You can use Analytics or Google Tag Manager to verify your ownership of a site on Google Search Console.
  1. Set up the web tracking code on your web pages.
  2. Go to Webmaster Central and click Add a site. Enter the URL of your site.
  3. Two tabs are provided: Recommended method and Alternate methods.

Try selecting the Alternate methods and Domain provider. Select other as the domain provider. You will get a TXT record. Go to the domains tab and add the TXT record under Advanced DNS settings.

So, I am totally lost in this process. I think I added what was supposed to be added, but don't know. I still do not see any visitors to my site, but am certain that I had some.

So, to add Google Analytics, where do I paste the code that they give me? Do I have to have a Google tag first? An easy step by step tutorial would be so nice. The only thing I liked better about the old site was that it had all of this included.

Clairice2888, which site are you trying to set up? It can take some time for Google to start recording stats.
