Google site ownership verification!

Hi guys,

My site not yet been indexed by google , is it due to verfication process

We offer two methods of verification. You can either upload an HTML file with a name we specify, or you can add a meta tag to your site's index file.


I opted for HTML Upload but then:

Verification status: NOT VERIFIED
Last attempt Jul 14, 2007: We've detected that your verification file returns a status of 404 (Not found) in the header

Any advice appreciated, happy sunday!

It's not due to verification process. Are you talking about google sitemaps?

It isn't hostgator's problem. You need to create a blank page and name it whatever google tells you then upload that to your site.... or place a piece of code into a meta tag and reupload that page... if google can't find the page or meta tag they want.... it's going to show a 404.... it has nothing to do with Hostgator.... if you can't figure out how to upload however, then hostgator should help you.
