Hi bri

Verifying your site with Google Webmaster requires you to add a metatag or upload a file to the root directory of your site. Right now this is not possible, although we hope to create a feature that will allow you to do this soon.

In the meantime, have you tried Google Analytics? Here is a link to the instructions:

To verify with google, get a meta tag code from the google verify page & goto the properties section on your homepage in synthasite, then paste the code into the google webmaster code box found under properties on the homepage. Note you dont need all of the code provided by google, have a look at googles error message after retrying to verify & delete the parts you dont need & try again. Hve sucessfully done this twice with www.thewinningtouch.synthasite.com and www.thatched-house.co.uk

Thanks for that! This thread is dates back to before we had this feature available! I am glad that you have been successful with two of your sites! I am going to archive this thread to make sure no one thinks that they can't use Google Webmaster with SynthaSite now! Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
