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”.
