Hi Munish,

Here is a link to Yahoo! Site Explorer https://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/ which will allow you to verify your site.

Here is a link to a blog post that explains the tool further: http://www.organicstats.com/blog/inde...

I hope this helps you verify your site.

Information on yahoo's site explorer abt authentication

To authenticate your site ownership, you can either add a META tag to your home page, or upload a verification file to your site, please follow the instructions below.

To upload a verification file to your site,

DOWNLOAD an authentication key (DO NOT change the file name or content):
If you have a problem with downloading the authentication key, please create a text file named y_key_487abb918dc03979.html, then put this string c320e5ad176f0746 into the file.

Upload the verification file to your site.
Please upload the key file that you downloaded or created yourself at the root level of your site directory.
The expected file path is http://www.indianhunks.synthasite.com...

When the file is uploaded, please click the button below to let us know that the authentication key is in place. We will authenticate your site within 24 hours.

To add a META tag to your home page,

Copy the META tag listed below and paste it in your site's home page in the first section of the page, before the first section.

When the META tag is added, please click the button below to let us know that the META tag is in place. We will authenticate your site within 24 hours.

Please! make me clear any one of the above methods

Hello, I have added google to my site but now want to add yahoo. The file I need to upload to my site is a html file but it won't let me do this. How can I get around it? If I add the mehta tag for my site on my homepage it dissapears. Is there a way to add the mehta tag to my home page in synthasite?

Thanks,
Sharon

Hi Sharon - validation with Yahoo! requires a metatag or a file uploaded to the root directory which is not currently possible in SynthaSite. You can verify your site with Google Webmaster, you can get more info on this post: http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite...

Ok... Everyone was close. But here is what you do for Yahoo validation. request the meta Y=Key. copy and Paste only the letter and number part of the key. key looks like this (don't uses this one) copy&paste only this part d550e623fe84348b to the Description in the properties on the right side of the page. save changes and update site. You'll get an error message just cancel. go back to the Yahoo authentication and authenticate. I don't know why SynthaSite shows error,just ignore it, But the validation does work. Good Luck.

Hi Luis,

We recommend using Google Webmaster - To verify your site with Google Webmaster you need to use the meta tag option. It is very important that you copy the correct portion of the tag in order to be successful. Copy only the letter/number string between the quotation marks and paste it in the designated field in the Properties sidebar.

For detailed, step-by-step, instructions on how to verify your site with Google Webmaster and submit a sitemap, please see our Google Webmaster Tutorial - http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/g.... Please use our instructions and not Google's. Google's are written on the assumption that you are coding the website from scratch. Our instructions are written to work specifically with SynthaSite.

If you have any difficulty with this, please let us know.

Thank you very much

but my question was how can I verify mi site on yahoo regarding the topic of this page because the info on the many answers I read here are very confusing

Now I a have another bunch of questions lol;)

1.- I have already put the googlewebmasters code in place and my site has been verified, all though if i google apolo69 i dont get my page :(, this was the first thing I did like a month ago

2.- I want to verify my site on yahoo, how can I do this?

I ́ve read the article
http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite...

but I get confused, they said I have tu put the metafile on the root directory of my page but how do I upload it and where? or do I only need to put number tag in the description part of my index page?

I went to https://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com... and put my site www.apolo69.synthasite.com but my status its failed cause they didnt found the metafile, I tried to upload it, where I upload all the files for my page,(file manager in my page) but I recive an error that because its a html file and I cant upload it. how should I upload it?

3.- how do i verify my site with msnlivesearch?

I tried to do it in
http://webmaster.live.com/webmaster/W...

and also i have upload the xml file with the file manager in my page hope you can help me with this.

I dont know if this is the better way to do things, I know google its the leader in serach engines, but I have done everything you advise, since a month a go or so, and its the time that if you google apolo69 google dont find my page, it founds a lot of pages regarding offers i have placed in diferent pages like craiglist but you cant find my page directly, so I thought that the best way to go was to verify my site in all the searh engines, this will give me more exposure for sure.

I found this http://www.dmoz.org/add.html and i think its a great resourse the only problem its that I had send my url, they said they do updates in their database weekly and it has been 2 weeks almost 3 since i suggest my site and its still not found, but they work with all the major search engines so I think this is great, if you have any suggestions on this engine i will appreciate it

Thanks for your patience have a great weekend

Best Regards

Luis
