Verify your Website in Google Search Console


This article will explain how to verify your website with the Google Search Console.

Note : Keep in mind that Google are often changing their UI but the way the whole procedure works remains the same, so at the moment your are reading this article Google Search Console may look a bit different.

Google Search Console is essentially a G­oogle service that grants you a series of webmaster tools for your website, including visitor analytics, statistics, and SEO rankings.

Add your website to Google Search Console and verify yourself as the owner to access your statistics tools.

Let's start by adding your website:

  1. In the Search Console home page, type the URL (web address) of the website, or portion of the site, for which you want data (1) and click on Add a Property (2).

    Input your URL into Google Search Console

  2. Specify the URL exactly as it appears in the browser bar, including the final / (forward-slash) mark. Here is an example:

    Specify the URL carefully

    If your site has an SSL Certificate active, then the URL you input must include https:// at the beginning. Double check that your website has an SSL active before inputting the full URL. You can easily verify this by opening your website and checking the URL bar for 'https' or just 'http'.

  3. This is a key step in your domain verification. The easiest method to verify your domain is with the use of an HTML file.
    After completing the previous step, Google Search Console will automatically open the page for .html verification:

    Download the HTML file here

  4. Download the HTML file (as seen above) and upload it to the website directory on your WPX Hosting account. The simple way to upload is to visit your File Manager.

  5. To access your File Manager, log in to your WPX Hosting account and go to
    My Services (1) WordPress Hosting (2) File manager (3) and then open your file manager.

    Access your File Manager here

  6. In your File Manager, simply drag and drop the HTML file you downloaded earlier into this menu:

    Drop the HTML file into this menu

  7. With that done, return to Google Search Console, tick the reCAPTCHA box, and hit Verify:

    Click the reCAPTCHA and hit Verify

    When complete, you should see this message:
