Hi Holly,

You mention Google and Bing/Yahoo, so I presume you wish to register your site ultimately for their respective search engines.

The process for Google Webmasters verification is in this Tutorial with pictures

For the similar process of verifying with Bing/Yahoo there is an instruction on a recent thread. If you are using Yola Free subscription then you cannot verify with Bing/Yahoo as you don't have access to the necessary requremtn of the site structure. You can try to submit your URL directly and see if this will effect the veru=ification but don't think that it is now likely.

For Bronze and Silver Yola subscriptions with Bing/Yahoo, try this process Verify Ownership of your site with Bing Sorry...No pics. happy to help further if you need.
