I tried to verify and claim my website with the HTML code that Google gave me but it wont work. I know its in the right spot on my website because I had to put in my Google Analytics code in too and that is working. I keep getting an error and I am not sure why. If I could get some help that would be great

verification and claim are separate steps.

if verification has already happened via google (e.g. analytics)
then, simply be certain that the same google-account (login)
is used to access the merchant-center -- there is usually no
need to verify the site again.

otherwise, verification actually happens under the google-webmasters-tools
account (the google-search-console) -- the google-webmaster-forums may
be consulted for more direct help with verification:

https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!categories/webmasters/verification

after verification has been completed, then, using the same google
account (login), simply claim the site within the merchant-center.

otherwise, google may be contacted directly:
