I followed the steps on my yola "" website. It is published, and I have the URL ( Now, i am stuck on "Verify your site with Google Webmaster and submit a sitemap". I've tried to verify it but I couldn't get it to verify in Google Webmaster. It said, " Verification failed for using the HTML file method. Your verification file was not found."
So i decided to try the "Alternate methods" , I picked "Add a DNS record to my domain's configuration". My domain registrar/provider is with I followed the exact steps of "A TXT record is an entry within the Domain Name System (DNS) that provides supplemental information about my domain (" I copied and pasted the Unique Security token "google-site-verification=7zNN_5tLVwFZtAHvRQxpwEFVesKzClpn8dfIf_KkEtw" and I still couldn't get the google webmaster to verify my domain name. I also called to make sure that I was doing it correctly. Their end was perfectly fine, meaning the domain is up, running and correct.
How long does it take for the Google to be verify?
I need help to get it to verify and be notice on the google website. Just want to make sure I am doing it correctly and what to do next if there is a mistaken or error.

Thank you.
