Hi,

Try adding it to the top by going to Tracking Codes section in the dashboard. It's under SEO and statistics.

Hi,

Assuming you are asking about the google analytics code then download the file from google and upload to the website root.

Hey,
Its easy !!!

Instead of using the file verification method, use their HTML tag.

Go to your Home page | Properties | Custom Attributes and add the Header Extra Content page attribute.

Paste the HTML into that field, it should look something like this:

<meta name="verify-v1" content="some-random-string" />


Save and you should be able to verify!

Thanks,

Hi there,

I just tried the method you described, and I still get a failure notice from Google when trying to verify my site.

Have I placed the tag in the right place?

Thanks!

You placed it correctly but you might want to empty concrete5's cache and then reload your page and check that meta tag appears in the page's source code

Thanks so much for your reply!

I tried to clear the cache and place the tag under Attributes > Header > Extra Header Content.

But, when I looked at the source code, it is showing above the <head> tag.

Is there something else you can think of that I can try?

Thanks again!

HI,

It would seem you have resolved this now.
When I inspect the web page it is showing to be n the correct place.

Are you seeing this?

Hi Martyn,

That's so strange! I see my opening <head> in line 66 of the source code, but the google site verification file is showing on line 63. I still receive the "failure to verify" message in search console, even after clearing my browser's cache (Chrome) and shutting down and restarting my computer.

Do you think the next best solution would be to upload the verification file to the root directory of the website?

Thanks,
Cindy

Hi Cindy

This is what I see below.

What I do when making changes and using chrome is to clear the browser caches as well. If you have an inspection open from inside chrome then you can do an "empty cache and hard reload"

My friend Tim does make an interesting point, my comment from below is connected to
http://www.unioncountync.gov/, but looking athttp://co.union.nc.us/ it does seem to me to also be ok, Which website are you working on?

Which website are we talking about?
There is no website mentioned in this thread and the website from your public profile (https://www.giveyoulead.com/) is a Wordpress website.

Ok I found it through keywords in your screenshot:http://co.union.nc.us/

Something is very wrong with that site, you have lots of scripts and indeed your verification tag that are displayed well before the opening <head> tag.

I think you need to correct your theme's files

Thanks. I'm new to Union County so I've reached out to the person who initially created the site to see if she can provide some insight. I'm sure her context will be very valuable in troubleshooting!

In the meantime, I appreciate you taking a look, and I will update my profile to be more accurate (I'm not sure where giveyoulead.com came from!).

@FaganSystems
The source code you are looking at is not the real source code for that page.

First, those foundation-mq-xx class elements do not appear in the source code unless you look at it in the browser's developer tool. So my guess is they are added by JS.

Second, the code you are looking at in the browser's developer tool is rearranged by the browser to correct it so it looks normal.

Instead, click on the page and click on "View Page Source" and you will see the actual source which is totally wrong with even the <title> element outside of the head.

I just wanted to say thanks again for taking a look. With the upcoming holiday, I may not hear from the original developer for a few days. But if/when we get it resolved, I'll post again.

Cheers!

Just a quick note to let you know that I was able to get this issue resolved by working with the developer to add the tag to the header.php file. The site is now verified and I can begin using search console. Thanks again for all of your help!
