Site verification issues

Last Update: November 29, 2017

Verifying one of my sites is proving to be considerably more difficult than it is supposed to be - reading the Google forums, I don't appear to be alone.

Despite following instructions, as I understand them and using multiple methods, html file, meta tag etc, my site remains invisible to Google. Apparently it doesn't affect page ranking, so that's good, but means I can't see what is going on behind the scene.

Shown below is the sequence of events for the latest attempt this morning.

Am I missing something here? Site Support suggested the code should be entered using FTP, but as far as I am aware that is no different from copy and paste.

Any thoughts and contributions would be welcome.
