Google Hosted Apps Update

This afternoon, I was in the process of trying to set up a new Google Hosted Apps account when I discovered something had changed. Apparently, Google is selecting people at random to try out a new verification method. In the past, your choices were:

  • Add a new CNAME record to your DNS zone file
  • Upload an HTML file to your server
  • Add a meta tag to your home page and/or site template
