FantaOne of my favorite soft-drinks that I rarely have unless I travel to places like Israel is Fanta. So when I saw a forum thread at Google Webmaster Help about Fanta, I honestly got a bit excited.

As I read on, I became a bit sad.

So Fanta.com redirects, depending on your location, to a special landing page, in my case fanta.com/en_US/pages/landing/index.html. Many sites like them do the same thing and it isn't the end of the world.

But as I read the thread, the "FantaSeo" is simply trying to figure out how to verify Fanta.com with Google Webmaster Tools. There are about four different ways to verify your site with Google Webmaster Tools. They include HTML file, Meta tag, DNS entry or Google Analytics methods.

So it was upset to see it is taking this long for the Fanta Fanta SEO to verify the Fanta.com site but hey, the web server can have some serious limitations?

Big brands can be a pain in the ass sometimes... Most of them will not give you access to their servers or to the agency in charge of the "SEO project", and you end up trying to find work arounds to a small problems instead of waiting they finish to analyze and read 83285 emails about if it's safe or not to make a simple meta tag addition. I don't know if this is the case, maybe it's just a junior intern trying to figure things out.
