If you previously verified your site with Google manually, your site is already connected. You don't need to connect your site in your SEO Setup Checklist. If the step is marked as not completed in your checklist, you can ignore it. 
The Wix SEO Setup Checklist is a step-by-step checklist designed to help you get found online. The SEO Setup Checklist gives you advice about the information your site needs to connect and verify your site with Google

You can create a tailored checklist based on your business, your location, and your keywords. Follow the steps in your checklist to improve the search engine optimization (SEO) of your site and get your site indexed on Google. After you've connected, the SEO Setup Checklist helps get your site indexed quickly so that your site appears in search results.
