Some services such as Google Search Console and Pinterest Business pages require verification that you are the owner of the website. There are several methods available for website verification.
Please note, the below methods may not work if your Floranext website is a subdomain such as shopflowers.yourdomainhere.com.
Google Search Console
Google Search Console can be a useful tool for figuring out where your website traffic comes from. From Google:
Google Search Console is a free service offered by Google that helps you monitor, maintain, and troubleshoot your site's presence in Google search results. You don't have to sign up for Search Console to be included in Google Search results, but Search Console helps you understand and improve how Google sees your site.
- When verifying your site ownership in Google Search Console, choose HTML Tag for your verification method.
- You will be given a code that looks like the following:
- <meta name="google-site-verification" content="your verification string">
- Where it says "your verification string" - you should see an example that looks similar to:
Do not copy and paste the entire HTML tag, simply copy the information provided in the space that says "your verification string." This is your unique identifier.
You can now send this text to Floranext to add to your system. When this is done, you will be able to run a test to see that the connection has been made.
Google Analytics is another free Google product that helps you learn more about your website's traffic.
When setting up a Google Analytics account, you will be given a universal code that looks something like UA-10982334.
Please send this tag to Floranext to add to your system.
There are some other methods that can be used as well, such as a metatag verification or verification through DNS record (TXT record). Contact Floranext if you need help to determine which will be the best for your shop.
