Help With Verifying Fourm with Bing

Post by KillerrKing on September 11th 2012, 4:00 am

I'm trying to verify my fourm with Bing. I did it with google, but Bings a bit more troublesome.

Its giving me three options

1) Download the XML file (BingSiteAuth.xml) No upload or script option on fourms

2)Add the Metatag containing the authentication code to the <head> section of your default webpage. (???)

3) And Lasty, which I think I dont have, Add CNAME record to DNS

Need some help.

Thanks!

Sign up for the account. Then you'll have to validate by three options, which none you can do unless you have an advanced settings on. Then copy and paste the validate meta tag code they give you. It's not hard if you follow their steps, I know signing up for things sucks but to validate sometimes you have to.

I signed up already. If I could know more about where to properly place the metatag then that would be the gamer changer and a big help Smile

After you have your meta tag from Bing:

Go to AP>>General>>Search Engines>>

On that page find "Additional tags" and click the green icon to add a meta tag.

You will have a meta tag from Bing that look something like this example:

<meta name="msvalidate.031" content="798491567464AEF221D10369068458684ABC17" />

You will need to break the code up that bing gives you and add it where it says to on your forum in the additional tags:

On your forum in additional tags it will have a place to add the "Name" and the "Content".

The name which would be this "msvalidte.031"

And the content would be this "798491A711F8AEF221D10369068458684ABC17"

Just add the name and the numbers no quotation marks or any other part of the code Bing gives you and save your settings. Then click the "Validate" button at Bing. Keeo a window open at Bing so you can click the validate button after you add the code on your forum.

The topic starter says hes using phpbb3 in his profile, and phpbb3 doesn't have template editing.
