I watched setting up google search console by kyle

When I went into my theme editor to add the code in the header section - I couldn't find the The Theme Header in the Theme file section. I am using a genesis pro theme. I just don't where to look for the header section

Thanks for your input

Hey Richard,

If you are adding a link that only needs to be included briefly you could add it to your theme's header.php file.

However, codes like Google verification and tracking NEEDS to remain ON your website, so you should be using the following for those types of codes: Theme header.php files become overwritten with EACH and EVERY update your theme goes through, which would remove ANY additional coding that you may add to their header file.

Hope your find this helpful.

thanks for your support

I followed Kyles video and Jays but I am no nearer to getting my site verified. I got stuck with the Header as my website is not wordpress but a Genesis Pro so I could not find the header section. i am at a total loss what to do but i wont give up yet nor will I grab the whiskey bottle !!!

It was so much easier with the webmaster tool, I am using the Genesis Pro design the theme files are totally different. I cant find the header section. As you can see my theme files are totally different to Kyles Video because i am using Genesis pro

Hi
Can you refresh and clear your website cache?
You can find this under site manager, click the details of the website you are using and then scroll to Site plus ➕.
You will see the cache there
Clear it and go back to Google and try to validate

When I just started, I was very frustrated because I could not set up Google console
Now, I am confident in doing so

You said the main problem was adding the code into your website?

I add my code in AIOSEO. I clicked general settings and then webmaster tools

You will then see Googke Console logo
Click it and below there will be a space for you to put your code in
Do so and then click save

I always refresh my screen and then ho back to Google console website to validate.
It should go through OK.
Let me know if this helps and how you get on.
