Unable to verify my domain with google despite of 3 recommended methods victorious.knight 4/30/12 12:43 PM
I have a domain and want to use google mail for that domain. I tried all of the below methods:
1- Added a txt record to my DNS server.
2- Uploaded the code file which I downloaded from google tools. (I can browse the file)
3- Added a meta tag to my website. (I can see the google verification code in meta tag when i view source my home page)

Unfortunately non of the methods is helping. Every time I click verify it throws failure error. will someone please help.

what is your domain have you try sign out of all accounts and then sign into the admin and get check see if there is a diffrent txt string if there is a diffrent txt string update it in your dns and try again.

Thank you for your response. all txt method kept on failing for almost 5 days. While File Upload and meta tag both methods failed for a few hours. And all of a sudden it verified when I logged in after a couple of hours. It has now been verified and I can now send and receive emails. But I could never know why it was failing and which of the verification methods eventually helped.

when you used the meta tag verification it takes it little while for it to pickup the meta tag.
