To use certain Google services with your website or domain, you currently have to verify that you own the site or domain, since these services can share sensitive data (like search queries) or operate Internet-facing services (like hosted email) on your behalf. One of the supported verification methods until today was "domain verification," that requires a user to manually create a DNS TXT record to prove their ownership.

For many users, this can be challenging and difficult to do. Now, to help webmaster, Google today in collaboration with Go Daddy and eNom, introducing a simple, automated solution for domain verification that guides you through the process in a few easy steps for users to verify domains for Google services like Webmaster Tools and Google Apps.

"If your domain name records are managed by eNom or Go Daddy, in the Google site verification interface you will see a new, easier verification method (as shown in the pic below). Selecting this method launches a pop-up window that asks you to log in to the provider using your existing account with them," explains Anthony Chavez, Product Manager.

The first time you log in, you'll be asked to authorize the provider to access the Google site verification service on your behalf. Next you'll be asked to confirm that you wish to verify the domain. And that's it! After a few seconds, your domain should be automatically verified and a confirmation message displayed.

Google says that Bluehost customers will also be able to enjoy the same capability in the near future. And, promises to bring more partners to bring to this new domain verification method.
