Step 2 : Now you’ll need to add your site to your new Webmaster Tools account, the “www” is not necessary if you are using a custom domain with your Tumblr account & If you are using a standard Tumblr address (yourblog.tumblr.com) just enter the address as normal.
Click “Add a site” and then type your address in the text box that appears.
