After mapping custom domain the next step is verifying your domain. Because without verify you site won't be trustable to Google. In addition without verification you can't able to use Google Apps for your Domain. So this is a compulsory procedure for making your Blog better. There are many ways we can verify our Domain, but among them the most easiest way for verifying domain by adding Meta Tag.

Generally we have to add <meta> tag to the <head> section of your website's home page is one way to verify domain ownership and activate Google Apps for your domain. To do this you have to have access on your site. Meta tag is mostly popular for content management system where user doesn't have direct access to HTML and system won't allow upload. So alternatively they use Meta tag  verification method.

Note that this might take 5 minutes to 1 hour an hour If Google don't find the tag immediately in your Blog site, but Google will check for the meta tag periodically. If everything is ok then you will see a success message with Congratulations. That means your site has successfully verified by Google. And now click on Continue text link for entering into your Webmaster tools.

But if verification failed or you did something wrong then it will show message like below--
Verification failed for http://www.yourdomain.com/ using the Meta tag method (less than a minute ago). Your meta tag is incorrect. Are you using a meta tag for a different site or user account?

However failure first time in verification you don't have to worry because you can try again and again. So until verification get success do it periodically.
