Dear Community, 

 

we are trying already for months to synchronize our web store created in WIX.COM with google merchant. However, we are struggling with verification of the ownership of the website. WIX.COM provides a possibility to verify the ownership to third parties. However, when putting the (HTML google48612f3c8b07b51e.html. we get an error when confirming the upload. (pls. see following steps: https://merchants.google.com/mc/websiteverification?a=121007209)

 

Could you pls. help us how to properly verify the URL of our website. Any kind of help will be highly appreciated.  

 

Many thanks 

 

Sam

the best likely course is to first verify the
website using only the google-search-console:
https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/35179

if there are any issues with verifying the website within the
google-search-console, then the best likely course is to contact
wix support directly and also post the issue within google's
webmaster-central-help-forum:
https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!categories/webmasters/verification
https://support.wix.com/en/about-wix/contacting-wix-support

then, later, after the site has been verified,
using the google-search-console, simply claim
the website in the merchant-center-account.

 

otherwise, this is mainly a peer-to-peer forum -- forum-members

cannot look into any account or website details; posting, here in

public, the specific website url being verified and claimed, may

allow other forum-members to offer more specific suggestions.

 

otherwise, google may be contacted.

In Wix:

 

Manage Website > Tracking & Analytics > New Tool > Verification Code and use the meta tag code from Analytics that is one of the alternative methods.

 

This always works for me.
