When I did mine I copied the code they supplied which is like below
<meta name="google-site-verification" content="Your code from google" />
I didn't need to do anything else other than past it into the Meta Tags: - Inside <head> tag Box

You can check in the page source of my forum  " https://fengshuihope.createaforum.com " it is there, but the verification fail and it say......

Ownership verification failed
Verification method:

Failure reason:
Your verification file was not found in the required location.

This is were it is failing google-site-verification: googlee173c543dd21cdd5.html it should be like 173c543dd21cdd5
There are two options when you create a console use the other not the option for a html page.
