    I want to thank you for giving simple and visual instructions on how to verify the site. I have been trying for a month but did not have the courage to fiddle with my template as all sites were giving instructions by simply copying from the google instructions which were not clear for someone like me who does not understand html.
    I finally managed to verify my site. Thanks!!
