Google ownership failing


(kim) #1

I can not get google verification to work.
Google forum is no help.
Any ideas??
I’ve ran into a wall.

I’ve got it in my header like it requests.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When I have a look at the head content of your site I see this line:
<meta name="google-site-verification" content="google3f1852a2c08d5eff.html">

You may have your methods confused. I’m using the html file verification method which had me download a file named similar to your meta name google3f1852a2c08d5eff.html and place it in the root of my web site.

When I log onto my Google Search Console and look at changing my method to meta my line of code looks like this
<meta name="google-site-verification" content="dd61pw...just numbers and letters, lots of them" />

There is no google on the front nor does it end in html.

Maybe the easiest might be to change to html method, download the small file, google3f1852a2c08d5eff.html and upload it to your web site.
