Hi
It sais that the they can't find the verification meta tag. It is the same meta tag that i used to verify www.gadget-webstore.co.uk and workrd fine. To be able to use the URL that i want i have to verify both versions with www and without www. The one with www its already verified. I've tried to resubmit another sitemap and that didn't work either.

Thanks Kershnee

just go ahead and copy the verification code for the 1 without the www and then paste it back in to the editor, save, republish and then verify - if that does not work you know its a google issue.

PS - after you have verified it, forget the www. - its really a horrible old school way to get to your domain - Big sites never use it -- "find it on doubleu doubleu doubleu.facebook.com" - its stupid and is just not the right way to do it.
