Adding META tag to your blogger page layout

When I wanted to submit my blog for Google AdSense, I had to first confirm the ownership to my blog. It can be proved in two ways: either by adding a META tag in the HEAD section or by adding a HTML file in the site. Since I have my blog in the blogger.com, the easiest way for me to confirm my ownership is to add a META tag in my blog layout.

It is very easy to add this tag. Follow these steps.
  1. Login to your blogger account
  2. Click on Layout and then Edit HTML
  3. Search for the following phrase: all-head-content. This is the line that tells the blogger engine as to what needs to be included in the HEAD tag.
  4. Just before this line, not just before all-head-content, but before the line, include your meta tag. Most likely you will be including a META tag that looks like:
    <meta name='verify-v1' content="Some base64 encoded string"/>
  5. Save your changes and view your blog and confirm that your new META tag appears on the header.
Remember that though you specify name and content, when when blogger serves the page it will appear as content and name. Don't get confused. Another common issue is make sure this META tag appears as the first tag in the HEAD section as the Google doesn't recognize if it appears later in the HEAD section.
