How to add Google meta verification to Joomla

Easy. Simply sign up for Google Webmaster Tools, and choose the meta tag verification option.  Google will then generate a custom meta tag that you need to embed in the template of your Joomla site.

If you use multiple templates, you should add this code to all templates and upload.

We prefer to make these changes using Dreamweaver (or notepad) and FTP.  But, if for some reason you do NOT have FTP access, you can still make the changes yourself through the Joomla control panel.

Just log in and go to site > template manager.  Click the radio box of the template you want to manage and click the EDIT HTML icon in the upper right.

A window will open and you can edit the HTML code directly.

We recommend you ad the code just above the <head> tag.

It should look something like this:

<meta name="verify-v1" content="UniqueGoogleID" />
