Hello Richard,

Please can you paste your Google Webmaster metatag code here and the domain for which you're trying to verify? I can try to add this for you.

Hi Sanja this the metatag

My werbsite is www.evanslandscaping.co.uk

Google says the analytics is in the wrong place, I've put in the top of the page as suggested and it seems to be tracking put only getting a couple of visits a day, is this wrong or Have I inserted it in the right place I'm total new to websites so any advice would be really appreciated.

Hello Richard,

Your metagtag code did not seem to show up. Can you please wrap it using <!--your code goes in here-->

Thanks.

Hello Richard

I see that the code did not display again, but it appeared in the email alert we received:

<!-- <meta name="google-site-verification" content="spgTQR_ccRqW1w2UGJjDDBEkJOKQnRpE-B7rhtwi0pc" /> -->

When you add the code, you only need to add this bit: spgTQR_ccRqW1w2UGJjDDBEkJOKQnRpE-B7rhtwi0pc in the Google Webmaster tracking area.

To do this on your site...

  1. Open your site in the Sitebuilder.

  2. Click on Site > Site Settings > Google Webmaster (it is one of the icons in the bottom panel of the Site Settings screen)

  3. The Google Webmaster screen will open up. Paste the code into the field provided. See the screen shot below.

  4. Click on the X in the top right-hand corner to close the screen and return to your Sitebuilder.





I hope this helps! Let us know if you need any further assistance.
