Hello Connor,
When you verify your site with Google Webmaster and Yola you need to use the meta tag option. We have a tutorial that will step you through this process here: Verifying your site with Google Webmaster. Can you give this a try and let us know if you have any trouble with the steps.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Hi Connor,
Aww, I hate to hear you say that about yourself, I hope you say it in jest!

If you have the meta tag from Google Webmaster, back in your Sitebuilder click on the down arrow of the "Site" button:



You can then paste the meta tag into the very bottom field, Google Webmaster:



Please let me know how this goes for you and if you have any trouble.
