Using a CMS with a page builder is the easiest way for regular folks to take care of a website. WordPress is by far the most popular CMS in use on today’s Internet. Divi Builder by Elegant Themes is one of the more popular page builders for our WordPress website owners.
Using this combination of tools adds a lot of ease to the way that a website is maintained. Using tools to help make things easier usually means that some tasks become a bit more confusing. One of those tasks is adding Meta Tags to the header of a website.
Meta Tags Website SEO and Verification
Meta Tags are lines of text that are placed between the <header></header> tags at the top of a web page. You may be more familiar with SEO type meta tags like the description tag. While there is a lot of debate as to the impact that a title and description tag lend to search engine placement they are still an important web page feature.
One way that the Meta tag is useful is when a service wants to verify that you have control over a website. Adding a website to Google Webmaster Tools (Now Google Search Console) or Bing Webmaster Tools almost always requires that website ownership is verified. There are several options on how to do this but adding a Meta tag to the top of your web page is one of the popular ways chosen.
Both Bing and Google provide the information needed. The problem comes in when you want to place the Meta code in the header area of your web page without having to manually write it in the code.
WordPress and the Divi Builder makes this task easy enough, finding it though can be a bit daunting. If you have the Divi Builder plugin installed you will see the Divi option in the admin area menu. Hovering will cause the pop-up menu to show the Theme Options selection.
Once Themes Options is open click the Integration tab along the top. From here you can enable the header code. When enabled what you include in the Add code area for the header will appear as expected when the web page is rendered.
Copy and paste the verification Meta tag code provided and click save. Now the website can be verified at the service providers website.
