This is a place devoted to giving you deeper insight
into the news, trends, people and technology behind Bing.
I just signed up last night.I have tried the META tag but it did not work.So I e-mailed the support for the bing webmasters.And they told me the best way to verify my site was to use the XML.
So the way I understand it I need to download the .XML from bing which I already did.But it says I need to upload the file to blog site dawnreneesreaders.blogspot.com/bingsiteauth.xml.But I don't know how to do this.
Do I need to make a post titled bingsiteauth.xml and then upload the xml file to that some how.
I am new to working with xml files so if you could tell me how to upload the file into blogger blog that would be great thank you and god bless.
I'm been searching for the same answer to the same question off and on for two weeks. The overwhelming response from the community tells me that both of us might have better success by going outside and asking the birds how to do it.
I finally figured it out on my own --
Highlight the META tag displayed on the Bing verify page.
Open your Blogspot (blogger.com) template and click Edit HTML.
Then -- and here is where every other publisher of advice has failed -- SCROLL DOWN through the code and look for the HTML "Head" end tag </head>. (On my Simple template, it appears directly under the end tag for the template skin </b:template-skin>), about 3-4 of the way down the page. Paste the Bing META tag directly under the Skin end tag, even with it (indented one space) and directly above the Head end tag.
Lots of people will tell you to paste it between the <head> and </head> tags, but not EXACTLY where. If you paste it anywhere else and try to verify, it won't work and all you're doing is running up your own page view stats.
Click Save Template go back to Bing, and click Verify.
Bing will then take you to your site's dashboard, and its status will display as SUCCESS.
It took me two weeks of off and on trial and error fumbling, and reading misinformation and useless advice published six years ago, before I got it to work. IMO there is NO EXCUSE for such a simple task to be made so difficult. The fault is Blogspot's for not allowing it to be done the easy way, by uploading the XML file that contains the verification code, AND well-meaning "experts" who can't communicate.
Good manual. I think Bing should update the verification procedure of sites: the META tag should be identified by Bing robot at any places between tags <head> and </ head>.
Worked beautifully! Thanks!
This shows as a Non answered question, but it Really is!
Its answered amazingly!
So happy that i found it!
Thank you very much, It is really useful. Had same problem and It worked for me too
