How can I add a googlebot user agent token into my portfolio site

 I see in Google search console that Google is crawling my site using their Googlebot smartphone crawler. This has been set by an earlier Wordpress version of my site. I'd rather Google indexed by using the desktop crawler. I understand I instruct them to do this by adding user agent token into my site in the headers or in a rotbots.txt file.

But I can't see how to do theither of those in portfolio. Is there a way to do this in Portfolio or is there a way to tell Google via search console to use their desktop crawler not the old one.

 

Thanks in advance

John

@JohnMiles,

Code insertion is NOT possible with Portfolio, apart from Custom Meta Tags fields. 

https://help.myportfolio.com/hc/articles/360015806633-Custom-Meta-Tags

 

If you wish Google to crawl your website, you'll need to verify site ownership first.  Custom Meta Tags is where you would insert that code.  As an example,  <meta name="google-site-verification" content="yourcodehere" /> 

 

As to which crawler Google uses, search Google Console.  Personally, I don't think it matters much either way.

Hope that helps.
