I am having problems with verifying my google webmaster tools account and this seems to only happen with
enfold. Basically you have to upload a verification html document to the web root which I have done and which I can
see in the folder, however, when navigating to it both physically and via webmaster tools verification I get a page not found error. This means I cannot verify my account. I use other WP themes and I don’t have this problem so I am a bit lost with what to do.
You can try to switch to the default theme (TwentyThirteen) and check if the verification works. Afaik Google does not verify the website every day but just one time and you can delete the verification html file afterwards. You can also try to use the meta tag validation method which is supported by Yoast SEO: http://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/
