How to Verify Your Website on Google using Rank Math

Rank Math lets you verify your website on Google using the Webmaster Tools. The Webmaster Tools option allows you to verify your website with various third-party webmaster tools like Google Search Console, Bing, Baidu, Alexa, Yandex, Pinterest, and Norton.

You can locate the Webmaster Tools in WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > General Settings > Webmaster Tools. You can learn more about Webmaster Tools in our knowledge base tutorial that will help you to understand the basic settings of the Webmaster Tools.
