SquareSpace tip - Google WebMaster tools

With the google webmaster tools, you have to upload a html file with a specific name (looks like a Guid) to enable your ability to use the provided tools with your site.

Using the URL Shortcuts under web management, you can just put the file name in the shortcut URL and point it to anything in your site that resolves (/journal).  This will convince google that the file is there and that you can use the tools.
