I went in to Bing Webmaster and I entered my site added the meta tag in my SEO and when I verify they give me this message:

URL http://brightoncomputerandretailstore.com/BingSiteAuth.xml

HTTP Error: Status Code 404. We did not receive a 200 (OK) response when requesting your page. Please make sure the URL to your authentication file exist and try again.

Can anyone suggest what I should do.

Thank you,

Kim Holmes

What FTP client are you using?
I have had problems whit uploading, some time the complete file is not uploaded.
When you upload to your root directory, be sure that it states the size of the file is the same as the one on your computer.

I had some of the same trouble when I was verifying with Google. Have you tried tried placing the tag in a different place? I had to move mine around until it worked.

Yes, working on that right now, placed it somewhere else temporarily to see how the results come out. Thanks!

Sounds like you are trying to do HTML verification instead of Meta verification on the Bing site. Your page either doesn't exist or is inaccessible and it's not looking for your meta tag.
