How I can't understand his instructions. Too complicated. Can you help elaborate it. Thanks!

EDIT: Trying to replicate and it doesn't actually seem to work with txt files anymore? Could've sworn it was working before. 

Go ahead and upload your txt file to your File Manager located at Settings > Files (the gear icon on the bottom left of your site's admin panel). You will now have the URL for the file on your Shopify site.

Next go to Online Store > Navigation > URL Redirects.

From here you want to make sure that your From address is is the URL that Google is looking for while your To address will be the URL of your file from the File Manager. 


Hope that helps!

Hey!

I've already verified my Shopify site no problem for Adsense but now I'm trying to upload a txt file to the root level domain of my site.  Having a hard time with this as I'm a bit of a newb.

Can anyone help?

 

Thanks!

Hi there,

A good way to deal with is to upload the txt file to the setting/files page.
Then create a redirect from yourdomain.com/the-google-txt-file-name to the direct link of the uploaded txt file. That helped me verify my Shopify account.

A different way to do it would be to upload a txt file in your domain names dns settings.

Does this help you?

if you have domain forwarding on then you must cancel it before doing
anything. And I finally called shopify help and they talked me through it.

I have been trying this for days now.  The person that ran our google ads account left the company and we have been trying to recover the login.  I have the the txt file created.  It's saved in Settings/Files,  I have created the Redirect From my domain: www.example.com/analytics.txt  (google instructions said to save the txt file as analytics and add it to the end of your domain) then i copied and pasted the Settings/File created URL as the Redirect To.  When you test it it just takes you to a blank page?  Google sends me an email back saying the link does not work..... try again dummy.  Any Ideas??
