Verifying your Zeald website's ownership on Google Search Console

Google Search Console is a free web service provided by Google.  This tool lets webmasters monitor and maintain your site's presence in Google.  However, before you can use the Google Search Console tool, you need to add and verify your website first.

To verify your website, follow the instructions below: 
  1. Log in to your Search Console account.  
  2. Click Add a Property.
  3. Enter the URL of the website you would like to add, then select Website on the drop-down menu.  Click Add once done. 
  4. Click Alternative methods.  
  5. Select HTML tag.  
  6. Copy the entire meta tag.  DO NOT CLICK VERIFY YET.  The meta tag needs to be added to your website's home page.
  7. Go to your website's dashboard, then click PREFERENCES > General > Content.  
  8. Paste the meta tag on the Extra HTML tags for document head tag (eg meta tags) field then save the changes.  
  9. Once the code has been inserted on your website's home page, you can verify your website on the Search Console.
