I posted the
then to header.php before </head> as I usually would.
Then I saw to paste into HTML Inserts: Body Bottom so I tried that.
Then I tried pasting it directly into footer.php above </body>
Then I made analytics.php with the <script></script> in it and pasted
<?php include_once("analytics.php") ?>
Each change I make I delete once it does not verify.
Then I installed Google Analyticator plugin, did not work to verify. Uninstalled.
Then I installed All In One Webmaster plugin, did not work to verify. Uninstalled.
Then I uninstalled all plugins and went through the initial series of pasting the codes into various positions previously mentioned, being sure it is not duplicated.
Thanks in advance for any help,
