This should get rid of yahoo..

Not sure what is needed for google, but it seems to work as is no matter how easy it is via other means.

EDIT: Must remember to remove it project page https://www.drupal.org/project/site_verify too

Does anyone have a link to an article that confirms the y_key meta tag was dropped by Yahoo?
