Norton Safe Web site verification using Wordpress.com

I'm trying to verify site ownership of my wordpress.com site with Norton Safe Web. I've registered for Norton Safe Web, submitted my site, and am now being asked to verify ownership. However, there is no option on wordpress.com to copy a meta tag on the homepage or upload an html file. How would I do this?

Hello AP78

Welcome to the Norton Community Forum

First of all, I need the name of your website.. Are you able to just copy/paste the Meta Tag into the Source code using plain text, visible and  near the top of the home page.? As a last resort, you can paste the Meta Tag in your next post. Once I see the Meta Tag, then I can notify the Safe Web Team.

Have a Good Night and

Thanks.

Hello AP78

Thank you for pasting your Meta Tag on your website. I will notify the Safe Web Team. They will verify and evaluate your website. You will probably see when the Team responds before I do since you are in the UK.

Please stay tuned to this thread for a response from the Safe Web Team on Sunday night after midnight EST.

Have a Nice Day and

Thanks.

Yes, once the website has been verified and evaluated, you may remove the Meta Tag from your website.

Hi,

Norton Support followed up and informed me that the website is now turned green.

Thank you for your help.

Hello AP78

The Green OK that is currently there is for your front page. Once your website is live, it will have to be evaluated. Safe Web can't evaluate a website before it is live.

Hello AP78

That is a Google issue, not a Norton one. Norton doesn't put the entries into Google.

As floplot notes, if you are referring to what you see in a Google Search, you may be seeing a cached search result.

Hello

That link does bring you to your site. I don't know how often Google updates their listings. They do have a lot of listings to do 24/7.

Re: Norton Safe Web site verification using Wordpress.com

Thank you for yor response peterweb and floplot.

I understand this isn't a norton issue but do you have any idea on how to update this as soon as possible? or is it something that can only be done by google

Re: Norton Safe Web site verification using Wordpress.com

AFAIK The Google caches should automatically get refreshed in time. How much time? Only Google knows.

As it does not affect access to your site, I would not worry about this.

As a bonus, I see that the detailed Safe Web report for your live site shows all is good/green.
