Unable to claim & verify our website URL for Google Merchant to implement a Google Shopping Campaign

Dear Support and Forum Friends,

 

Our website is hosted at  Wix.com our domain is regiestered with Goddady. 

 

So far I have tried:

 1. HTML file upload, I upload the HTML file as code on the home page however I have no access the source code. So this attempt fails everytime I try it.

 

 2. HTML tag, Again no access to source code which is why I think this is not working either.  
 

 3. I have Google analytics programmed on Wix for this url, and still when attempting to verify, verification fails.

 

 4. Google Tag Manager, again no access to source, attempt fails.

 

I called Google Adwords support they referred me to the same article I have been reading and applying. Then, as I went on telling the Google Adwords Rep that I have tried it all on the support articles, he referred me to this forum. 

 

Hopefully I can get this resolved today, I have been trying to do this verification for the past 2 weeks with no luck. The domain and hosting is mine, any help will be greatly appreciated.

 

Regards,

 

Juan Castellanos

There isn't a tab at the top with other methods?

Have you tried these steps for adding the HTML tag?

Hi,

Is another option given to you adding a record to the domain name?

In Wix, if you look at a page and "view HTML" can you insert the tag there?

Ok yes I see an option to modify DNS Records on both on Godaddy and Wix.

What should I do there ?

In the validation methods for your site, was there one that was something like "add a DNS record"?

No Sir only these four methods are available:
1. HTML file upload.
2. HTML tag.
3. Google analytics.
4. Google Tag Manager.
