    My problem is the is the Google verification code that appears on the header of my blog. I got verified a week ago and just realized people have been seeing my verification code at the header section. What can I do to get rid of it?

    Hi seecloud

    Your Google Verification Code looks wrong?

    It should look something like this
    <meta name="google-site-verification" content="AbCdEfGhIKlljUnHbv....." />

    I would go back ad re copy the whole code including the <meta..../>
    Hope that makes sense?

    Yes it made sense Jonpedlow. I copied and pasted the meta tag just after <head> but can't verify the site. Whenever i try, i get this: We weren't able to verify your site: http://www.seeclouds.com/

    Ok, try going into your Google Analytics to where you got the verification code from.

    Then click on "Alternative Method" and check "Google Analytics - Use your Google Analytics account"

    Hopefully that should work, then you can remove that one line of verification code from your header.

    You made it look so simple Jonpedlow. I appreciate your help. It's now verified. Thank you
