Google Site Verification WordPress Plugin

If you have built a website, you may know that one of the first things you’d do is to verify your site with Google. This will help your site get indexed by Google.

So far, you’d have to do it by one of 2 ways through Google Webmaster Tools. However it involved either editing some file in your webserver or adding a HTML file with a specific unique name.

Google has just made it easier for WordPress websites to get verified with a WordPress plugin.

Google Site Verification plugin lets you verify your WordPress website in just a couple of clicks.

In addition to easy site verification, the plugin also provides ability to view search statistics and diagnostic information for your blog in Google Webmaster tools.

Make note of the following requirements

This plugin needs WordPress 3.0 (or higher), PHP 5.2.0 (or higher), the JSON PHP extensions, and the CURL PHP extensions. The plugin won’t activate if these requirements aren’t met.
