I can not get my website to be secure with the green check mark. I need someone to walk me thru this step by step. The webmaster tools have not helped me.

Hi Pamela,

I am sorry to hear that you are having this issue. Please can you check the following:

1. Make sure that you have entered the proper code into the Google Webmaster field. You only need to enter the text that is between the " " and nothing else; it will look something like this: XlBMeWkrAxWIJtD5n3C3N8Zv09QKKl3R1MaoZnssKA0=
2. Make sure you clicked the yellow Update Site button after you entered the code. This will apply the change to your site so Google can crawl it.
3. If you have done both of these things and are still not able to verify your site, you may have entered your url in incorrectly. My suggestion would be to go back through the tutorial and redo the steps to make sure each part was done properly. Here is a link to the tutorial: Google Webmaster Tutorial -

If none of these suggestions solves your problem please let me know.
