Why is Google Webmaster not Verifying?
If you are having trouble getting your site to verify with Google Webmaster there are a few reasons why this could be happening.
- Make sure that you have entered the proper code into the Google Webmaster field located under Settings > Tracking. You only need to enter the text that is between the " " and nothing else; it will look something like this: XlBMeWkrAxWIJtD5n3C3N8Zv09QKKl3R1MaoZnssKA0
- Make sure you clicked Publish after you entered the code. This will apply the change to your site so Google can crawl it.
- If you have done both of these things and are still not able to verify your site, you may have entered your URL incorrectly. We recommend that you go back through the tutorial and redo the steps to make sure each part was done properly. Here is a link to the tutorial: Google Webmaster Tutorial.
