Where on earth is the Verification link in Google Apps? Every time it seems like they change where it is. When I initially log into my account, I can't verify it because I have to change the nameservers first and then verify. The link was there before, now I can't find it. Don't tell me its at the top on the Dashboard, b/c it's not.


It just wasn't there. I don't think a screen shot would have helped. After another 45 min, From the dashboard, I had to click settings, Click Email under Services on the left, Click Instructions on how to activate Email, click Change MX records, Click verify domain ownership.

What a ridiculous process.


Hi everyone who are trouble finding the domain verificaton link on google apps. Please visit the following link enter your email id@yourdomain name and then you will find the links on very first page in the top.It may not work for all countries but its working in India atleast.



Get to the administration area. The URL should look something like https://www.google.com/a/cpanel/example.com/Dashboard where example.com is your domain.

Click the tab labeled "Setup" in the group along the top of the dashboard (yes).
The resulting screen will have a bunch of vertical tabs at left.
If it's not expanded already, activate the "Welcome" tab.
Under it is a "Verify domain ownership" item.

  • Ya, that's not right dude, sorry.

    @picxelplay You're going to have to define "not right," then. I specifically walked through the process in my own account to write that, and have now checked it for three domains, including one that hasn't been migrated/merged with the generic Google accounts. Maybe you have some slightly different version of the dashboard, or whatever. A screenshot might show that up.
