How to verify your site in Google Search Console (formally Google Webmaster Tools)

Once your site is live, log into your Google Search Console account.

Make sure you log in with a Google account. Usually these are emails that end in but if your company is using google apps they might end with your company's domain name.

Look to the right of your site and click the “Manage property” dropdown:

Verify your site by adding a meta tag

  1. On the Webmaster Tools Home page, click the Manage Site button next to the site you want, and then click Verify this site.
  2. If HTML tag is not visible on the Recommended method tab, click the Alternate methods tab.
  3. Select HTML tag, and follow the steps on your screen.
  4. Please send us this tag in an email and we will add it to your site.

If the site does not verify immediately, wait a couple hours and try again. There could be a delay on Google's end on the verification.
