Mindy is setting up her Google Merchant Center account and has to verify her website URL. Her website URL must:
include IP addresses
be as specific as possible (for example, http://www.example.com#top)
begin with http:// or https://
Before you can upload product data to Merchant Center for Google Shopping, you need to verify and claim your store’s website URL. Verification lets Google know that you are an authorized owner of a website URL.

How it works
Merchant Center leverages Google Search Console, a product that helps you monitor and maintain your site’s presence on Google, for website verification and claiming. You can verify and claim your website URL without leaving Merchant Center and we’ll associate your website information with Search Console through your Google Account. If you’re familiar with Google Search Console and have already verified your website URL before, you can easily claim it in your Merchant Center account.
The links you provide in your product data must match the URL, including the top level domain (ex: .com, .net), that you claim in your account. Items submitted for any domain other than the one registered in your Merchant Center account will not process successfully.
