Why do I need Google Webmaster Tools in first place?

Google Webmaster Tools enables web masters to detect indexing issues, e.g. if the Google Bot cannot access the page or if missing pages occur in the search index.

How do I add Google Webmaster Tools to my page?
  1. Go to Google Webmaster Tools (https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/)
  2. Log in with your Google account (or create one if you don’t have one yet)
  3. Click on ‘Add property’, fill in your URL and click on continue
  4. Choose ‘Alternative methods’, select ‘HTML Tag’, click on ‘Show me an example’ and copy the verification code
  5. Go to ‘Appearance’ » ‘Customize’ » ‘Google Webmaster Tools’ and paste your verification code
Why am I not able to save the verification code?

This issue might be caused by a security plugin. If you use a security plugin, e.g. Wordfence, then disable it so save your verification code and activate it once you’re done.
