    Default verifying site on google

    Can someone please advise where to put the meta tag to verify my site? Going mad here. I've tried every place I can think of but can't get the right place for the meta tag to go



    Last attempt was wrong - have no idea what to try next. SO grateful for any help - have tried this before and gave up but really need to get this working.



    Thanks.

    Click on a blank spot on the Master Border (near the top).

    Click on the HTML button on the Properties Palette.

    Then take a look at the attached.

    Thanks for that Garret. I think I did try that before but I keep getting a
    message saying 'not verified' 'it is the wrong place - it must be within the
    first <head> section of the page'? I've put it between head tags as I think
    your picture said. This html is very confusing! google don't seem to make it
    very clear or is it NOF? more likely, just me! Any further thoughts.

    Do you have a URL I could look at?

    NOF doesn't make working with the HTML terribly easy....

    Lorraine,
    Open your local published Index page in Notepad, insert the Google verify code between the <head> tags. Save it. Upload to server with 3rd party ftp app. Problem solved in 60 seconds.

    <head>

    Insert your Google Verify code here

    </head>


    NOTE: You should have only one set of <head> tags in your page.

    Nancy's exactly right (as usual ;-). However - be aware that if you do it
    this way & make a change to your page & republish, the Google stuff you
    added outside of NOF will get overwritten. Since this is likely a one time
    thing, that may not be an issue.

    Nof allows you to insert between <head> and </head>

    it always has, it is called between heads

    or am I misunderstanding something?

    A case where 2 heads is *not* better than one. <g>

    Of course NOF does do it. Lorraine was having problems - so (I believe)
    Nancy was just suggesting an alternative method.

    Hi

    Thanks everybody. I managed to sort the problem with your advice but I now
    have a '<' at the top of the page for some reason and my logo is slightly
    broken up on some of the horizontal menu links. Any idea what I've done
    wrong? I can delete the pages with the broken logo and redo them but how do
    I get rid of the '<'

    Have a URL?

    If you only have the pages locally, look where the < appears. For example,
    if it is just to the left of a line of text, it means that there's an extra
    < that the page thinks is part of the text.

    Usually, the easiest way to find it is to view the page in a browser & then
    "View Source" (in FireFox, that's the View Menu, then "Page Source") &
    search for the errant <.

    One guess: It was supposed to look like this in the code:

    <head>
    <Your line>
    </head>

    You might have:

    <head
    <Your line>>
    </head>

    Or something like that. Make sure the head & /head tags have the brackets
    around them.

    If you have a URL, I'll be happy to look
