HI! I am having trouble claiming my website for my products to show up on google, however I am the only one that should have the permissions to do so (besides an SEO company that I had help me for a month or so).


Can anyone help me with this? Thanks so much!

I'm not aware where you "claim" a domain in Google Analytics, GA is more about installing the script.

Do you instead mean claiming the domain in Google Merchant Centre? Having the GA script installed (and being an admin for that GA account) while signed into merchants.google.com is typically a method to verify GMC, that approach sometimes has issues on Shopify. I usually use GTM or "add html tag" to verify a site in GTM.

If you mean you're trying to verify in Google Merchant Centre - then:

  1. Have a read of this guide a couple times: https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/176793
  2. I'd suggest the "Add an HTML tag" method for simplicity
  3. Then hit verify in Google Merchant Centre
