Hello Sarah,
I think I might know what the problem is. When you went through the verification process did you enter your domain name as http://mysite.com or as http://www.mysite.com? Notice one of them has the www and one does not.

Yola gives you the option to choose your primary domain as either the www version or the non www version. Whichever one you have chosen as your primary is how you need to enter it in Google Webmaster.

Can you go into your Google Webmaster account and make sure you are trying to verify your domain as whatever you have chosen as your primary. If you find that you are trying to verify the non primary domain, you can just delete it and start fresh.

Please let me know how this goes for you and if you continue to have trouble with the verification process.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

HI Emmy

Well i checked on what you have just given me, i did put my site in as www. and so deleted it. The i went to add a site and entered just dragonfly-nails.co.uk then pasted the code again. again it is saying that my meta tag is incorrect although it has found it.

Does this mean i need tro wait a day or 2 for google to realise it is there ?? or does this usually happen straight away ?>?

Hmmm, did you re-publish your site? Can you tell me your domain name and I'll take a look at it.

Hi Sarah,
Can you email me at support@yola.com and I can assist you further from there. Might need to look into this a bit closer.

Thanks,
Emmy
