Both have tracking code.

I've added analytics tracking code to my footer so every pages get tracked and i've added webmaster tracking code to landing page only.

Is this correct or should i add the webmaster tracking code to every pages as well?

I want to analyze every pages but do I have to create multiple webmaster tracking codes then?

Correct me if i'm wrong, analytics code can be applied to all pages in a website?

Check Google official website.

asyncTracking will give you better loading. This is usual way.

The WebmasterTools tracking code goes only on the root page of the site or in a separate
google

.html
verification file. It is used only to verify the site ownership.

The Analytics code goes on every page where you need to track visitor activities.

Is not The WebmasterTools tracking code tracked by Analytics code?
We do not talk about verification as this can be done on the Homepage or I'm wrong...

Yes, after reading all the replies, i realize that webmaster code is only use to verify to Google that you own the site unlike Analytics. I adopted the upload html file method.

You can also verify your Webmaster Tools account by using your Google Analytics account, that way you don't need to add any further code or upload any files.

As was mentioned, if you use the async version of the GA code now you can place that at the top of the page as it loads independently of the content, it used to be placed at the bottom, in case it stalled the page loading.
