My google analytics is all sorted; and I thought by Webmaster Tools was too. (It’s been working for about 1-1/2 years). I hadn’t checked it in a month or two, and I found, today, that the site was no longer verified.
I’m not sure why.
So one of the ways in which you can apparently verify a site is to drop in a bit of code via an .html file into your main directory: e.g. “mysite.com” folder
So I did so, and when I went through the verification process, I was greeted with this message:
I used the webftp to u/l the google .html file to the main directory, though the directory was simply called mysite.com rather than www.mysite.com
Don’t know if this distinction between mysite.com and www.mysite.com is is a factor or not?
I tried every alternate method and they either didn’t work (like going through google analytics – apparently because I’m not using the asynchronous method - from what I understand this is an updated Analytics standard? And maybe when my google analytics was set up, I didn’t have this method?) or because I’m just ignorant of how to do it, I suppose.
Any suggestions on how to proceed? Anyone know what I’m (probably) doing wrong?
PS. One of the alternate ways to verify a site is to modify the “DNS Record”. But I don’t know what that is or where it is.
