A few of us have access to Google Webmaster/Search tools for
https://wordpress.org/, but we do not have access for the entire
wordpress.org domain which would grant us access to
https?://*.wordpress.org/ (ie. what we have + subdomains).
Additionally, The marketing team would like access to Postmaster tools for the email deliverability data, which also requires domain verification.
I can see that there’s two existing Google domain authorisations (
dig +short TXT wordpress.org) but I’ve been unable to locate whose Google accounts have access to that when asking around.
Can I please have access granted to the domain-level Search Tools / Postmaster tools so that I can provide access to those who need it?
In the event that systems do not have domain-level access, here’s some instructions to get it:
1. Grant my a8c account verification access and I’ll deal giving those who need it; add
wordpress.org TXT google-site-verification=RLa_vaBBembqlBHv2iGePxw7Cw2nQhbYjKLX7HWpSks (I’ll add systems a8c account for future uses. If option 2 is taken, I’ll remove this auth attempt from my account)
2. Visit Postmaster tools, Add a domain, get the TXT record and add it. Grant my a8c google account access + plus that of @eidolonnight to Postmaster + Search Console (Full access please). Verifying the domain for postmaster tools will also grant search console verification.
