See the snapshot. It is working for me. I am attaching the file so that you can test it without even touching the code.

Simply Enter the USERNAME and PASSWORD in cell B1 and B2

It is very simple :)

First open a web browser and manually click the SignIn link on top. It will take you to the Sign In page. Copy the URL and paste the URL in the code below and run it :)

Sub LogOn()
    Dim ie As Object

    Set ie = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")

    ie.Visible = True
    
    '~~> Paste URL here
    ie.Navigate "https://www.google.com/accounts/Login?hl=en&continue=http://www.google.co.in/%23q%3Dvba%2Bcode%2Bto%2Bsign%2Bon%2Bto%2Ba%2Bwebsite%26hl%3Den%26biw%3D1280%26bih%3D619"
    
    '~~> Wait until page is loaded.
    While ie.ReadyState < 4
        DoEvents
    Wend
           
    ie.Document.All("Email").Value = "USERNAME"
    ie.Document.All("Passwd").Value = "PASSWORD"
    ie.Document.All("signIn").Click
       
    '~~> Wait until page is loaded.
    While ie.ReadyState < 4
        DoEvents
