Hello readers,

I just set up the blog and I want to add it to the huge google’s database,

What I should do?
I had got a little piece of js code from google’s analytics webpage:

Google Analytics section inside WordPress MU<script src=”” type=”text/javascript”>
<script type=”text/javascript”>
_uacct = “UA-xxxxxxx-xx”;


I could add it because WordPress MU has an special section for doing it, now is working, cool.

But… what about google’s webmasters tools ?

Does WordPress MU have any section helping you to verify your blog?

No, it doesn’t, bullshit.

I did try to prepare an static page with the name of the file and the content of the file google’s gave me… didn’t work. I tried to fake a meta tag header somehow and didn’t work neither, I can not upload html files, the admin does not let me modify the headers of the theme… this sucks, does anybody have an idea how to do it? or maybe  it’s not definitely possible, I don’t know, and now I don’t care.

If anybody knows a trick, here I am waiting.

11/04/2012: The UV blogs IT people managing the WMU just added a plugin called HeadMeta and now I can fake the head method for adding my blog to the google’s webmasters tools! did anybody from the IT people read me? Thank you folks!
