After the CMS migration I commented about on the article MySQL Tuning Query Cache And Thread Cache, google had a couple of naps, the last one looked CRAZY on the stats! take a look yourself:

Graph where you can see the difference between google indexing our site and google having a nap

Grap where you can see the difference on the CPU usage between google indexing yourself and google having a nap

Does anybody need me to draw a circle around the difference? 🙂

WordPress MU, Google Analytics and Google Webmasters tools

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!
