I still don't know how you copy and paste and go to another page and copy and paste. But there where other ways on her page than that one. One was sign in to your domain name provider- that sounds easier. Do you know how to find out how many people looked at your site?

whilst watching this training I spotted the box for Pinterest. Filled in the same way as for webmaster and within an hour I was verified. Much easier than the previous training about changing the page in wordpress editor and a lot less risky.

to help others, would you consider redoing this with pinterest in mind?

I have just got the email through from google search console and they are recommending choosing how i prefer my site to appear e.g.: with or without www. - is there any advantage to either?
Reply
MarionBlack Premium
For reasons of their own Google wants us to verify all 4 versions of our websites.
http://
https://
http://www
https://www

I like to keep it clean so my choice of version is with the s and without the www.

Once you've chosen your preferred version you'll want to only use that version when you "Fetch as Google".

This is by far the quickest way but it's not as permanent as uploading the HTML file. If you abandon the plugin then you'll need to reverify.

Hi Marion,

I just watched your training, that I stumbled upon by accident (or luck perhaps?) :-)

It is easy to follow - thank you.
However, while it explains HOW to do it, I am left wondering WHY we have to do this on our site. Can you tell me a bit about that?

Thanks! I just gave this out on a thread of people struggling to do it manually with the theme editor.
Reply
MarionBlack Premium
Thank you. The editor method gets overwritten when the theme gets updated or changed. And if not done properly can wreck a website.
Reply
Foobard Premium
Yes. Anyone making changes to their theme files needs to log all changes in a file so they can recreate it if the theme updates or there is a disaster and you have to rebuild your site from backup. It's far easier and simpler to use a plugin that is already installed, like All-in-one-SEO.

Marion, somehow Google search console now says my site isn't verified. I'm using your tutorial (as I had forgotten how to do this) and lost you at pasting the code into Notebook. This may sound elementary but how do I click on Notebook? I can't find it anywhere.
Thank you in advance,
Karen
Reply
MarionBlack Premium
It's Notepad not Notebook. It's a text editor. Depending on what system your computer is running on you'll find it (or something similar) by typing 'notepad' and 'whatever your operating system is' into Google search. e.g. 'notepad windows 10' or 'notepad mac'

The section of code that you want is the part between the quotation marks. Make sure there are no spaces before or after and that you don't include the quotation marks.

the code I copied had no quotation marks. I don't know if I should post it publicly.

MarionBlack Premium
Try again and take a screenshot of what you're pasting into Search Console. If you don't want to display that publicly (it's just a series of letters and numbers) then send me the screenshot via Private Message from my profile page. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/marionblack

spatz007 Premium
It's in your PM
Reply
MarionBlack Premium
OK now we're getting somewhere. The info you've pasted into the verification box is the name of the HTML file which you would upload via FTP if you were not using the plugin.

You've missed a step, so go back to Search Console and select the tab for Alternate Methods and then click on HTML tag (as in the video). The code you'll get between the quotation marks is the code you need for the plugin.

Great question Mari-elle. It continues to work while the SEO plugin is active. So theme updates would have no effect. I think that if you change your SEO plugin to Yoast the settings get transferred. But I haven't put it to the test yet.

Thank you once again for saving me from pulling out what hair I have left. Both my Google Analytics and Bing accounts have been screwy due to the change to https.
Your program, as always, made the steps to correct those addresses easy to understand and follow along with. I now believe I'm square with both analytics programs. (I hope, anyway).
Thank you again. Your programs are the ones I trust most.

Google want you to add http://yourwebsite.com and httpS://yourwebsite.com and http://WWW.yourwebsite.com and httpS://WWW.yourwebsite.com (if you have an SSL certificate).

Good question. I didn't see that myself. If you can find it again can you send me the link?

What about setting the preferred domain? Leave it defaulted o no or choose one of the display methods?

My preferred domain is with https and without www. It makes for a shorter link.

Still trying - now I'm getting "The connection to your server timed out. " As in, two seconds. Banging head on wall. Have to go to work now...

Thank you! I slept on it and tried again - "We were unable to connect to your server." That means WA server? Your video is perfectly clear however. I will try this on my windows computer, sometimes that makes a difference.....And no that did not work. Google cannot connect wit this server it seems. I have the same problem with a site hosted at Hostgator. Scratching head...

Ahhhhh, I was banging my head against the wall for a week trying all sorts of nonsense to get verified. Thank you so much!

The best thing about banging your head against the wall is the relief when you stop. You're very welcome.

Two days for me. A lot of these videos and lessons are out dated and I have to guess what is being referred to when the names of the tools/whatever have been changed years ago.

Your procedure seemed very straight forward until I tried to get on Google Webmaster Tools. The screen did not look like your video. But it had my site referenced up in the right hand corner with a red verify button. I clicked it and got a Google message with a big green check that said ... Congratulations, you have successfully verified your ownership of http://www.fullswinggroove.com/.

You think that means I'm verified without making the entries in AIO SEO?

MarionBlack Premium
You must have done it one way or another because Google Search Console says you're verified. Did you use FTP or another method before?
Reply
NWTDennis Premium
I was following your procedure here, but the Search Console didn't look like the screen above (No Add Property window). I got a brief screen I descibe above.

Google is changing as we speak (RE: Craig's post > https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/labman/blog/have-you-noticed-google). Maybe what found is a very recent change.

Thank you for the help.

Hi Marion,
Been trying to verify my site. I add property then it shows my site twice. I've put in the code like you've shown and it says verification failed. Don't know what I'm doing wrong. Any suggestions?

Hi Judy,
If you can't verify using All In One SEO then perhaps you could try Yoast instead.

Great! Which plugin do you use?
Reply
krazykat Premium
I think this might be a trick question ;)
I have seen so much discussion on which is better, and it appears both Yoast and All in One do the same job. All in One is where I will stay...until I have problems and/or am convinced otherwise.

Hi Marion,

I followed your video, it was very clear...
(I had already the HTML in my root, but I always got errors when he wants to reverify, cause then he want to use the meta tag... Therefore, I verified it both ways now... )

Grtz,
Bert

Sweet! I've always used FTP but I know that some people are a little wary of technology and prefer to use the plugins.
Reply
AngelsBird Premium
I also prefer FTP, but I don't understand the re-verification on the meta tag... Is it possible that the TAG manager (where I have deleted my settings) has something to do with it? Now I really think about it.. ;-)
