The Google-Bot seems to be hitting my site with the incorrect verification method. I have Google Webmasters set up to use a meta-tag for verification, but I am still receiving requests for the html file method (which result in 404s). Google Webmasters still shows my site as verified. Should I be worried about this?
Could this be coming from another Google service? Should I switch to the html file method? Should I just use both? Here are the requests from the log just in case that's helpful.
