Google Webmaster Tool added Website DNS Verification method

Google Webmaster Tool added Website DNS Verification method

Last time when I have written How to submit your sitemap to Google I have used HTML file method to verify my domain into Google webmaster tool. This is good news for webmasters who are comfortable with DNS record and now they can quickly verify their domain using Google webmaster tool.

In the recent update Google webmaster team added

we bring you another new way to verify. Verification by DNS record allows you to become a verified owner of an entire domain (and all of the sites within that domain) at once. It also provides an alternative way to verify for folks who struggle with the existing HTML file or meta tag methods.


This is somehow useful for users who wants to quickly verify their domain using DNS. Though depending on your domain registrar, your DNS propagation might take some time.

Don’t forget submitting sitemap is one of the essential part of SEO. So if you have not submitted sitemap to Google, Bing and Yahoo, you should do it right-away.

Do let us know which method do you use to verify your blog in Google webmaster tool?
