Question Can someone Help me about GWTs

Hi,

Can someone give me step-by-step instructions on how to add the Google Webmaster tools code to the site if it's a word press site.

The sites are added to google webmaster tools, but I don't know where the code goes on the site to verify it.

Thanks
Mech

Install All in One SEO or Yoast SEO plugin from directory. There you will find the area to put the code. Sweet!

Instead of using a plugin that adds the code to all pages (which is not required) just upload the html page they give you to the root of your website.

Quote:
Verify your site by uploading an HTML file:
1.On the Search Console Home page, click the Manage Site button next to the site you want, and then click Verify this site.
2.If HTML file upload is not visible on the Recommended method tab, click the Alternate methods tab.
3.Select HTML file upload, and follow the steps on your screen.
4.Once the HTML file has been uploaded to the root of the website, click Verify.
Verification: HTML file - Google Search Console Help

The same method can be used to verify Bing's Webmaster Tools: Verify Ownership of Your Website - Bing webmaster help & how-to

Hi,

Three simple ways to add Google Webmaster tool code in the website:

1) Adding through Meta tag: Select the Alternative Method option where you will get Meta tag verification code in WMT. Copy that code, now go to Header.php page in your wordpress website and past that code in the <Header> section and upload the file. After upload completion go to Google WMT and verify the code. (Before making any changes to the header.php file must take a backup first.)

2) Adding trough Wordpress Plugin: If you are using any SEO plugin for your website, It will allow you to add Google WMT verification code. Simply add the code to the space given on the section and save the page. After saving the page go to Google WMT and verify the code.

3) Through FTP: If you have FTP available to your wordpress website, Download the HTML Code snippet from Google WMT and upload the HTML file in the root of the website through FTP. After uploading the script in the FTP go to Google WMT and verify the code.

Hope any of the step will solve your issue.

There are so many ways the simplest way is to install Google analytics code either through code editor or the wordpress plugin and then use the method of verifying through analytics and your website will get verified in GWT.
