I tried to upload the file google9aedadfa5be8a815.html under my site's working directory where I installed via ghost instal command.
but only get 404 error while visiting http://www.errong.win/google9aedadfa5be8a815.html
Thanks to Nistor Cristian, kevin, vikas.potluri, they replied my thread quickly in ghost.slack.org and I got the issue fixed.
simply include it in your theme and should work

I moved google9aedadfa5be8a815.html there and then it works.
You do not even need to restart your ghost(ghost restart).
You can use below command to check it.
