WebMaster Tools Not Verifying website

This question has suggested answer(s)


I am trying to verify ownership of my website within Bing Webmaster tools but it's not recognizing the file?

We have uploaded:

I click "verify" and it shows "verification failed".

Please help.

Thank you, -T

  • I can not do too.

  • You just try other one verification(Meta Tag Insertion) method.

  • it's hard for me to verify it either, *** on this.

  • Read the second answer here:

  • I was having problems as well, only with the meta tag option.  I added it to the proper column in the All in One Webmaster plugin I use on my Wordpress blog, but it still wouldn't verify.  So I figured I would give it a little time to change the files, and sure enough, it worked this morning. 

    Sometimes you just need to wait, unfortunately...

  • I have had problems too. I tried again today by downloading the file then uploading straight to FTP (FileZilla) and it worked. So try doing that again, it might work for you.

    I'm not sure but it could be something really stupid like end-of-lline characters. I was using Linux before and it just wouldn't verify.

  • Are you sure your site (or exactly your sitemap .xml file  ) is accessible for Bing?  Anyway, you can check the current online status of your sitemap file with to be sure about that.

  • hello friend, Make sure to upload file only in root DIR,

    try to use other methods like DNS or meta tag.

  • Give it some time after uploading the file. From what I see the file is uploaded correctly
