Add Meta Tags Manually

If you’re looking for a way to add a meta tag in WordPress to verify your website for a tool like Google Webmasters or Google Analytics, the best way to do so is to manually edit your website theme header file.

To add a meta tag to the header file you’ll have to edit a theme file. So make sure that you backup your website just in case.

Now, go to Appearance >> Editor and find the header.php file.

On this page you’ll see a bunch of HTML and PHP code. Search the page for thetag. You’ll probably see a few basic meta tags already inside this section.

Your meta tags go inside this section after thetag. It doesn’t matter where you add it as long as you add it before the closingtag.

Once you copy-paste the meta tag in the header section, click Update File button to save the changes. That’s it!
