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,

    <script type="text/javascript">

    var _gaq = _gaq || [];
    _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-XXXXXXXX-X']);
    _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);

    (function() {
    var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;
    ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
    var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
    })();

    </script>

    Replace UA-XXXXXXXX-X with 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

    options/advanced/custom<head> tags.

    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

    <script type=”text/javascript”>

    var _gaq = _gaq || [];

    _gaq.push();

    _gaq.push();

    (function() {

    var ga = document.createElement(‘script’); ga.type = ‘text/javascript’; ga.async = true;

    ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’;

    var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);

    })();

    </script>>

    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.
