When changing a site domain name with Google Webmaster Tools, how can I verify both sites?
Google seems to require that both sites are simultaneously validated (by the same method) but with different meta tag codes. This is obviously impossible to achieve. I can't seem to to use the "change of name" function as even if I put both meta tags in the header at the same time (which allows me to validate both sites) the transfer fails as Google then seems to re-check the meta tags and finds the wrong one for one of the sites.
Am I doing something wrong?
All that's happened is that the domain name has changed, so it's not possible for me to use different meta tags on different sites. Is there a way I can tell Google about the domain name change?
