Authenticating site RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was trying to authenticate my site.  I uploaded the xml file with text intact.  Msn still says it "We weren't able to authenticate the website."  I double and triple checked the file still no go.  Anybody else have this problem?

    My site is an Amazon affiliate:  www.rjsbargaincentral.com

    Thanks for any input

  • I tried browsing to http://www.rjsbargaincentral.com/LiveSearchSiteAuth.xml, and I recieved a 404 error. Live Search Webmaster Center won't be able to authenticate your site unless this file is accessible.

     

    Check to make sure the file is in the root of your website and that your host isn't blocking xml files. As an alternative, try using HTML meta tag authentication.

     

    Thanks,
