@NahidSultan, can you please add link to community discussion? On the other hand, @Jalexander, what do we need to do to verify WP link ownership https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1142414, while still be in compliance?

Please describe what this task is about and how to reproduce some problem or where which specific suggestion should be shown and what "WP link ownership" refers to and what kind of "bn.wikipedia.org button" the task summary talks about and what the linked community discussion is about and how Operations are supposed to be related here.
Thanks a lot in advance!
Recently We had a discussion on Bengali Wikipedia Community whether we can add our social network links in bnwp's main page. Now we'd like to add verification badge next to bnwp's website on our Google+ page. In order to do that we need to verify bn.wikipedia.org via Webmaster Tools (https://support.google.com/business/answer/4569085?hl=en). Once webmaster approve the request that google will send, a verification badge will be added next to bn.wikipedia.org address on google plus (like the one added to Wikipedia's g+ page, you can see the verification badge next to wikipedia.org: https://plus.google.com/+Wikipedia/posts). Thanks
I think the current arrangement is closer to Discovery being self-service and being responsible for maintaining their own access. Whether they would also service outside requests hasn't been discussed. I don't know if this falls under their domain or not. This is a pretty unique request from what I can tell.
Yeah I'm not sure we have a formal set of "whose responsible for what" right now with Google Webmaster... Personally I'm happy to help confirm the connection but let me check with the lawyers first. I should hopefully respond here within 48 hours but if I don't please feel free to poke me either here or elsewhere.
Just a note that I've reached out internally to a contact to see if this is okay and achievable.
In searching the internet about implementation, it appears the setup may be more complicated than Search Console URL verification, potentially involving certain criteria for number of Google Plus followers and Google reaching out to the Google Plus account holder.
I'm closing this task as Google+ policy on this matter has changed since we started this discussion. This tick mark beside the website address is no longer applicable. There is only one tick mark now beside the page name. They even changed the layout since we started this.
Well, you're indeed right though I wasn't interested in verifying the page if that's what you meant. Anyways, this task is obsolete now because google+ itself changed it. Thanks for this reminder though :)
