Nobody likes to duplicate effort. Unfortunately, sometimes it's a fact of life. If you want to use
Google Analytics, you need
site in other Google products (such as
you have to add a
meta tag, HTML file or DNS record to your site. They're very similar tasks, but
also completely independent. Until today.
Don't forget that once you've verified ownership, you can add other verified owners quickly and easily through the Verification Details page. There's no need for each owner to manually verify ownership. More effort and time saved!
We've also introduced an improved interface for verification. The new verification page gives you more information about each verification method. In some cases, we can now provide detailed instructions about how to complete verification with your specific domain registrar or provider. If your provider is included, there's no need to dig through their documentation to figure out how to add a verification DNS record—we'll walk you through it.
The time you save using these new verification features might not be enough to let you take up a new hobby, but we hope it makes the verification process a little bit more pleasant. As always, please visit the Webmaster Help Forum if you have any questions.
