Not sure if this is the correct forum to post but I would be grateful for some help.


I cannot verify my property in Google Search console. I've tried the text record and CNAME method and neither work.


There is an option to select a domain name provider at the top of the page however mine is a small outfit based in the UK however it defaults back to my CMS which is after I try to verify it. I cannot verify it with Google Analytics as it returns a message code looks malformed. I am not able to add code to my site.


Any suggestions?

Hello John Paul,

I'm not sure there is a "correct forum" for a google search console question but happy to help.

The easiest method I've found is to the use meta tag. Just place it in the header of your homepage and voila!

Let me know if that helps.
