    I just moved my site from wordpress.com to .org. Over at .com I had inserted this google code on one of my (private) pages, so that google would index my site:
    google23cb7a6c8cca1xxx.html

    Do I still need it with a wordpress.org site. Will it confuse google? I now use google analytics.

    It sounds like you're using Google Webmaster Tools.

    Yes, if you are switching to the self-hosted version, your URL changed, therefore, you must reverify your site with Google. Note that Google will probably count both your old blog and your new blog as separate sites.

    Do not add the same tag to your new blog, but add a new site to Google Webmaster Tools, which will have a different tag to use.
