Site Verification for WordPress Sites
Establish your site’s authenticity by verifying your site with search engines like Google.
What is site verification?
Most search engines like Google and Bing provide additional services to website owners that are only available once the site is verified.
Site verification is not required for search engines to index your site but provides the following benefits:
- You can use Google Search Console to see what Google has indexed about your site.
- If for some reason search engines experience a problem indexing your site they have up-to-date information for getting in touch with you.
It is possible to do this manually but using Jetpack makes it much easier as you don’t need to touch your site code or header at all.
- Verify your site using the Jetpack dashboard instead of manually inserting META tags.
- Verify your site with Google, Bing, and Pinterest.
