Thanks but i figured it out, took all night, i just used the meta verification.


also that is the right ode according to shopify help, if it is not, then the help docs need to be revised.

Chris, you cannot verify with analytics because the snippet used in Shopify is different. I suggest you use the file upload method because theme updates can remove the meta snippet (easy to forget about.) If you verify via the file upload method, then you upload the file, copy the file name, and setup a redirect that Google wants to this file. Just make sure in the redirect the part from the question mark onwards is removed.
