How do I add a Google verification key on my domain name?

When you sign your business up for a Google for Work product, you provide the domain name you want to use with Google services. This is the unique name that appears after the @ sign in your company email address and after www. in your web site address. Before your organization can use Google services like Gmail with your company's domain, you'll need to verify that you own it. This ensures that no one else can use services or send email that appears to come from your company.
