Adds the verification code of Google Search Console, former Google Webmaster Tools, to your site.

Google Search Console
Google Search Console, former Google Webmaster Tools, does a great job when it comes to check the indexing status of your site.

SMNTCS Google Webmaster Tools

SMNTCS Google Webmaster Tools enables you to add Google Search Console to your website.

Why do I need Google Webmaster Tools in first place?

Google Webmaster Tools enables web masters to detect indexing issues, e.g. if the Google Bot cannot access the page or if missing pages occur in the search index.

How do I add Google Webmaster Tools to my page?

  1. Go to https://search.google.com/search-console/welcome
  2. Provide your URL in the section URL prefix, e.g. https://example.com, and click on Continue
  3. Now, open the section HTML tag within the section Other verification methods
  4. Copy the meta tag, e.g. <meta name="google-site-verification" content="BeFze6w_rrIm1NFPKJ-pDDbkf0oeqrtC5sjqb6WzCoE" />
  5. Go to Google Webmaster Tools and paste your verification code

Why am I not able to save the verification code?

This issue might be caused by a security plugin. If you use a security plugin, e.g. Wordfence, then disable it so save your verification code and activate it once you’re done.
