Verifying Google via WordPress and PHP
Likes the Hosket
So I'm stumped on what is probably an easy solution.
Trying to verify my Google+ Page, part of which is linking the web site to the page and using a bit of their code.
The code looks like this
<a href="https://plus.google.com/1234567890" rel="publisher">Find us on Google+</a>
The instruction they give (which is clearly not for PHP sites) looks like this:
"Copy and paste the code snippet provided to the <head> of your website and click the Test website button."
So I go to my WP Editor, open the header.php file (nearest thing I can figure). But I realize right away this won't work because all the tags in the <head> area look like this:
<link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo('pingback_url'); ?>" />
So I got all clever and tried to extrapolate and did this, to no avail.
<link href="https://plus.google.com/1234567890" rel="publisher" />
Help a brother out... I can't find a single thing in Google's useless help how to make this work with PHP.
I thought maybe I was wrong about the header.php, but going to the various content pages (where one might see a visible href), none of those files have <head> tags AFAICT.
