I have added a new domain name to my yola website with co.nr and want to add a webmasters code to my co.nr website so that it can be found on google, how do I put this webmasters code on to yola? (my website was originally on the yola sub domain before I transferred to co.nr and I added the webmasters code when I had my yola sub domain).

Hello Zeer70,

Here's a tutorial giving comprehensive instructions and a step by step guide for adding GA to your website.

Because it's a new site you can't use pre-existing Webmaster code to place on your site. You must register the site and verify ownership. Then place the code on your site.

I can't put the webmasters code on my co.nr (formly .yola sub domain) website because I used the webmasters code to put my formly .yola sub domain website up on to google.
What do I do now?

Hi Zeer70,

When you change the URL of your site, for example changing from a sub-domain to a custom domain you need to generate the Google Webmaster code again and add it to your site. Go to your Google Webmaster account, add in your sites new URL. Generate the code. Remove the old code that was on your site and add in your new code.

Let me know if you have any problems with this.
