On a few of my sites, I keep losing verification that I own the website in my Google search console. I have to go back and add the code to my site so Google will verify, again.

Hi BigMook. I've been experiencing something similar. Started on June 16th. That's the best I can tie it to. I'm using Yoast as well and had a ton of trouble making a few design changes on my site. Ever since then, GA is tracking my traffic. I have the code in Yoast and the header.php in a child theme. Still no luck. Don't know what's going on. Hope you get your problem sorted! Alanna

Did you add them into the head? Then it will be overwritten with every WP update.
You better verify them in the SEO all in one

Thanks, Loes. I think its because I use Yoast on those sites.

I don't know much about Yoast, I am not using that, Paul Goodwin is my Yoast expert, he might know what you are doing wrong

Here's the video for the Yoast SEO plugin.

Thanks, Marion... I appreciate this! :)

How are you doing the verification?

If you manually add it into the theme header.php then it will be deleted at every theme update.

You can use a plugin to avoid this, either AIl-in-One SEO which you've probably got installed, or Header Footer which allows you to force inject content into various areas of your website.

Thanks. That helps. On the sites that lose verification, I'm using Yoast, not All-in-one. That must be it. Thanks again Rich.

Just a heads up, I changed back from Yoast (premium) to All-in-One SEO (free) at the catastrophic 3.0 update, as have some other members and we are now seeing much better ranking results. I saw a lot of my page 2 and page 3 listings go to page 1. I've also found SEO Framework https://wordpress.org/plugins/autodescription/ gets better ranking results than even AIOSEO but it's less user-friendly at the moment. Yoast is actually the worst plugin in regards to ranking, most members like it because of the interactive feedback on content, but there are much better tools to help with that, for example WebTextTool. If you want to take a look at that, there is a free version, but they hide the signup gateway, it's at https://app.webtexttool.com/#/register-free ;)

Thanks for the heads up! I'll take a look at these. Much appreciated!

You're most welcome! :)
