Verify your Blogger custom domain site with Google Webmaster Tools

When using Blogger custom domain it is not always convenient to upload files on to the domain as configuration of a fallback url is required. The problem becomes apparent when setting up services such as Google Webmaster Tools, which require some form of website verification. Luckily Google Webmaster Tools, unlike Google Applications for your domain, offers an option of just inserting a meta tag into your site's home page.

Using the meta tag option with Blogger is the easiest to do. All that is required is to go to Layout, click HTML, then just under the <head> tag, place your meta tag verification code. Go click verify in Google Webmaster Tools and everything should be fine.
