google web master code allows google to access your site or in other words crawl it. helps google to index your site in its directory. (google search) also it helps google to look for site map etc.
Good for you business too, since 85 % of the searches are done with google yahoo and bing (earlier msn)

how to use it:
register youself to google webmaster central, (or use your gmail, orkut, google id to log in)
add your site, following links. (if you get stuck come to my site ill chat live to you to guide you through)
then they will give you a code and ask you to verify the website, now make sure you only copy the characters between the " " for eg,

in this case you only copy.."00y24..........vk="
now just paste that code in your yola site editor, page properties, where it says "google webmaster code" and update and wallah give it few weeks, yu site will be on google.
Also you can use webmaster central to check your site response on the web etc..

cheers !

Hi Danny,

To verify your site with Google Webmaster you need to use the meta tag option. It is very important that you copy the correct portion of the tag in order to be successful. Copy only the letter/number string between the quotation marks and paste it in the designated field in the Properties sidebar.

For detailed, step-by-step, instructions on how to verify your site with Google Webmaster and submit a sitemap, please see our Google Webmaster Tutorial - http://www.yola.com/tutorials/google-... Please use our instructions and not Google's. Google's are written on the assumption that you are coding the website from scratch. Our instructions are written to work specifically with Yola.

If you have any difficulty with this, please let us know.
