    Hey guys

    I am trying to verfy my site in google tools.

    I need to upload some kinda file to my site to verfy that the site is mine.

    Where do I install this file? My site had wordpress installed and i just uploaded it via file management and put it in the folder "wp-content". But this doesn't seem to work.

    Anyone got any ideas??

    Sorry for the noob question lol

    Thanks
