In this video you’re going to learn how to verify your website with Bing using your Yoast SEO plugin.
I use Google. When I want to find something on the internet I use Google. Doesn’t everyone use Chrome for their browser and Google for their search engine?
When I upgraded to Windows 10 and started using the built in search box they call Cortana I realized that when Windows searches the web it uses the Bing search engine.
So as more people upgrade to Windows 10 and beyond and buy new computers more and more people are going to be using Bing as their search engine.
So if you’re not verified with Bing you could be missing a lot of potential traffic.
And potential traffic means potential sales.
Kyle’s lessons cover creating your Bing Webmaster Tools account so here are some links for you:
So let’s assume that you’ve got the account setup squared away and now you’re ready to verify your website.
At the top of Bing’s dashboard you can Add a Site and once you’ve done that you can verify your site.
Click on “Verify now”
We’re going to use Option 2: Copy and paste a <meta> tab in your default webpage.
But your SEO plugin is going to do the heavy lifting.
The only bit of the code you actually need is the part between the quote marks. So double-click into the code example to highlight the text between the quotes.
Use Ctrl+C to copy. It’s Command + C on a Mac
Now go to your website and hover over Y SEO in your dashboard’s menu and click on Dashboard.
Select the Webmaster Tools tab and use Ctrl+V to paste the code you got from Bing Webmaster Tools. Click Save Changes and you’re done.
