Google Search Console

I am trying to link my site to google search console. I’ve uploaded google html file to hosting root directory and deployed it to live but google search console still can’t verify it. Google console says " Failure reason:
Could not find the verification file in the required location

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Igor

Hi -
Bumping this up as I really cant figure this one out. I am still getting this error in Google search console Could not find the verification file in the required location

Where does google search console expect to find verification file? I uploaded HTML file into hosting files in the root directory in SE0/Metatags settings.

Thanks,
Igor

Can you try with using other methods to verify? Maybe add the HTML tag to the header section on the home page and publish.

Adding the HTML tag to the header section worked.
