Know How to Verify Your Website

Various platforms allow website owners to have additional tools to help them use their sites. Among them are Google, Bing, and Pinterest.

For example, Google Search Console will show you the total number of individual URLs on your site that have been indexed by Google, which search keywords are most significant for your site, and other information about how Google is indexing your site.

Please note that verifying your site in order to use the webmaster tools is not necessary in order for your site to be indexed with Google, Bing, or any other search engine.
For most sites, in order to verify your site for webmaster tools, you normally need to add a hidden “meta tag” to your page or change a DNS entry. Since this isn’t always the easiest thing to do if you’re not technical, Jetpack’s Site Verification module is here.

If you have multiple domain names pointing to the same site, we recommend verifying the primary domain.

All of the Website Verification Services can be accessed by going to Jetpack > Settings > Traffic in your dashboard. There, you’ll find a card named “Verification Tools” where you can configure each service.

Here are instructions for how to verify your WordPress site with each service:

Google Search Console
Google Warnings
If you receive an email from Google or an alert in your Webmaster Tools dashboard that your site’s security certificate could not be found, this means your site was inadvertently added as a “secure” site. Here’s an example of the message you may have received:

  • If you’re receiving this message, you’ll need to remove the site from your Webmaster Tools account, and then add it back as a standard site. Here’s how to do it:
  • Bing Webmaster Center
    Pinterest Site Verification
    1. Log in at Pinterest with your Pinterest account.
    2. Go to your profile and click the gear menu, then Account Settings.
    3. Scroll down and enter your Website address if you haven’t already.
    4. Click the Verify Website button.
    5. A popup window will show a meta tag, which you’ll need to enter on your site. Copy the content value of the meta tag. The content value is the bold text in this example:
      <meta name="p:domain_verify" content="8525e3384b3545fb80b9e21f0910de21"/>
    6. Leave the verification page open and go to your blog dashboard (in a new tab/window).
    7. Open the Jetpack –> Settings –> Traffic tab and scroll down to the Site Verification section and paste the content value from your meta tag code from step 4 in the Pinterest Site Verification field of your blog dashboard.
    8. Click on Save Changes.
    9. Go back to the verification page and click the “Finish” button.
