Hello Angela

f 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 republished your site by clicking on the green "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.
4. You can also see this link on Google's Support Page: I tried to verify my site and I received an error. What can I do? for more information.

If none of these suggestions solves your problem please let us know.
