Sign up for bing webmaster tools.

Add your domain, and it will ask you to verify ownership.

I had trouble with uploading the .xml file, and adding a CNAME to DNS (I have a seperate domain provider to Yola)

The other option is to cut and paste some code, to add to the header code.

Copy the code from bing webmaster tools.

Go to your site, click on Site, then Site Settings, then on site tracking code.

On the left should be your google tracking code.

Paste Bing's code on the right hand side, which may well be blank.

Delete the part of the cose with "your site name" or similar.

The final code should look like this:

Click close, and then bing should verify your site shortly afterwards. (you must click button within bing webmaster tools to verify.

Of course Bing and Yahoo will find your site in time, but this will hopefully help someone!

Hope this helps.

Sorry, the forum deleted the code example I added.

It should be:

html
head
meta name="msvalidate.01" content="7AC61FC9DA127360AED781C654525PC3" /
/html

I have omitted < > symbols so that it displays on the forum. These must be included when you apply to your site.

The long alpha numerical code will be uniquely generated in your webmaster account. Copying this example code will not work.
