Site verification

I used the Headers and Footers plugin to add the html meta verification tag to the header section of my website, but it would not verify. Next, I added the meta string to the homepage meta keywords list in the Theme homepage settings, but it still would not verify.

Norton does not give anyone an option about whether their rating appears next to their site in Internet searches, so how can I add the verification tag to my site so I can make sure I avoid Norton giving my site the appearance of not being secure?

Re: Site verification

I used this plugin to add the html meta tag to the header area of my site: https://wordpress.org/plugins/insert-headers-and-footers/. After adding the tag, the Norton SafeWeb site verification failed.

Here is a link to my site: https://www.ludditeonline.com/.

Re: Site verification

Hello TRL16

Please leave the metatag  pasted onto the home page of your site.

If it is there, then Cops can manually verify ownership

Cops can also rate the site and if all tests are passed, then you get green go rating.

Then metatag can be removed.

I will notify Cops of your situation.

Please stay tuned. Thanks.

Re: Site verification

I have placed the meta tag on the homepage in the html text area above the site title. However, I cannot see it. Maybe you have some other way of looking at the page's source code. I have done as you requested. Please advise.

Re: Site verification

Hello TRL16

Please post the meta tag on the home page in plain sight. It has to be visible. You can remove it once Cops is able to see it and verify ownership and test the site. He will do this manually for you.  He will come tonight, that is Daylight Savings Time in the USA East Coast. This is my time. Please let me know when you have done as requested. Then I can notify Cops.

Thanks.

Re: Site verification

Hello

Where on that large site should I look for it? I haven't seen it yet when I have looked for it now. I do see on the bottom the word META, but that is all I do see. What browser are you using to do this? You should use an Admin Account and IE 11 browser. I have just done my Windows Updates, but I don't think that should make it disappear.

Thanks.

Re: Site verification

On the home page, under the opening text that appears under the slider...

I am using an Admin account in Firefox. When I am logged in as administrator, the meta tag appears. When I log out, I cannot see it. So you cannot see it because you are looking at the site as a visitor. I just tried with IE Explorer and got the same result: it shows when I am logged in as admin, but it dies not show when I log out.

what do you suggest?

Re: Site verification

Hello TRL

I see the meta tag now in the About page on the bottom. Please keep it there until Cops has done his verification and testing of the site tonight. I will message him that it is available now, but he doesn't start working until late tonight.

Thanks.
