I tried verify my website on Goggle webmaster and it looks for meta tags or wants you to place a HTML code in the website to recognize it. It will not work and is having problems.

Page Rank did not even pick up key words.

What is the problem?

Thank you for trying to help. Just to clarify - Todd is trying to sign up for a service provided by Google that will help him attract traffic to his site. In order to do this he needs to demonstrate that he is the owner of the site. Google gives you two ways to do this: add some code (a metatag) to a specific place in your page, or upload a file. My explanation below explains how to add the code that will allow you to verify your site with Google Webmaster.

Sorry,
I was trying to verify my website with google and it was not successful. Google requested that I place a meta tag code or HTML code in my header so they could verify my site. I do not understand how to place this in my header. Does everyone need to verify their site like this with google?

Thank you

You only need to verify your site in this manner if you wish to make use of Google Webmaster tools. If you want to use this service, here is what you need to do:

After you sign up for a Google Webmaster account and type in your URL, here are the steps you should follow:
1) Select the meta tag verification option. Here is an example of what you will see:
<!-- <meta name="verify-v1" content="bHhqyg8xA3R4knMc+W1+W7+U0/Fy2EBT580Jbxdtx8I=" /> -->
2) Copy only the portion of the code that begins and ends as follows: bHhq...x8I=
3) In SynthaSite, click on the properties sidebar and paste that code in the specially designated "Google Webmaster" field. Do this for every page of your site that you want Google to track.
4) Republish your site and check back with Google Webmaster to make sure that it has been verified

If this does not work for you, please let me know.
