Re: Verifying site with Google
Ok, first thing to do is forget verification in the manner that you are doing.
The best way is to choose the 'upload a file' option. I find the code in your html option fails after 6 or so months and Google will ask you to reverify all the time.
So, choose the file option. Copy the code they give you apart from the end bit (.html)
Open a blank white page in BV and name it exactly the same as the code from google. Publish it to your site root folder i.e. public_html if this is your main site you are verifying.
Then click the verify button on the Google webmasters page.
Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.
