I just added the site like it says to in GWT, and now i am on the part where you verify site ownership.
I downloaded the .html file from goggle like it says, and then uploaded it to the server.
I made sure that the file is there, and then clicked on the link that has the domainname.com and the name of the html file.
I get an error saying:
Error 404: NOT FOUND!
This domain name has just been registered.
This is not true, the site is older and ranks high.
I see there are other methods of verifying ownership, but i would rather just do this method.
Has this happened to you before? If so, what did you do to get around it?
