I tried verifying my website using the html file but it refuses to even after the file can be seen so I decided to use the Meta Tag approach. But the problem is I don't know where to add the Meta Tag. Can anybody please tell me where to do so?

This will lead to less consistent results (if you change the default theme, you lose the verification) than editing the includes/meta.php file, which has all the other meta tags you'll probably want to edit as well.

You'd add:

$METATAGS['verify-v1'] = 'somerandomstringofcharacters';

right above/below the keywords line (Line 18, I believe). If you edit meta.php, save a copy of it separately - I update from the CVS and I always forget and overwrite the damn thing... Mad

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Here is th error I am getting:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '<' in /home/.mosby/imranali/www.radopod.com/includes/meta.php on line 18

Any suggestions for the same?

I even tried the method suggested by mdthomann, but in vain again. Please help!

There's no '<' in the line of code that darkgrue posted.

Here it is again '< in /home/.mosby/imranali/www.radopod.com/includes/meta.php on line 18'. Sorry for the mistake.

You have corrupted one of your files when you made a change - re-load an original file and modify it again.

Sorry for the confusion people:

Here is the tag

<meta name="verify-v1" content="2aK4zJYWblWbopvwa/eW6USxWKZurq5sKHjEJ08IPls=" />

that I got from Google. Can somebody put it on the file and mail it over to me @ imran @ radopod.com please!

i had the same problem, first i've tried the blank html file but google sitemaps had problems finding that file. ¬¬

Then Added this code in header.php (Line 72, $Revision: 9.28 $)

$header .='<meta name="verify-v1" content="VxoK+ff+/X2kC55mY8CF7Xt0ZQ6MFUk8AhvYp55GnlU=" />'."\n";


But

Google Site maps wrote
Verification status: NOT VERIFIED
Last attempt Apr 5, 2007: We've detected that your verification file returns a status of 403 (Forbidden) in the header.


I've searched in my log file and found this:


Host: 72.14.195.146
Http Code: 403 Date: Apr 05 03:35:11
Http Version: HTTP/1.1 Size in Bytes: 586
Referer: - Agent: Google-Sitemaps/1.0


But google bot is visiting my site (eating bandwidth =P)
Also running the Robots.txt analysis from google its said

Crawl-delay: 20 Rule ignored by Googlebot


I've noticed that in Security->Bots Google-Sitemaps/1.0 is not listed. I've turned off the Bots option and tried again to verify. But again got: Error 403 on header...
[b]Then turned off Unknown user agents And my site was verified successfully using the meta option!/b]

hope this help. But... how i can add Bots/UserAgents to the Security system? is it safe to add a new row in the security table? because id like to turn On the Unknown user agents protection.

INSERT INTO `nuke_security_agents` ( `agent_name` , `agent_fullname` , `agent_hostname` , `agent_url` , `agent_ban` , `agent_desc` ) VALUES ( 'Google-Sitemaps', 'Google-Sitemaps', NULL , NULL , '0', NULL );

it will be right?

well, I simply added mine to my theme header.html and never had any issues<head> {S_HEADER_TAGS} <meta name="verify-v1" content="myverificationcode" />This was the first solution mentioned at the start of the topic, but darkgrue's makes a lot of sense.
