A couple of days ago I put the Google Verification HTML Tag into the head of my site, through GP hooks. This morning I noticed that this has inadvertently added ‘page contents’ to the top left corner of my home page. Google said to leave the code there for future verifications, but I obviously don’t want too if it adds this type to my homepage.
Do you have any suggestions? Can I tweak the code a bit, or hook settings so that the type does not show on my HP?
Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mark
Below is the code I copy and pasted into the head:
Hi there, I might have just worked this out actually.
I entered the meta tag instead and this seems to have solved the problem.
Any idea what the other hook settings should be ie other optimal ‘Settings’ and ‘Display Rules’? I would also be interested to know what Settings/’Priority’ these verifications should be set to ie for Google, Yandex, Bing etc?
i have removed the code in your original topic. Yes as you discovered you only require the <meta> tag.
For these site wide tags then the Entire Site rule should be use.
Priority just effects the position the content is hooked into the site. In this case it won’t make much of a difference. Its more for example if you wanted to hook something into the page content above or below elements that are also using the hook – like between the Site Header and the Navigation.
