Problem with Google Webmaster Tracking Code /User Name UA-


Recommended Posts

I am using Prestashop, Google Analytics, Google Webmaster all three for a few months now.

The Google tracking code is set by the Prestashop Google Analytics module ( Google Analytics v1.3 by PrestaShop)

Analytics and Webmaster good find the code for months


Since today I still can use Google Analytics but I can not use Webmaster anymore:



Verify ownership



warning_tiny.gifVerification failed for http://www.sigaren-online.nl/ using the Google Analytics method (less than a minute ago). The Google Analytics tracking code on your site is in the wrong location. You can verify site ownership only with the asynchronous snippet placed in the <head> section of your home page. Learn more.

Verifying is not positive anymore


The code is visible on the page

It turns out that Google Webmaster can already find the code since end december

At that time I also upgraded to the latest version of Prestashop


Any clues?

Hello Richard,


Thanx for your answer


I added the line to header.tpl in the theme:


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="{$lang_iso}">


<meta name="google-site-verification" content="ABCsGMfqZuvKjJwoeKZtMrq8QzaEY63w3PWZMVXlf_k" />


{if isset($meta_description) AND $meta_description}

<meta name="description" content="{$meta_description|escape:html:'UTF-8'}" />


{if isset($meta_keywords) AND $meta_keywords}

<meta name="keywords" content="{$meta_keywords|escape:html:'UTF-8'}" />



But Google still tells me

Verification failed for http://www.sigaren-online.nl/ using the Meta tag method (less than a minute ago). We couldn't find the verification meta tag
