Check the box next to Site Verification Tags, then Save.
If you have already set it up or after the above step:
Click the Site Verification Tags tab that appears at the top of the page.
Paste the meta tag into the field provided. If you had added any other code such as your in the past, make sure that you paste the meta tag on a separate line.
