@philodygmn You can verify your account with keybase, and you can also have a verified link to a domain in your profile. Personally I don't see the point — there is nothing stopping my neighbor from telling everyone they are me, and yet somehow they don't do it.
@zladuric Apparently it's as simple as putting a link back to the profile with rel="me" on it on the page to which you are linking: https://docs.joinmastodon.org/user/profile/#verification
