Hello Olga

I suggest that you read this tutorial on Google Webmaster as it shows you how you can submit a site map and get your site verified.

You may also find these tutorials on SEO to be very helpful as well:

Please let us know if you need any clarification along the way. =)

Hi Olga,

Can you please double check 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=

(This is just an example, please use your own code)

Hello garciaagraz,

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 yellow Update Site 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.

If you would like you can give us your url and we can take a look at the source code to see if it looks like the code has been entered properly, and go from there.

the meta tag you posted above, don't copy all of that.. ONLY what's in the quotations... this is EXACTLY what to enter into the google webmasters tag in the properties menu... vpzfeXASqWihfj/MsY4B3YOO9vmd4/ftrVXBbo4sRHE=

after adding that, publish the site, then go into webmasters and verify it. It WILL work or else webmasters made a mistake.
