I am trying to verify my account. I keep getting asked to download a file shown below, but it doesn't allow me to download anything

 

1. Download this HTML file:googleeef41411638f88ef.html
 
Not sure what I am doing wrong. The hyperlink just won't open no matter what I try

trying a different browser may sometimes help.

 

verification is handled mainly via
the webmaster-tools-account --
websearch-console.

the verification methods are outlined here:
https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/35179

verification issues are best handled over in the webmaster-tools forum:
https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!categories/webmasters/verification

otherwise, a support specialist may be contacted directly:
https://support.google.com/merchants/contact/website_verification

after the site has been verified,
the site may be claimed using
the merchant-center-account.

You can do this manually, by creating a html file

Create a file with the name googleeef41411638f88ef.html
Than in the file you write

google-site-verification: googleeef41411638f88ef.html

Save the file and upload to the root of your domain

Please double check that the file name is still the same as sometimes it generates a new one.
