.

After several unavailing attempts using the “Upload an HTML file to your server” option, i found a really simple solution.

Some time ago it seemed, that registering a wordpress blog at the google webmaster tooling was performed using the “Upload an HTML file to your server”. But it does not work anymore! I always got the error that the content of the website has wrong format.

The way to do

Assumed you already have a google webmaster account, i am going to explain the steps required to register a wordpress blog.

The first step is to add your site. There is nothing special.

To perform the next step, you have to select the option “Add a meta tag to your home page”. For normal you would have to paste this meta tag to the head section of your html-file.

Since we do not have access to the wordpresssite head tag, we are using a feature provided by wordpress.

Navigate to tools and paste the meta tag to the input field “Google Webmaster Tools”. Accept your input by saving the settings.

Final step – now you can return to “google webmaster tools” and verify your site. Everything should work properly and your wordpress blog had been added to the “google webmaster tools”.

    Nice, But I solved the problem in another way :
    I downloaded the Google Site Verification Plugin installed it and then go to settings – Google verification and – Start verification …
    Very simple and effective ;
    I just added the : http://www.vasilemovileanu.com web site.

    My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using
    WordPress on various websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.

    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can
    import all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any
    problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a
    lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate
