Hello, I am trying to get my site indexed on Google and I am having trouble getting it verified. I just cannot figure out where/how to place the meta tag! I have tried uploading it to the files, placing it in the CSS....I feel quite lost and kind of silly, lol. I don't know why I can't do this....I am quite new to all this but can usually figure it out by trial and error. Can you help me?? : )

Hi Teena Brown,

To verify your site with Google Webmaster you need to use the meta tag option. It is very important that you copy the correct portion of the tag in order to be successful. Copy only the letter/number string between the quotation marks and paste it in the designated field by going to Site > Site Properties.

For detailed, step-by-step, instructions on how to verify your site with Google Webmaster and submit a sitemap, please see our Google Webmaster Tutorial. Please use our instructions and not Google's. Google's are written on the assumption that you are coding the website from scratch. Our instructions are written to work specifically with Yola.

I hope this helps.
