Verification and claiming web site

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I downloaded the HTML file. Made a new page in my web site. When I test it, it comes up. But when I push the verify and claim button....Verification failed - Your verification file has the wrong content.

Please help me so I can move forward in this process.

I have had a Google Merchant Dashboard since 2008.

But it looks like something has changed and I am having to start all over.

I would remove the current verification file. Then re-download the verification file and upload that to the root of your website.

My guess is something is wrong with the current verification file if the location of the file is on the root of the website.

Alternatively. You could use the meta tag for verification as well but personally I think the file verification is the better option.

You also say you made a new page in your website - you do not have to do this - simply upload the verification file as it is to the root folder on your server.
