Hello there! Thanks for stopping by. In this article, we’ll try to answer a question most new Brave Rewards publishers/creators might ask. “How to verify a blog hosted on Blogger/Blogspot for Brave Rewards?”
Before we answer this, I would like to elaborate that there a two “cases” of blogs hosted on Google’s Blogger platform. The first one uses a blogspot.com subdomain (ex. blogname.blogspot.com) and the second uses a custom domain (ex. www.example.com).
How to Verify Blogger/Blogspot on Brave Rewards
Let’s take a look at the options for website channel verification on Brave Rewards. For now, there are two options, but surely there are more to come as the developers promised.
- Brave Payments Verification plugin for websites built with WordPress.
- DNS Verification by adding a TXT record
If you are using a free blogspot subdomain for your blog, unfortunately at this point of time there is no such way to verify your blog on Brave Rewards. This is because you have no access to the DNS records of your subdomain and you can’t use a WP plugin on Blogger.
However, you can purchase a custom domain for your blog where you will have access to the DNS Records of your domain. You will then be able to add TXT record to verify your website.
