How do I add Google Webmaster Tools to multi domain Universal Analytics account. Currently we have roughly 16 different international domains all reporting into the same Google Universal Analytics account and need to verify all domains as well.

Hi Quan, Are you trying to verify your sites with the methods provided for google for all your domains in Webmaster tools? It looks like google provide multiple solutions to verify you site. The recommended method from Google is to go through your domain name provider. However I see these alternate methods listed below after I signed in to my Google Webmaster Tool. I wanted to post the link here, but I think it is specifically generated after you sign in. - Google Analytics If you have GUA installed on the pages. This method might work. Make sure you have "edit" permission for the Analytics web property. - HTML tag You can try to add a meta tag to the pages configured through Tealium. (**This might not work because Google is probably looking the the meta tag on the pre-rendered page. Therefore it might not be detected.) - uploading the generated HMTL verification file to your site - Google Tag Manager with the container snippet. I hope this helps to answer your questions. If not feel free to reach out to your Account Manager and we can have someone take a closer look! -Jasmine

Hi Jasmine! Thank you for your response. I tried to validate through our current implementation of GUA, but that didn't work since it does look like it's probably looking for the GUA code on a pre-rendered page. HTML tag was my next method, but I believe this will result in the same as the Google will be looking for the tag on a page that hasn't fired the tags yet. I'll keep on looking and I hope this is something that can be done in Tealium's TMS...if not, then we'll have to upload the generated HTML verification for each of our 18 sites directly, which is a project I don't think we have time for in the near future. Thank you again!

I don't think this can be done in Tealium (I believe Google is looking at HTML source) The DNS method may be the easiest if you are not able to update your site content. https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/35179?hl=en

I had the exact same issue and tried a few of the methods mentioned and can confirm it cannot be done via meta tag or GA. Google indeed seems to look at the pre-rendered page. Uploading the HTML-file seems to be the most painless option here.
