    You should prove Google that you are the proprietor of the website you claim in order to use free service by Google for your website,. Google verify ownership of a website using three methods i.e Meta tag, Upload an HTML file, DNS Verification. Once your site is verified, you can use Google Webmaster Tools to do all sorts of diagnostics on your site.

    You should have a bit of code that you can copy/paste into your template's header, then go into webmaster tools and use the verification.

    Since it's hosted on WordPress.com, I'm not 100% whether that will work or not, but it should.

    If you have more specific questions, I can probably help you with them. Just let me know. PM or reply, either way. :D

    This is one of the many reason why people who are serious about blogging should not select wordpress . com as a blogging service.

    Even though WordPress as software by itself is the best choice as long as you install it on your own in any free or paid hosting service away from WP domain.

    Now about your question, due to Wordpress imposing too much limitations, including the fact that you shouldn't monetize with your blog if hosted on wordpress . com, you may try to install a plugin that allow you to embed into your theme the meta tag that Google provides.

    This is one of those plugins, https://wordpress.org/plugins/header-and-footer-scripts/

    Again, not sure if a free hosted forum is allowed to install this or similar plugins.

    I started on on WordPress.com. I can vouch for Mystique on this...they don't like people monetizing their site (although I used to do it all of the time...long story...it's why I don't use their hosted sites anymore).

    Self-hosted is definitely the way to go, but that plugin should help.

    It's not a way to ans the question. IF i would have found it than why I waste my time posting the thread.

    There is no option of coding with free .wordpress.com domain I know the software which wordpress provides but with thier domain which is free they do not give flexiblity to code.

    They are not giving option to install the plugins so I can't install the plugin which you suggested to me.
    I got the following "
    Want to add a store to your site?
    Support for Shopify, Ecwid, and Gumroad is now available for WordPress.com Business.
    "
    You are right that we used the self hosted wordpress site which i have but for seo purpose I am using the .wordpress website also.
    About ad since they are investing money and time with blogs we started they showing thier own ads and not allow people to earn free.

    Right. They don't allow you to edit WordPress itself...unless they've changed it, they did used to allow you to edit the themes to an extent. And there are probably some plugins that could help with this. Honestly, it's been a while since I've used WordPress.com for anything, so I could be wrong.

    You may put the Meta verification tag in the header of your site. Just click edit option under the appearance menu and edit the header page and put the tag before the closing of head tag (</head>) Hope this will help you :)

    Yeah you are right!

    You seems that you are talking about software that Wordpress provide and not the free domain and hosting they are giving.

    are you using Yoast SEO?
    If use, then simply go "Yoast SEO --> General Setting --> webmaster tools -->google search console: here put the webmaster code" then go webmaster tools and verify your site.

    If not use, you can install the plugin "Yoast SEO" then go "Yoast SEO --> General Setting --> webmaster tools -->google search console: here put the webmaster code" then go webmaster tools and verify your site.

    I think in this process you can solve your problem.

    No you can't verify it, only blogger & Tumblr have this facility.

    if you don't know about the verification it not mean that you can't verify that.
