How to fix common account errors in Google Merchant Center (Unclaimed website)

Unclaimed website





This error happens because your website URL is not claimed and verified by Google yet. You can easily fix this error by adding a meta tag to your site's home page to verify your website URL.

This code is only a marker, and does not give Google access to or permissions for your site. To stay verified, do not remove the HTML tag even after you have verified and claimed your website URL.

First, go to Tools & Settings. Then, choose Business information > Website > Enter your website URL.



Next, click I have access to my server and choose Add an HTML tag to my homepage. Click on Copy to clipboard icon next to the tag to copy it.



After getting the tag, you need to log into your store. Go to Online Store > Themes. Then, on the top right corner click Actions > Edit Code.



Find the file theme.liquid inside the layout folder. Paste the meta tag right underneath your opening <head> tag, then Save.



Finally, go back to Google Merchant Center, scroll down and press Claim URL to submit your URL to Google for verification. If the code is pasted properly in your site's homepage, your website will be claimed and verified quickly.
