Verify Your WordPress Site With Ease!
Seriously, this can be frustrating for individuals trying to verify their site ownership with affiliates, providers, and other programs. For this reason I have given a step by step tutorial on how to add your meta code with ease, on your terms, and immediately. Often times we are waiting for the developer or programmer to make these changes, as a programmer myself, I felt that this was a simple step that even the non-techie would appreciate.
Don’t be intimidated by small lines of code, don’t fret,.. you too can learn to run your WordPress site!
Firstly, make sure you are logged into your WordPress site, so you have access to the dashboard. I like to put my site ‘under construction’ every time I do updates, add plug ins, or alter it in any way. For example, my site is my profit machine, my storefront, so I make sure that whatever I do in the back end doesn’t affect the look and functionality of my site. I need to have is accessible to my students, community and viewers.
Many times a quick update within the theme or WordPress itself can cause it to act out, and believe me, when you are in the middle of a launch, or running courses, you don’t want your site down, or inaccessible for a long period of time, so be safe. Although this is a quick and simple step, it doesn’t hurt to be mindful.
So now that you are logged in, and have your construction page set/or not. Here are the next steps in verifying your site, and entering the meta code into your WordPress site.
1.) Go to ‘Appearances’ then to ‘Editor’
2.) Within ‘Editor’ go to the right hand column and choose ‘Header’
3.) Copy and Paste HTML tag within section on your WordPress site
Your Meta Code Here
4.) Click ‘Update’
5.) Then go to the original partnering site, refresh the ‘Verify Site’ button, and boom, you should be registered or verified.
As an digital entrepreneur, I run my websites, design and programming myself, I have learned to delegate when needed, but I really pride myself on being self-taught in programming, game design, and education technology. I really want you to thrive as you rise in business online. So with that said, I hope these quick and easy tips allowed you to register and verify your site so you can move forward with ease.
