New Features for Verification Management in Google Webmaster Tools

These days, whether businesses be online or otherwise, they often are likely to have a partnership, where more than one individual is working. In situations like these, distributing online resources and tools can be quite tricky. Imagine that you have to share your website’s passwords with your partner(s). Now the problem immediately arises here, because you simply can’t trust anyone with a password. But luckily, Google has made it amazingly easy for individuals to share vital resources and tools between partners, such as website verifications in Google Webmaster Tools. Now some latest features have been introduced by Google for its management of multiple users feature.

Verification Details

Now, you can view the verification methods for all the verified owners of your website, so that you can easily track that who you add, and who somehow tricked you and then got in. You can easily access all this information. Simply log in to your Google Webmaster Tools account, and click your site. Now, from the Configuration menu, click on Users.
Then you will see a Manage Site Owners just at the top-right. Click this and it will take you to the verification information page.
Now you will be able to see all the verified owner, and the verification methods they have used. To find out more, click the verification details next to each user.

Unverifying an Owner

With the new features introduced, you can now no-longer un-verify an owner of your website if the method(s) with which they were verified still exists. For instance, if the owner was verified through meta tags, then Google Webmaster Tools will give you an error, and you won’t let you un-verify the owner until the meta tag is there.

CNAME Verification

In order to support a large number of DNS providers, CNAME verification strings have now been shortened. Actually, some DNS providers restrict the number of characters used for a record, as a result of which many users couldn’t use this verification method. But now, with short strings, users will finally be able to use this method. And the best part is that the existing strings won’t change, and all the old ones will work just fine.
