Verification of Site on Google - not working

 
Guest

Hi all

I am having trouble verifying my site on google.

I already have a google account and have 3 other sites verified successfully. I set up a new UA number for my wizzley profile (ie it ends in 4 as I have 3 others) and its all set up in Analytics OK.  I have then added that number ie UA-12345678-4 into my settings here on my profile.

Then I go to me webmaster central to verify my site and it does not verify.

 

Any clues as to what I may be missing?

 

Thanks

Wizzley is not your site and hence you can't verify it. You don't have your own domain or sub domain here.

Oh...so I'll never be able to verify it?

 

How then can I track it properly in google like you can with other sites (and HP)?

The only thing that you could possibly find useful in Webmaster tools is the ranking stats, which show average google rank for keywords, but there are other free tools for that....

Thanks - I'll have a look into that.

At least I'm not going cookoo - I've been trying for hours to work out how to do it. 

Thanks :)

You don't need Webmaster Tools to track your Wizzley pages. Enter your Analytics tracking ID in your Wizzley settings, and you're done. It may take a day before you see the first entries in your Google Analytics account.

Enter "Google Analytics" in our search field, and you'll find several Wizzley tutorials on that subject.

I have the same concern as the guest user (I wonder why he or she is gone).

Not with Google Analytics — which is working — but with Google Webmaster Tools (and possibly Google authorship too). Wizzley is not our own site, we don't have our subdomain here. When the no-index is removed from our profile page, is it possible to get the Webmaster Tools to index our pages? Or not because we can never register the profile page in Webmaster Tools?

I'm asking, because it's currently taking time for my first pages to get indexed. I'd heard of Google reacting negatively to no-index tags, not returning until after two weeks or longer after seeing a no-index tag on a link. I used to go around this in another site by getting Google to index my article using Webmaster Tools.

I don't think Webmaster Tools actually do any indexing. They just provide ranking data like keywords.

You may have to do a bit more promotion of your first few pages. You could start by adding Wizzley to your Google Plus profile as a site you contribute to. Try Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook as well.

Thanks, nightowl. I'll do what you say.

I do get articles indexed with Google Webmaster Tools. The feature is called "Fetch as Google." But I guess that would be irrelevant here.

Fetch as Google isn't a tool which intended to speed up or induce indexing.

Hi ryank! I should have been more complete. After I Fetch as Google, I "Submit to Index." The latter submits the fetched url for indexing. Google has the discretion whether to accept or refuse to index the url, but so far they haven't rejected one of mine.
