I went into Webmaster Tools this evening, and it is saying my site isn't verified. When I click to verify, it says the Google Analytics code is in the wrong location. My Google Analytics account is working.
Am I the only one? If so, what can I do to fix this?
Yes, I am encountering the same problem. And there is no header where we can reposition our tags. The synchronous tracking code cannot be used too.
@agilitymach Your profile does show that you have analytics linked to your account.
Have you followed these steps to configure webmaster tools?
http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/How- … ster-Tools
Yes, I did. It did not work. I was in Webmaster Tools just the day before yesterday, and it was working fine.
Can you provide screenshot showing where you see it is not verified?
LOL!!! I can try if I can remember how to do a screen shot. Like I said, I'm not exceedingly technically savvy. I'll go give it a shot though.
Trying it differently. Like I said, I'm not tech savvy. One is before I tried to verify. The other is after. Until yesterday, I'd just go in and have Webmaster Tools running just fine.
Thanks for the examples.
I looked at my Webmaster Tools account and even after following the steps in the Learning Center, my subdomain shows as unverified as well.
We are doing some additional research to determine if perhaps there was a change on Google's end or if there is an issue elsewhere.
I will let you know what we determine.
We did further research and have forwarded the information to our engineering team.
I will update this thread once the fix has been released.
In the meantime, Webmaster Tools should still show info related to your HubPages domain.
Hi Matthew, we cannot access our info if it is not verified. I can still get to my Google analytics though. Hopefully Webmaster Tools will keep collecting data. Thanks for sending the info to the engineering team.
Me too, i m having the same problem, its saying my site is not verified but i thought i m the only one who is having this problem.
one thing you can do that is again download the code and put it in your site and then click verify, i think this will help because i did so.
If you discover any other way to do it then please suggest.
Sorry about that, y'all! I'm moving this thread to the Technical Problems Forum and pinging Matt to see if this might be associated with some sort of bug.
You need to read google's instructions as where to paste the code on your web site. Then copy the code and paste it on your homepage in the code view.
Hi Simone, mine is also not verified and it had been working fine.
I went to Webmaster Tools and clicked the 'History' tab, it is showing 'Reverification failed' for the last 8 days.
The complete message is as follows:
"Reverification failed. The Google Analytics tracking code on your site is in the wrong location. You can verify site ownership only with the asynchronous snippet placed in the <head> section of your home page."
The last time reverification succeeded was on 3/21/2013
Hope this helps, Marisa/MissOlive
I can't access Webmaster Tools either, it's asking for verification.
Google Analytics is still working fine.
Like others, I got the "Verification failed for h ttp://paradigmsearch.hubpages.com/ using the Google Analytics method (2 days ago). The Google Analytics tracking code on your site is in the wrong location. You can verify site ownership only with the asynchronous snippet placed in the <head> section of your home page. Learn more."
But then I clicked verify at bottom of page and got "Congratulations, you have successfully verified your ownership of h ttp://paradigmsearch.hubpages.com/.
So, all looks well now.
I had tried that when I first posted this, and it didn't work. However, I gave it another go after I read your post, and presto. It's working now for me too. Thanks for letting me know!!
Mine hasn't worked since day one....I re-certified and still no good... when I go into Google Analytics it shows I have like two views...I've given up using it at this point.
This is just a total shot in the dark. Is it configured the old way or the "new" subdomain way? Btw, although I'm OK here, GA is giving me a similar hard time on one of my other sites.
GA is a bit freaky. I agree, Some tools not working.

When I first signed up with GA I used hubpages.com Later I added my subdomain address. However, my account is set up with property name hubpages.com and default URL my subdomain. I believe this is incorrect. Thus Webmaster Tools are saying that my sites are not verified. What do I need to do?...

Hello. I have some questions regarding Google Analytics and Webmaster tools. Any help is greatly appreciated. When I checked my webmaster tools, I saw a lot of URL errors, a 404 crawl error because apparently "Googlebot couldn't crawl this URL because it points to a non-existent page"....

I had been verified but the last time I checked I had a 'not verified' note. How do I verify again? I've been through the process but find it tricky. Is it absolutely necessary to be verified? I found it a useful tool before - checking for malware and mesages - but need help getting verification...

I’m still finding my way around these, and I mostly only look at the most basic things like which Hubs do best in search and the ‘query terms’ in WT (and of course I’m transfixed by GA real-time!). Does anyone use GA and WT in more interesting ways – and has anyone written a good...
