I cannot verify my Yola site with Google. Yola's tutorial speaks of a completely different Google Apps dialogue from the one I'm encountering! None of the alternative methods I AM finding on Goole Apps are working for me. The Help threads on Yola have links to online tutorials which open up at the Yola homepage! I am stumped. Can someone please tell me how I can verify my Yola site with Google? Thank you.

Hey!

Many thanks for your reply.

I'm afraid I can't find where this 'Yola Webmaster Code' can be found, to which you advise I should add the Google Verification Code. Is it in the 'Advanced Settings' of the 'Your Domains' page on Yola?

And you say I should 'just add numbers'. Do you mean that I should delete any letters or symbols contained within the Google Verification Code before I paste it?

Many thanks again for your help!

Hello Mick,

You can add the Meta tag option to your "Site Tracking Code" (Second button form the bottom in the above image)

You add it in the "Head" section and make sure you have the whole code eg:( )

Then update your site and you will be able to verify.

I hope this helps.

Hey everyone!

You're both very kind to try and help me out.

Safi: Thanks for those pictures! I followed those instructions but verification still failed! It said my tag wasn't formatted correctly, but I just copied and pasted it. Is there something I need to do to it for it to work?

Jeremy: Thanks for that! I followed those instructions and it all seemed to make great sense! Unfortunately, the option to add a tag to the Site Tracking Code is only open to me if I upgrade my Yola account! Which I may do. But maybe not if Yola keeps confounding me like this! I never have such issues with Google Sites.

Many thanks again to all!

Wait! I did it!

I forgot to extract only the numeric figures from the Meta Tag before cutting and pasting into Site Properties. Now I've done it and I'm finally progressing!

Many thanks to Safi and Jeremy for helping me out today. MUCH appreciated!

Be well, all!
