Verification: HTML file

Verify your site by uploading an HTML file:

  1. On the Search Console Home page, click the Manage Site button next to the site you want, and then click Verify this site.
  2. If HTML file upload is not visible on the Recommended method tab, click the Alternate methods tab.
  3. Select HTML file upload, and follow the steps on your screen.
  4. Once the HTML file has been uploaded to the root of the website, click Verify.

We will verify that the file exists in the specified location. If we can't access the file, we'll give you information about the error we encountered. More information about HTML file verification errors.

Once this problem is resolved, try to verify your site again. Removing the file from your server can cause your site to become unverified, and you will need to go through the verification process again.
