    Add the line to your theme's header.php file just before the </head> tag.

    I have been trying to do the same (add meta tag to verify ownership). I add the code to my header.php file before the </head> tag, update file, and attempt to verify, and google says that they can't find the code every time. What could I be doing wrong?

    PHP google site verification
    @esmi, can you please give an example where should I add it in my header tag

  8. Ptoone,
    I put the code you posted on pastebin: http://pastebin.com/3gahKrTV . The mods will delete it from your post because it is not enclosed in backticks

    Something is adding this to your html:
    <meta name="<meta name=\"google-site-verification\" content=\"zEx0Fuyn3PpUd6qNPvunJfVB8mpJrnkg85nz3r7dA78\" />" content="" />

    Then a few lines under it is there again but without errors. Are you adding the google verification through a plugin?

    Also your header php has a bunch of code errors see here:
