    Perhaps I'm missing something here, but can't you just make a new blog post, paste that text in, and submit that as the proof URL? I think that's all they want you to do, you know. You can delete the post afterwards.

    Replace "" with your website URL. This URL must point to this text file to prove you own the website.
