404notfound when trying to verify ownership for Bing (3 posts)

    Hello,

    I'm trying to verify ownership for: http://www.clairebarclay.com for Bing.

    Next to Bing Webmaster Tools in the Yoast Plugin I have put: <meta name="msvalidate.01" content="FAAD619B476B287970439A7CD590D423" />

    As it says:
    Option 2: Copy and paste a <meta> tag in your default webpage

    You can add a <meta> tag containing the authentication code to the <head> section of your default webpage.
    <meta name="msvalidate.01" content="FAAD619B476B287970439A7CD590D423" />
    An example:
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta name="msvalidate.01" content="FAAD619B476B287970439A7CD590D423" />
    <title>Your SEO optimized title</title>
    </head>
    <body>
    page contents
    </body>
    </html>

    But when I try "Confirm successful upload by visiting http://www.clairebarclay.com/BingSiteAuth.xml in your browser" I get "404Page Not Found".

    So confused! Help!

    I did the same verification for my website http://webhostprotocol.com

    You will have to just add the text widget and insert the given code to it. After that, verify it at provided link. Thats it...
