Google Webmaster Tools verification problem | Forum

Taimur Apr 10 '11
I tried to verify the site by uploading a HTML file to server but due to dynamic 404 function system redirected that URL to error page and Google bot can't verify.

Also i tried by Google analytic but Google didn't find any analytic code, whereas i added Google analytic and its working fine.

Any Solution for this ?

I have solved how to do this renaim your  htaccess file to  htaccess@@@

then upload your google and/or yahoo verify file/s and now you can verify your website .then change the htaccess file back  (solved)

Maybe there should be a solved board and all posts that get solved should be moved there ,it would make things so much better .

You can add the following code into your .htaccess file right below RewriteRule (.*) index.php line:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/google_verification_filename.html

Where google_verification_filename.html is your verification file name.
