Hello,

The instructions are still correct, you add the property, choose the "Add a meta tag to your site's home page."
The only difference with the new builder is you paste that code under Manage > Advanced > Site Meta Tags.

You just need to Add A Property (Your URL), choose "Alternative methods" and choose HTML tag. Paste the tag they give you into your builder.
If you are using SB+: paste it under Page Settings > Advanced
If you are using Website Builder, paste it under Manage > Advanced > Site Meta Tags.

When I get to Page Setting>Advance I do not see any alternative methods and choose HTML tag.

Can you start from the beginning?

The first part of my message (add property, choose alternative methods and choose HTML tags) are on Google webmaster tools. Once you have the code, go under Page settings > Advanced to add it

I just tried it on a site of mine and it worked. I would double check the code and try again.
