  3. Open a new tab. Navigate to https://www.google.com/webmasters, and log in. Click Add a Property.
  4. Enter your URL exactly how it appears in your Convertri Domains list. Click Add.
  5. On the next screen, click Alternate Options, and check the HTML Tag checkbox. Copy the code to your clipboard.
  6. Back in the Convertri tab, paste your code into the Google Search Console ID box. Click Update.
  7. Republish the page you want to verify.
  8. In the Google Search Console tab, click Verify.
