I just noticed that in the Tools section of the administration pages on my hosted WordPress blog (this one), I can insert the metadata tags which the big sites’ Webmaster tools require to verify a site. By doing this verification, you can improve your readership and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for your blog.
If you’re interested in doing this, the page where you enter the metadata tags is:
At the bottom of the page is a section entitled: Webmaster Tools Verification. If you’re not sure how to go about getting the right metadata tags, check out the support information. The capability is currently provided for Google Webmaster Tools, Yahoo! Site Explorer, and Bing Webmaster Center.
