Adding Google Webmaster's verification meta tag to your site

Adding the Google Webmaster's verification meta tag to your site is very easily done with the Layout & Design tool.

Google's instructions indicate the following:

Copy the meta tag below, and paste it into your site's home page. It should go in the <head> section, before the first <body> section. To stay verified, don't remove the meta tag, even after verification succeeds.

And then they provide a meta tag like this example below

<meta name="google-site-verification" content="fGBeZPfzbeHfcug7kdVRU0MRGBO8AasaTeK-bk_dH_M" />

To add it to the <head> of your RebelMouse site, here are 3 easy steps:

1) In the Layout & Design tool, click on the Top Bar page

An Important Note on Site Quality From Google’s Search Expert

Do you ever wonder if a few typos can impact your site’s search performance? According to Google’s Search Advocate John Mueller, it takes more than just a few grammatical missteps for Google’s crawler to determine your site’s quality.

During a New Year’s Eve Office Hours hangout, Mueller said that if certain portions of a website are deemed low quality, it can negatively impact the site’s search ranking overall. A good example of this is a site that has different language versions within the same domain. If the site has a French-language version that is made up of quality content, but the English translation isn’t up to the same standard, the ranking of the French version of the site could be negatively impacted.
