[Resolved] [Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Webmaster Tools verification failing

  • I have just tried the Webmaster Tools for Google and Bing using the place meta tag option in each. Verification failed. I read another forum post on this topic and as I use WP Supercavhe, I cleared the cache and tried again. Same result.

    used Firebug to heave a look at the Head section of the site and there is no meta tag there relating to Google or Bing.

    I do have the Use meta keywords tag on if that is relevant.

    I haven’t had a problem with any other of the Yoast SEO settings e.g. sitemap is working.

    Any ideas will be welcome thank you.

    What value did you add in the respective google and bing fields?

    For Google

    <meta name=”google-site-verification” content=”ocx1GNeblM- etc 7g9DFzY0″ />

    and for Bing

    <meta name=”msvalidate.01″ content=”2286 etc 81E9″ />

    What’s the “etc” doing in there?

    Presumed you needed just the form of what I used rather than the exact detail. Sorry – I should have mentioned I had done that.

    Don’t assume 🙂 which version of the plugin are you running and can you share the URL of your site?

    ocad.com.au

    Note that I later implemented the Webmasters through one of the other methods. So that might negate the value of further investigation.

    Noted, also noted that you’re running an “older” version of the plugin 🙂 I think the code in there is fine though…

    Interesting re ‘older version’. I have 1.1.9 and the current version on your website is 1.1.9
