    Hello everyone,

    I can't figure out how to upload the Google HTML verification code to my WordPress website.

    If someone could provide me with a step-by-step guide, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanking you in advance,

    Basically you need to generate the verification HTML file and upload it (via FTP of SFTP) to the root folder of you website. More details here: http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=35658

    And the instructions from there:

    1. Download this HTML verification file. [googlexxxxxxxxxxxxxx.html]

    2. Upload the file to http://xxxxx.com/

    3. Confirm successful upload by visiting http://xxxx.com/googlexxxxxxxxxxxxxx.html in your browser.

    Thanks Andrew and jgs. I'll install the plugin that you recommended Andrew and try it that way.

    In my cpanel, I uploaded the file to Public_html directory but still doesn't see it to verify.

    Code:

    Thank you!
