I am not able to insert the code for tracking my webpages. Google tells me what the code is (several lines, head, body), but does not tell me HOW to do it. Someone please tell me how to do this. My site is not being tracked and I would like it to be. Thanks to anyone who responds.

In google webmaster tool what is the url of the site that has already been added?
Does it have the www or no www?
Usually you have to add both sites and verify both domain names and then configure it to use either the www or non www.
Best place to ask for help with webmaster tools/search console issues is on the Webmaster Central Help Forum

Hi @Constance L :-)
How do you usually make changes to the code on your website?
Do you have access to the code, or does your site host provide like an interface for making changes, or is it on a platform such as Wix, Weebly or some other platform?
WIth a few more details, one of us should be able to help you with this :-)

Thanks
Bronwyn

thank you for replying. First, I don't make any changes to my website
because I don't know how to do that. My site host does not provide a
interface. My site is www.constancesart.photos and it is hoasted by
Zenfolio. As for the code, I thought I was looking at the code provided by
Google.

Hi Constance :-)

From what i am to understand, you just need the tracking ID, not the whole piece of tracking script.
The tracking id gets entered into preferences in the Zenfolio interface.
There is a video here on youtube that will show you how
ive queued the video to start playing at the place in the video that is relevant to start watching

I watched the video, thanks. I did as instructed but then I clicked on the
webmaster tools in my Zenfolio account. Under Google webmaster tools it
says to sign in and add a site. Type address of my site. Click alternate
methods tab. Select Add a meta tag to my sites home page. Paste the code
here. The problem is when I went to the Google site to do this I clicked on
something and it showed me that I all ready have my site registered. But, I
know when I set it up I did not paste any script into my Zenfolio account
and the entry I'm looking at does not have anything for me to click on. I'm
talking about clicking on alternate methods tab and the next steps. Now,
there is something in the box to paste a code to. I don't know if it is
something Zenfolio did or not. Can you give me your thoughts?
