    Not a Xenforo problem btw, I'm not sure if this is the right forum? I'm linking my new domain's email to google apps. It wants me to add this into the <head> of my homepage

    <meta content="xLRLhUJa4vAh7KTDiHAgMll9k-9SJcrPkw6d9XwuJYk" name="google-site-verification">
    Next I tried to set my site up with webmaster tool, which, to verify my website I need to add another meta tag.

    <meta content="vBImX45-GHzWINAQwpNP14Vk2QUueP3d2yqY7pgAwbA" name="google-site-verification">
    obviously they're conflicting each other. What should I do in this case?

    You can verify for Webmaster tools using an html file in the root.

    It's an option available on the Google verification page.

    Recommended: Upload an HTML file to your server
    You can use this option if you can upload new files to your site.

    I see. Thanks Brogan

    I'm trying to find the option to change my verification. I can't seem to find it... any pointer?

    I removed the meta tag. Google isn't giving me the option to re verify yet. Maybe I have to wait a while?

    Once it fails verification on the next crawl, the option should become available.
