  • Hi,

     

    the file is case sensitive. If you have access to your header, you can try the meta tag option.

  • did you ?

     

    Add a file to the root directory of your site.

    File name: LiveSearchSiteAuth.xml

    File contents: ( place this code inside the xml file ) easiest way is to create a text document and file save as / save file type all files.

     

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <users>
    <user>yourwebmastercodefromwebmastertoolshere</user>
    </users>

     

    can you load the sitemap from your webpage?

     

    http://yourwebpages.com/LiveSearchSiteAuth.xml ?

     

    its probly case sensitive.
