Hello, are you using an HTML widget to add the code? To insert their code into the page you have to copy the code and Paste it into an HTML widget. Just drag over an HTML widget from the Side bar under "Basic" and then paste in you code and click "Save" Then, save your website and then click "Publish to the web" No changes will be live on the internet until you update your site. Saving it is just a way to save the page but to get those changes on the internet you have to publish them.

If you have done these steps, could you post the following info:

- Your website URL

- The tracking code the gave you to put in your site

Hi, Pipsquad fx.

Do you mean Google Analytics or Google Webmaster?

If you mean the latter, if you are having trouble getting your site to verify there are a few reasons why this could be happening.

1. Make sure that you have entered the proper code into the Google Webmaster field. You only need to enter the text that is between the " " and nothing else; it will look something like this: XlBMeWkrAxWIJtD5n3C3N8Zv09QKKl3R1MaoZnssKA0
2. Make sure you clicked the "Publish to the web" button after you entered the code. This will apply the change to your site so Google can crawl it.
3. If you have done both of these things and are still not able to verify your site, you may have entered your URL in incorrectly. My suggestion would be to go back through the tutorial and redo the steps to make sure each part was done properly. Here is a link to the tutorial: Google Webmaster Tutorial.
