Site not being recognised by google

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Hoping someone can help!

Have followed all instructions provided by Squarespace and doesn't help.

I have a new site storysharing.com.au which has been live for 2 weeks.

I did the steps Analytics> Search Keywords and connected the site to google console.
And when i search site:storysharing.com.au after 72 hours + it's not appearing. I disconnected and reconnected again and still not working.

When I try and verify the site that doesn't work either.

Verification method:
Domain name provider
Failure reason:
We couldn't find your verification token in your domain's TXT records. Sometimes DNS changes can take a while to appear. Please wait a few hours, then reopen your property in Search Console. If verification fails again, try adding a different DNS TXT record.


The domain name was purchased directly through Squarespace.

Thank you

Hi @jessfitzgibbon,

Unfortunately, I can't see why the verification isn't working, but I can see you don't have any backlinks.

When you're able to fix the issue, see if you can get relevant links from other websites to yours in order to boost your rankings.
