Google play market online store won't see phone

Now try accessing the Play Store app.
Let me know how you get on.
I searched and searched for an answer. I installed a custom 4.2 ROM on my Galaxy Nexus and restored my data through Titanium Backup. For some reason, the Google Play/Market store online would not "see" my phone, no matter how many times I accessed Google Play Market store through my Android phone.
I had access through my phone, but not the "remote" access that lets you install apps from your computer. Major pain!
I tried all sorts of stuff. I removed my gmail account, signed back in, etc. I installed new apps through my phone just to "access" the market through my phone. So, I kept searching for an answer and most people just kept quoting google's answer, which is idiotic (that I hadn't accessed the Play Market through my phone yet. I had! A hundred times!)
YOUR answer worked! Thank you again.
(This thread isn't even for my particular phone, but the answer has nothing to do with the type of phone.)
Your creed may be interesting, but your deeds are much more convincing.
