Hi, we are thinking of moving our email to google apps and Google is asking if we can ad a verifiaction code into the header section of the website or a specific link to an html file.

eg an HTML file at the root of the site

The file would need to be

http://ourwebsite.com/google9c1xxxxxxxxxxxx.html

 

The contents of the file provide by google for upload is

google-site-verification: google9c1xxxxxxxxxxxx.html

or

 

adding a meta tag to the <head> section.

Can you provide information if these options are possible?

 

Many thanks.

Sorry for the delay replying,

You can use the CMS system to create any pages that you want - however I don't think you can create the requred .html file extension, so the file based verification method won't work.

Nor can you directly edit the HEAD section of the page.

However, Google Apps also offer a DNS based means of verifying domain name ownership. I have used this succesffully with our domains - you just need to add the specified record to the DNS settings of your domain.

I suggest you try the DNS method first. If this is for some reason impossible then I can look into the possibility of modifying the CMS to support one of the other two methods.

Thanks
