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

Google Made Major Changes to Its Formula for Page Speed. Here’s What to Do About It in 2022.

Make sure your site is set up for success in 2022.

In the spring of 2020, Google let the world know that its Core Web Vitals would become the new benchmark for measuring a site's performance in its search results, known as the page experience update. Fast forward to more than a year later in August 2021 when, after much anticipation, Google's page experience update became official.

Since its rollout, developers have felt the impact of how their publishing platforms stack up against the new standard. Important decisions around the architecture of your site can now make or break your site's performance in the eyes of Google.

HTTP Archive, a tracking platform that crawls the web to identify trends and record historical patterns, frequently reports on how top content management systems (CMS) have weathered the page experience update through the creation of its Core Web Vitals Technology Report. RebelMouse has consistently outperformed major CMS platforms on Google's most critical metrics throughout the year:

Getting superior scores on Google's performance benchmarks isn't easy, either. The Ahrefs blog analyzed Core Web Vitals data from the Chrome User Experience Report (CrUX), which is data from actual Chrome users, to see how the web stacks up against Core Web Vitals. Their study found that only 33% of sites on the web are passing Core Web Vitals.

data from Ahrefs tracked on a line chart finds that shows only 33% of sites on the web pass Google's Core Web VitalsFrom Ahrefs.

Luckily, performing well on Core Web Vitals is possible with thoughtful, strategic changes to your site’s codebase. Here's what you need to know and how we can help.
