1. Head to Google Search Console
To kick things off, visit the Google Search Console. Log in with the Google account you'd like to manage your Weebly site with. We prefer consolidating all sites under a primary email, but the choice is yours.
2. Use the properties dropdown to add a new property
3. Specify the domain name
Head over to your Weebly site, copy the URL, and insert it into the URL prefix option pane.
4. Grab the meta tag
Once you click 'Continue', a unique meta tag will be presented to you. This is critical - it verifies your ownership of the site when added to Weebly. Make sure you copy it!
5. Access the SEO tab in the Weebly Editor
Go to the Weebly Editor and open the SEO tab.
6. Insert the meta tag
In the SEO tab, scroll down until the "Header Code" section becomes visible. Paste the copied meta tag there. Remember to hit both "save" and then "publish" for the changes to take effect.
7. Confirm your changes
Return to the Google Search Console and click "Verify". If everything has been done correctly, a success notification should greet you.
Congratulations, You Did It! 🙂
Verifying your Weebly site on the Google Search Console is a big stride towards successful SEO.
