Bing Site Verification

  • Enterprise

Verification is the process of proving to Bing (Microsoft) that you are the owner of a website. It is important to confirm ownership because once you have verified a site you have access to its private data, and can affect how Bing crawls it.

Locate your verification code

To locate your Bing site verification code:

  1. Login to your Bing Webmaster Tools account.
  2. From the webmaster tools homepage, locate the site that you would like to verify and select Verify now
  3. You will be prompted with a Meta tag source code which is typically added into the <head> section of your website. Simply extract the code which appears between the content quotation marks - as shown below.
    <meta name="msvalidate.01" content="FD7051125675657234GT5763JSDH2" />

Adding the verification code

  1. From your Divendo admin, select Optimise.
  2. From the Site verification menu, select Bing. You will be presented with the site verification dialog.
  3. Select the Enable verification checkbox, and enter the code you extracted above into the Verification Code text box.
  4. Click the Save button.
