The preferred method for validating your domain is the meta tag method. You can verify your domain ownership by adding a meta tag Custom HEAD Tags. Add the meta tag to Custom Head Tags allows the code to work in the background of your Givecloud site. Donors will not see the Google meta tag on the site.

Google will provide you with a meta tag that contains the code you will use to paste into the Custom HEAD Tags field on Givecloud. We recommend referring to this Google support article to find the Meta Tag: Verify your domain through your website. Refer back to this article to complete the verification process on Google.

Add the Meta Tag to Givecloud

To add the meta tag to the Custom HEAD Tags section on Givecloud:

  1. Go to Features > Website > Site Design > scroll to Advanced.

  2. Scroll to the custom HEADS tags section.

  3. Copy the meta tag and paste the code into this section. The meta tag will look something like this:

<!-- Google Tag Manager -->
<script>(function(w,d,s,l,i){w[l]=w[l]||[];w[l].push({'gtm.start':
new Date().getTime(),event:'gtm.js'});var f=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],
j=d.createElement(s),dl=l!='dataLayer'?'&l='+l:'';j.async=true;j.src=
'https://www.googletagmanager.com/gtm.js?id='+i+dl;f.parentNode.insertBefore(j,f);
})(window,document,'script','dataLayer’,’ID code ‘generated by google');</script>
<!-- End Google Tag Manager -->

4. Save.

Allow up to 24 hours for verification in Google.
