I get on my blog, PoemsToShareFeelings every day just to change featured poems.  Well, yesterday the blog was all messed up and when I tried to turn on HTTPs, I got the error message "You have not been authorized to use this domain - please follow the settings instructions.  I've been trying to find understandable answers ever since.  I got to to my DNS page (have a copy too) but I just can't figure out what I am supposed to do on there - everything looks fine to me.  I need some step by step help - please.

 Hi again - I was following your directions - opened the link and I am already verified for my blog according to those records - so not sure why I have to "Add a property".  Not sure either why it says I'm not verified for my blog when I try to turn on HTML - I am verified.  I'm so confused.

Because my host is not listed among the Domain name providers, this was more complicated for me.

I get that same screen Louise posted on 5/10/21.  This was after help from my host &  I was able to get it to finally verify my domain BUT going back to Settings I still received the same rejection.  I'm told there can be a 24 hour delay in it being recognized.   The same thing happened on another blog I manage.

Hope that 24 hour delay is all I need.

To get this far I had to download a file from Google & post it to my blog.  I presume the numbers are unique to me or I'd list them.  After that I received a message saying I'm verified as the owner.  (Yeahrightsure!)  There were some ReCaptcha's along the way, too.

I have a third blog where I included Blogspot in the address.  That one went through easily ages ago.  It's just the blogs omitting it causing this problem.
