Website Verification in Google Merchant Center

I had gone to create a Google Merchant account and in order to validate my website, I had to add my website URL. I tried several types of what will seem to be URL but they all failed to be verified.

My Shopify store name is Proverbia and hence http://proverbia.myshopshopify.com. However, the domain name, which I bought from Shopify and which is connected, and so http://proverbiamkt.com. See the attached printscreen. (I could not attach the printscreen, but a copy of the message is attached).

I had several ways to verify the website but each gave me a 404 Page Not Found even though I could see my website and store with the instruction "Continue Shopping", which worked.

What is the proper URL for my website and store?

1) You can claim your website by adding the HTML tag, ie the meta tag. URL HTML File is no longer possible as you can't upload html files to Shopify.

 

2) You can also first claim your website via Google Search Console, however the process is the same.

 

Make sure you choose alternative method, and select html tag. Then add the tag to your theme.liquid file

 

Hope this helps.

I have access to my server
You can add the HTML or upload a HTML file to your website to verify
 
example for what you are describing perhaps
does not work for me
 
next method example
 
I have the Tag Manager container
You can let Google Tag Manager connect your URL to your account
perhaps this is the method that is considered alternative
this does not work for me

For Shopify, the only method now is to use HTML TAG. More info: https://support.google.com/a/answer/63026?hl=en
