think any weight is given to Webmaster tools verification? mike2010 msg:4641376 11:40 pm on Jan 30, 2014 (gmt 0) wondering thoughts on total amount of sites verified on both / or either Google Webmaster Tools ....and Bing Webmaster Toolbox. For instance, if you own 20+ domains...and verify them on both of the sites above...if any minor weight is added to all your sites in general, just for owning so many ? thought about it today, but doubt we'll hear anything official on this ?

I have 46 sites verified in Google Webmaster Tools. I haven't noticed any weight being given, so if there's anything then it's minimal. mike2010 msg:4642136 4:51 pm on Feb 3, 2014 (gmt 0)
any other insight ? creative craig msg:4642140 5:13 pm on Feb 3, 2014 (gmt 0)
Are you suggesting that because you own 20 domains and have them all verified in Google webmaster tools that you would get a boost (however small) in your rankings? GoNC msg:4642167 7:12 pm on Feb 3, 2014 (gmt 0)
That's how I took it, Craig. Thinking about it, doing that would be counter-productive. Domain squatters could have thousands of domains, and if verifying them gave weight then you would see a bunch of "buy this domain" sites at the top of every search. brotherhood of LAN msg:4642169 7:28 pm on Feb 3, 2014 (gmt 0)
Seems like the barrier to entry is too low for it to be of any value in being a signal. Google isn't really getting any other information than "you have access to the servers hosting these sites".
