I opened my online store yesterday, and am trying to link it to Google Merchant.
Before I can start advertising with Google, I need to verify the domain.
As requested, I uploaded the Google html file to Shopify, which all went fine. However, when I went to click the "verify link" button in Google Merchant, it keeps telling me that the webpage they're looking for cannot be found, and that no file has been uploaded.
What to do?!

Click on Online store > Themes > '...' Edit HTML / CSS to find your theme.liquid. Enter the code under the first <head> tag.
It looks like this:
