    My site is using an Artisteer created theme and I can't get to the full html code to insert the necessary meta tag to verify my site with Google. Any suggestions?

    Might be eaiser for you to use the "upload html" file option to verify with Google.

    Found this in googles help section. It worked for me!

    1. Just go into your Administrator Dashboard.
    2. Under Appearance Section you may find the "Editor" - Click onto and go to index.php - like Main Index Template (index.php).
    3. Paste your meta tag above all of the sentences and update your changes. Example goes -
    <head>
    <meta name="google-site-verification" content="xxxxxxxxxxXXXXXXxxxxxxxxxx" />
    </head>
    <?php get_header(); ?>
    4. After those, you should 'verify' at Web Master Central.
