I am happy to be here, and any advice to this question is greatly appreciated. I am a published author, and I am looking to increase my SEO for chosen keywords, credibility, and google search relevance. I felt that having my name being verified by google would help to increase this. I am also working on a few business projects that I am hoping to apply this to as well. I am currently following the advice from this website. However, I am having difficulty. When I submit my website to google search console, it's saying that the ownership verification failed. This is after I paste the given link into my txt records on my website. I have also waited for quite some time and tried again. The results are the same. I am using yahoo for my domain name provider, and I am using @ for the host in the txt record box. Is there any advice about what I need to change in order to get the results that I need? Many thanks.
