Hi, 

 

I'm testing out the business site in Google My Business. Is there a way to verify in search console? 

Thanks,

Kyle

UPDATE: Verified using Google Analytics.

I have the same question. I've spent countless hours searching the community for an answer. I can't get my *.business.site added as a property on Search Console. I have added it as a property to Google Analytics, but when I go to my website, *.business.site, it states no tags found. Following the informational link indicates:

 

Add Google Analytics.

We have detected that there is no Google Analytics tracking code found on this page.
Failing to have Google Analytics tracking code on this page will prevent data from this particular page from associating to your Analytics account.
Solution: Ensure that you add the Google Analytics tracking code onto this page before the closing tag.
 
So now I'm perplexed as to how to reconcile since *.business.site only allows basic editing (photos, font, theme) and does not allow editing of code, file upload, or insertion of tags.  :/
 
Let me know if you find an answer. I'm desperate for one.

It might be worth clearing your cache and cookies and trying again. The site may not have activated Google Analytics, or it may be cached without Google Analytics. Tough to say without looking at your site. 

I was able to verify my site with Google Analytics and it went the first time.

I'm not sure how you managed to verify the .business.site, did you really???

 

There's no access to the Head section of the .business.site where you would usually add the UA Tracking Code or Global Site Tag snippet to enable you to verify or add a site to Google Search Console - this was also the case with the old version of Google.Sites

Perhaps @keepkalm is thinking of verified as when you claim a business as a business owner. Although I was not able to verify my .business.site in Google Analytics, my .business.site still shows the verified shield and check mark logo (which I assume means a verified/claimed business owner).  

 

Thankfully, my .business.site seems to be performing well based on the "Insights" data.
