How to Upload Google Verification Code to website - concrete51 user found helpful
i'm trying to get my site verified by google. but not found proper path this CMS, so please anyone let me know how the process...
<meta name="google-site-verification" content="pvxhrOrOeU7C6jjpIdHip9bc8vcrPCvLJdTKRyFdOpg" />
Try adding it to the top by going to Tracking Codes section in the dashboard. It's under SEO and statistics.
Thank you very much, Will updated GWT code and success.
Assuming you are asking about the google analytics code then download the file from google and upload to the website root.
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!

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