  4. Copy the Meta tag from the instructions box. We’ll use this later.
  5. Open a new tab in the browser and open the site you wish to verify.
  6. Press “More Actions” and click “Manage the Site” from the list.
  7. Click the General from the tabs which is located right under Site Setting tab.
  8. Now the Meta tag copied from the instructions box should be pasted in the place right next to Verification.
