I’m trying to authenticate my site with Google webmaster but no matter what I do it will not authenticate. I followed your instructions to the letter. I select authentication via HTML tag. I copy the code. I paste it into the correct box under Google Webmaster Authentication. I click update on the top of the page. I then go back to the Google Webmaster Page and click Verify and it fails. I also have Wordfence running on my site so I was wondering perhaps if that is blocking something but I doubt it. Is there something I can do to resolve this or something else I can try? I can get the .html page code but I’m not sure where I would place that code on my site. My assumption is I would need to get on CPanel and upload it do the root directory. One thing I should mention is I am using Cloudflare for DNS management but again, I don’t believe that should be an issue.
Any assistance would be welcome.

I was just about to do that. I tried the DNS route with Cloudflare where I add a CNAME alias but that did not work either. I will do the upload and see if that works… obviously just the tag would have been the easiest route but Murphy always works overtime and sometimes even doubletime. 😉
UPDATE: Doing the upload .html worked for both Google and Bing
