I currently have a logo design that my husband has drawn, but I’m wanting someone to put it on the computer, even the lines out and perfect it to where I can add it to my

This is going to depend on how complicated your image is and how versed you are in graphic design. If you are decent with images then a program like Gimp https://www.gimp.org/, which is a free program that is akin to photo shop could work. If you aren't good at that sort of thing, I agree with the others, get on fiverr and hire someone.

Thanks. 🙂

A site like Fiverr will have plenty of people who could quickly and affordably do this for you if you don't want to spend the time learning how to use various image manipulation/graphics software.

Make sure you look at reviews and samples of their work before choosing someone.

Otherwise, GIMP 2 is an excellent (free) programme with 1,000s of tutorials available - my preferred choice.

Others I use include Krita and Inkscape.

Thanks for the recommendations. 🙂

You're welcome 😀 let me know how you get on.

There are a few things to keep in mind when designing a logo. The most important is that your logo should be easy to remember and distinctive.
You also want to make sure that it's versatile enough to be used in a variety of contexts, from print to digital media.

Canva is an online design platform that makes it easy for anyone to create professional-looking logos.
You can choose from a library of built-in templates and tools, or you can upload your own images and fonts.
Canva also offers free online courses that can teach you the basics of logo design.

I didn't see where you could upload images on there. I will have to look into that further; thanks.

🤔 I wonder if you can upload it on Canva some how, Cynthia! Just a thought!

Jeff

I have it uploaded to my computer. The perfecting part is what I can't do. 😕

Either Paint 3D or Canva. I use Paint 3D. Do you own a PC? If so, I can help you. If it is an Apple, I can't assist!

Jeff

I have paint 3D. I just don't have the talent to create exactly what I want.

That's fine, Cynthia! I guess a Freelancer might be the best option then.

Jeff

Try pulling up the paint app, and drawing app in the window section on your computer this might help. then you can have someone draw it over and save it to your files.

Yes, I do have that, but I need more definition that what I can get out of that. I did try it though.

No matter how many times I try, or how many help instructions I read, I cannot get my website verified with Google Analytics. I've done it before, but I know it's changed now.

Pleased to meet you Cynthia & wish you the best with WA in 2022 & beyond..

Thank you. 🙂

If you're totally stuck and can't find a YT video to solve this, I'd suggest reaching out to SiteSupport. They are lifesavers. Hope it works out for you.

This may be my only resort; thank you.

i tend to use ad inserter ( the head section of it)
and add the whole code in there
you don't verify on analytics anymore but can use
http://gachecker.com
to verify that the code is in there...
then for search console i tend to add it to ad inserter as well and then verify...the html tag...
or use a file manager plugin and add the html file to my site...
either works and can be done in minutes... and let me know how it goes

I have the property added in my Google Analytics account, I just can't verify it. Your other suggestion looks to be the start to a entire new process.

What I want is to simply get the code to work properly in my website, which I cannot do.

You said you haven't used what Phil suggested, then did you download and install a file from you Google Analytics account that is to be uploaded using FTP access?

google doesnt verify your analytics code nowadays, as i said...
have you tried gachecker.com and looked for the global site tag column ticked...
if it is then you are ok woth analytics...
the second training was if you had setup your analytics and needed to find the code again...it goes through where to find it...
whay is the url of your site...

No, I did not need that when I did it before. Have things changed that much?

it is an alternative way, and always has been of adding the code to your site...
but you can use a file manager plugin rather than filezilla....

Ok, I did that and I received all red X's.

I cannot add the Google analytics tag to my site.

Not wanting to confuse you Cynthia, I will leave you with the following guide by Google:
https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/9008080?hl=en

...and the forum chat: https://support.google.com/webmasters/thread/2985254/i-can-t-verify-my-website-with-google-search-console?hl=en

Those are the instructions that I've tried. For some reason, I cannot get them to work.

Did you read through the comments in the forum too? Sometimes there's a nugget in those.

Thanks

slow down and follow the instructions for adding it via ad inserter and you will be fine...
hopping between methods you will keep getting confused...
if it is showing all red x's then it is not inserted correctly...
take a break and come back to it tomorrow...
it should only take a couple of minutes.....

Yes, I never had problems before. The thing is I've been trying for at least 3 weeks now. I do appreciate your help.

I simply cannot get the code inserted properly no matter what I do.

See if SiteSupport can assist you with this issue Cynthia.
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support
I'm sure they can discover the hiccup. Then I'd love it if you come back here and let us all know.

You've got me curious too now.

ok, so copy the whole of the code that google gives you as the ga4 html tag...
goto your site and install and activate ad inserter plugin
click on settings in the left sidebar of your site and select ad inserter
click on the gear symbol at the end of the numbers
and then on the header tab...
paste the google code into the black box and then click on the button to turn the middle green...
then on save settings...
and as long as you don't have a massive cache on your site it will update...
and you can goto gachecker and test whether you have installed your analytics....
and this was done while typing this post on a site that didn't have analytics done...
as i used a code for another site i removed it and got all x's on gachecker...

Site support got it fixed for me; I was entering the code in the wrong place. I sure appreciate all the help here though, thank you.🙂

Which SEO plugin are you using?

I'm using All in One SEO

AIO SEO > General Settings > Webmaster tools tab > Add the “whole code” to the miscellaneous verification section and save changes.

Then I go here http://gachecker.com/ verify my tracking code is working.

Tutorials

Site support actually helped me with the account I was having problems with. When I was in Google analytics though I noticed one of my other sites was no longer working, maybe from transferring it over here from another host? Anyway, your instructions above got me back on that sight, and made it very easy, so thank you. 🙂

No worries, but I am happy you got it all figured out.

Cynthia,
Abie pretty much has this covered below.
I transferred a dot com to WA and with the right ns codes and a little help from site support it was a doddle. Took about an hour of my time and then just waiting for servers to update and job done.
Bux

Site support was quick to answer my question, and gave me step-by-step instructions on how to do this. I was worried about losing my content, but it looks like they have that covered as well.

I'm VERY grateful for their help.🙂
