In order to use Google's webmaster tools (Google Analytics, Google Places, e-mail, etc), you must first verify your site with Google.

To retrieve the coding necessary to verify your site with Google (skip these steps if you aleady have Webmaster tools set-up with Google):

  • Go to:
  • On the right, click Get Started
  • Input the domain name for your shop and click Get Started
  • Fill out the personal information.
  • Create the Administrator account – this is going to be the PRIMARY account.

You now have set-up an account with Google. To verify your domain:

  • Click on Dashboard.
  • At the top, click on Activate Google Apps
  • Select Alternate Methods
  • From the options, click on Add a meta tag to your site’s home page
  • Copy the meta information and either e-mail to Florists Online or add in Web Portal under Google Site Verification
    • Login to Web Portal
    • Click on Administration on the top
    • Click on Google Site Verification on the left
    • Copy the Meta Tag provided by Google into the open field
    • Click on Update
  • On the Google Dashboard, click Verify

This verification process may take a few hours to complete. Once completed, you will be able to access and use Google's Webmaster Tools.
