bing: Verify Ownership of Google Blogspot & Blogger
Add bing Meta Content to Google Blogspot & Blogger to Verify Ownership
Log into your bing Webmaster Tools account.
In a new browser tab, log into your Google Blogging account. You will see a list of your blogs.
Decide which of your blogs you wish to work on. Click on View blog and a new browser tab will open to display the contents of that blog. Copy the full URL of this blog from the address bar in your browser.
Go back to your list of blogs and select the down-arrow on the right-hand-side of the central Go to Post List button. Select Template from the drop down menu.
At the Template page, click Edit HTML.
Now go back to you bing Webmaster Tools tab and add your site by pasting the URL you just copied into the Add a site bar. Click ADD.
Add the full URL to your sitemap if you know it. If you don’t know it, just proceed without entering it. It can always be submitted later after the verification process.
The bing Webmaster Tools will then ask you to verify your site by one of three methods. You will be using Option2: Copy and paste a <meta> tag in your default webpage
Below where it says:
You can add a <meta> tag containing the authentication code to the <head> section of your default webpage.
Copy the meta name data. It should look something like this:
<meta name="msvalidate.01" content="00000000000000000000000000000000" />
Now return to your Blogspot tab and the HTML code. Look for the code that begins with <head> and concludes with </head>. It will look something like this and will be towards the top (beginning) of the code:
<head> <b:if cond='data:blog.isMobile'> <meta content='width=device-width,initial-scale=1.0,minimum-scale=1.0,maximum-scale=1.0' name='viewport'/> <b:else/> <meta content='width=1100' name='viewport'/> </b:if> <b:include data='blog' name='all-head-content'/> <title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title> <b:skin>...</b:template-skin> <b:include data='blog' name='google-analytics'/> </head>
Paste the meta data directly underneath the <head> label.
Tip! Click the mouse just to the right of the <head> label to position the cursor there. Then press Enter on the keyboard to create a new line beneath it. Then, press Ctrl+v to Paste the data.
<head> <meta name="msvalidate.01" content="00000000000000000000000000000000" /> <b:if cond='data:blog.isMobile'> <meta content='width=device-width .....
Then, click SAVE TEMPLATE.
Go back to the bing Webmaster Tools tab and click VERIFY. If verification of your blog is successful, your blog will be added to the bing dashboard.
To double check that verification has indeed worked, select Configure my site > Verify ownership from the bing menu. The status of verification will be shown to the right of the VERIFY button.
Repeat this process for all the blogs you wish to verify the ownership of in bing.
