Website ownership


With most search engines, you need to verify your site ownership, when you register your website or sign up for webmaster support. Confirmation is usually done by uploading or creating a file with a specific file name.

How to verify your site ownership:

  1. Go to the Settings tab and then the Advanced tab.
  2. Specify the verification file:
    • If you know the name of the confirmation file requested by a search engine, enter the name of the file in the "confirmation file" field and click OK. The Chilly Homepage Designer will create the file in the right place.
    • If you have already downloaded the confirmation file of a search engine, upload the verification file via the "upload confirmation file", and click OK .
  3. After the confirmation file has been created, uploaded and your site has been published, you can acknowledge ownership on the search engines website.
  4. Click OK to save the changes.

Follow these steps to edit the <head> area of your website (Metacode to confirm your ownership):

  1. On the main menu of the Chilly Homepage Designer go to the Settings tab and then the Advanced subtab.
  2. Click Edit metadata.
  3. Paste the code into the required field and click Add.
    • Note: Only valid HTML tags are allowed in the <head> area. Metadata changes will only be available after you have published your site.
  4. Click OK to save the changes.
