Google has recently announced the addition of a new verification method for website’s added by web masters on Google Webmaster Tools. The new verification method makes use of Google Tag Manager.
The verification via Google’s Tag Manager is only one click away if the web master is using the container snippet code. The container snippet code is provided on the setup process of a new website and the code looks like this:
<!-- Google Tag Manager -->
height="0" width="0" style="display:none;visibility:hidden"></iframe></noscript>
new Date().getTime(),event:'gtm.js'});var f=d.getElementsByTagName(s),
<!-- End Google Tag Manager -->
The above code is placed immediately after the opening <body> tag of every page of a website. With this snippet, you ‘ll be able to verify a domain name on Google Webmaster Tools with only one click. Very useful tool for people who are managing websites in large / blue-chip companies, where there are many dependencies on other teams for on-site changes.
This addition might be the occasion for many people who currently don’t use Google Tag Manager and in this way take advance of other Google products like AdWords Remarketing, DoubleClick Floodlight Counter, DoubleClick Floodlight Sales, Google Analytics tagging and more!
