Having trouble using GA as a verification for Search Console.

Hello,

I set up GA for my site and used it to verify my Search Console which was a success. 

Something happened and I started getting emails to say verification had since failed. 

I've added my code to the preferences part of Shopify, and i've used Tag Assistant which shows the tag is firing. I can even see myself in RealTime on GA. 

But for some reason when I use sites such as www.gachecker.com it can't find it which is obviously why SearchConsole can't verify against GA. 

Can anybody help me with this?

Thanks

Matt

The easiest way I verify my sites is using the HTML header tag and placing it in the theme.liquid header file.

Google late last year seemed to have disliked the HTML verification method with Shopify because it ultimately points to a CDN file not hosted on the primary domain being verified. I suggest you do it via the HTML header tag rather than a file upload.
