Once you submitted your blog URL, now you need to verify it, so let me tell you two different ways to verify your blog

1st way I will tell you using META tag

  2. Now you will see a META tag copy that META tag
  3. Open your WordPress blog Dashboard
  4. Now go to Appearance –> Editor

  7. Now past that META tag just after <head>
  8. Click on Update File button
  9. Now again go to Google.com/webmasters/tools/home
  10. If you can’t see your blog, you see something written like this
  11. Use the table below to manage verified owners of your sites or add new sites to your account. Additional information about your verified sites is available at Webmaster Tools.

    Click on Webmaster Tools link

  12. Now click on Verify this site button (at the right-hand side of your blog URL)
  13. Then again select Add a meta tag to your site’s home page radio button
  14. Then click on Verify button
  15. Add a meta tag to your site's home page

2nd way I will tell you using uploading file to server

  1. Select Upload an HTML file to your server radio button
  2. Click on this HTML verification file link (a HTML file will get downloaded)
  3. Now open your FTP root directory of your blog
  4. Upload file which you have downloaded from Google Web Master Tools
  5. Now again go to Google.com/webmasters/tools/home
  6. If you can’t see your blog, you see something written like this
  7. Use the table below to manage verified owners of your sites or add new sites to your account. Additional information about your verified sites is available at Webmaster Tools.

    Click on Webmaster Tools link

  8. Now click on Verify this site button (at the right-hand side of your blog URL)
  9. Then again select Upload an HTML file to your server radio button
  10. Then click on Verify button
  11. Upload an HTML file to your server

Note: – don’t make any changes in META tag or file which you downloaded from Google Web Master Tools.

Now your blog is verified, submit your blog sitemap so Google can index all your blog content. If you have any question or problem let me know.
