When you submit your sitemap to Google, you will be prompted to add a line of HTML code to your index page to verify that you own the website.

You also have the option of uploading an HTML file for verification purposes, but unless you're using an external FTP client like Direct FTP, pasting the code is your easiest option. Here's how you add this code in Visual Site Designer:

  1. Go to Edit > Edit Header.This opens the Head Section HTML and Onload Events window.
  2. Paste the code in the Header HTML tab.
  3. Click OK to exit the window.
