Step 4 After adding your site,you need to Authenticate(Verify your ownership)

There are two ways to verify your ownership.One is to upload a file to the root directory of your site which can't be possible in blogger.Another one is to 'adding a metatag' which is possible and the only way to verify ownership for bloggers.First,copy the metatag..

Next,sign in to your blogger account>Edit html and paste the metatag below the head tag and SAVE THE CHANGES,look at the screenshot below.

Next,you will get a message saying that 'Your site is pending authentication'

Note:Don't remove the metatag,they will revalidate your ownership by checking your ownership regularly.

Hey buddy nice article, but just add a little tip, as you can see that the meta tag which yahoo provides does not have a closing tag '/'

We have to insert the slash symbol ourselves, care for link exchange?
