Step 3 : 

After you have added the link to your website you will be presented with the following screen. 
You can choose any of the methods mentioned here to verify ownership
This screen presents you with multiple options to verify that you are the actual owner of the website. As you can clearly see that there are multiple options to choose to verify your website, we recommend you to choose the "Alternate methods". Click the Alternate methods tab.  These are the options that you will be provided with.

Add <meta> tag in website's <head> section and then click verify
For this example we have chosen to use the HTML tag option to easily verify the website or blog. This is one of the most important methods to verify ownership. Remember you can actually use more than one method to verify ownership. 

As you can see from the above picture that you are provided with a <meta> tag and what you need to do with this tag is, navigate your website page and add the <meta> tag before the end of the </head> section. 
After you have added the  <meta> tag in the head section of your website you are now ready to verify your ownership. Click the "VERIFY" button. You website will get verified instantly and you will be able to use the different tools provided in Google Webmaster Tools.

You will notice that you are not provided with any data at the beginning as because your site is newly added to the Google Webmaster. The next thing that you need to do is create a site map of your website and add it Google Webmaster.
