Dear Teams,

I hope you are doing well. 

Anyone has experiecne in using Tealium IQ Tag Extension for Search Console Verification? Google has a new way of verificiation and it requires DNS record change:

Is there anyway doing it without the need of coding?

Hello Law,

You will not be able to verify ownership of your domain for google through Tealium. These are limitations that Google enforces for their verification methods. This particular method requires you to add a file using your domain provider. Google has various other methods for verifying site ownership. Tealium being wrapped in JavaScript will not be able to implement any of the methods of verification that Google requires.

Hello @WuBaZi ,

would you not be able to use the HTML tag method and use a js extensions to create the verification meta data like such:

var newMeta=document.createElement('meta'); newMeta.name="google-site-verification"; newMeta.content="yz1KBJ7bYQaEL6CwZvLWKJvOHd8vJdHrCr5e4XXXXXX"; document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(newMeta);

Hello @Ymountassir,

This is all dependant on how Google has configured their site crawler. It was my understanding that Google's site verification crawler does not render JavaScript, this would mean that all of utag would not execute. However, Google may have changed the way they verify sites, your link seems to indicate that it may be possible. You would need to speak with Google support to see if this is possible with their current verification methods, or try testing this with the JS extension as you mentioned.
