Verify by Webmaster tools
I’ve tried to get my new site verified in Webmaster Tools – http://www.deadseamemories.com it;s a graphene siet with child theme. I already have an account with Adsense and Google Analytics and the site seems to be indexed.
I tried a couple of the available methods to verify by uploading the code into Graphene theme options/ advanced /head but am gettineg error messages
We weren’t able to verify your site: http://www.deadseamemories.com/
Verification failed. The Google Analytics tracking code on your site uses the traditional snippet. You can verify site ownership only with the asynchronous snippet placed in the <head> section of your home page
As far as I can see I was using the correct snippet using this method
I’m probably doing something stupid but just cant work it out.
Suggestions would be appreciated.

You are using a wrong code. Moreover you’re not putting the snippet in
<head>tag. Asynchronous GA snippet should be like this,
var _gaq = _gaq || ;
ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script'); s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
UA-XXXXXXXX-Xwith your tracking ID. You can get the whole snippet from Google Analytics dashboard.
Okay thanks for getting back to me. I’ve tried again to get this to work, I copied the snipped from Google Analytics and pasted it in
It still comes up with this message We weren’t able to verify your site: http://www.deadseamemories.com/
It also says Verification failed. The Google Analytics tracking code on your site uses the traditional snippet. You can verify site ownership only with the asynchronous snippet placed in the <head> section of your home page.
Now the tracking code I used looks like your example so I’m puzzled why this is happening

I still don’t see the Asynchronous GA script in your site. Did you clear WP-Super-Cache after adding the updated code to your site?
I’ve just cleared it now but still does not work. I had also tried to verify it both as http://www.deadseamemories.com and deadseamemories.com Would that have made a difference?
Also this site hosted by Hostgator is an addon site with http://www.writtentoorder as my main site – not sure if this makes any difference.

What did you actually put in the Gangrene Options –> Google Analytics or in Custom
<head>tag? Can you post a screenshot here?
Just got Wondows 8 and the’ve changed the way to do screenshot so I have just pasted info. I have taken out my Google Analytics UA number
Code to insert into the <head> element
var _gaq = _gaq || ;
ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’;
var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’); s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);

Where did you put the code? In Graphene Options > General > Google Analytics or in Graphene Options > Advanced > Custom head tags?

Put it in Graphene Options > General > Google Analytics. Then flush WP Super Cache.
