    Hello,

    I am trying to verify my site with Bing Webmaster but the template won’t allow me to upload xml files for security reasons and I don’t know where I can edit the <head> section of my default webpage.

    Below are the 2 options that Bing gives me, could you please give me directions on how to complete this?

    Thank you!

    Option 1: Place an XML file on your web server

    Download BingSiteAuth.xml

    Upload the file to http://thenhlking.com/BingSiteAuth.xml

    Confirm successful upload by visiting http://thenhlking.com/BingSiteAuth.xml in your browser

    Option 2: Copy and paste a tag in your default webpage

    You can add a <meta> tag containing the authentication code to the <head> section of your default webpage.

    <meta name=”msvalidate.01″ content=”CAF606A0C5707E116A7EE8DA5FEA9968″ />

    Show me an example

    <html>

    <head>

    <meta name=”msvalidate.01″ content=”CAF606A0C5707E116A7EE8DA5FEA9968″ />

    <title>Your SEO optimized title</title>

    </head>

    <body>

    page contents

    </body>

    </html>

    Hey,

    you can edit the head section in header.php. You can insert the code somewhere before the closing head tag. Tools like: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-seo/ offer an option to insert the code via backend.

    Hi,

    Where is the header.php located? Could you give me the exact steps?
