I create a GitHub site last September. Since then I have created five repositories. Google has never been able to locate any of them. I am only allowed to include two links in this post. So, I will link to my main repo of interest and to its associated GitHub Page.
The repo of main interest is:
A couple of days ago I created a GitHub Page for this repo here. Google has not been able to find this GitHub Page yet:
I repeatedly over months have tried adding a Google Site Verification file
(“googlef793ae3677cf0513.html”) downloaded from Google Search Console to the main repo of interest (the tutorial identified above).
Most recently I have been using the url for the main branch of the tutorial repo in Google Search Console (under “URL prefix”). That url ends with “/tree/main”.
Google Search Console returns this error message when I click the Verify button after uploading the file “googlef793ae3677cf0513.html” to the main branch of my GitHub tutorial repo:
Your verification file has the wrong content. Are you using the verification file that you downloaded here?
Please fix your implementation and reverify, or use another verification method.
[Learn more]… (I removed the url)
I have done everything I can think of to resolve this issue including working through 12 hours of video in a Git and Github course on Udemy (the instructor was unfamiliar with this issue and did not cover repo verification), watching YouTube videos, and searching the internet. The answers to this StackOverflow post are over my head: “GitHub repository not listing in Google search [closed]”.
I also have seen this similar post on GitHub Community: “My GitHub repositories are not known by Google”.
Thank you for any suggestions and assistance enabling Google to find and list my GitHub repos in search results.
