If your website is created in WordPress it’s now even easier to verify. When you claim a website in Nibbler we ask that you add a meta tag into your website’s template, this is to prove that the website was created by you. Stephan Gerlach has created a WordPress plugin that now easily allows you to add the verification code without having to edit your template.
I used to add my codes manually to the templates. Whenever I changed the template I had to remember to also update the verification code. This became a tedious task and I thought that there should be an easier way to do this. So I looked for a WordPress plugin thinking that someone should have already written one. When I didn’t find one I decided to write my own. This is actually the first plugin I have published. I am planning on creating some updates in the future and am more than happy to hear about suggestions.
Stephan has been a user of Nibbler since we launched the latest version back in October and is currently the 41st highest user.
What I like most about Nibbler is that it simply gives you hints and tips on how to improve your website across a number of areas. When I make changes I can easily track my progress. And when all suggestions and errors are fixed I come out at the top (see one of my websites http://www.ldstoolbar.com)
You can download the wordpress plugin here or search the plugins directory inside your WordPress install for the word “nibbler”. The installed plugin will look like this:
Simply add your verification code and press save. Your verification code is the long string of numbers inside the meta tag we give you when you select to claim a website.
