Question: Is it the same process for setting up a Webmaster Central account? I tried setting up a Google webmaster tools account, and I couldn’t perform any of the validation procedures.
Answer: You can of course find Google Webmaster Tools at https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/. Here is the process:
If it doesn’t work, it means you have failed to either insert the tag in your home page, and/or upload the file, and/or failed to upload your NEW home page. You’ll have to check with your ISP / web provider or technical staff to make sure that you are correctly FTP’ng the files. If you are using a third party software like Website tonight by Godaddy, you’ll have to make sure you can paste the META TAG into the proper position in the software.
They are all different. Wish I could be of more specific help!
