Authentication error RRS feed

  • Question


    Hi, I guess the same questions were already asked here again and again, but I got an error message "We weren't able to authenticate the website" when I tried to authenticate my blog. I added the meta tag to <head> section of the top page of my blog (http://blog.livedoor.jp/syoshii/ : sorry Japanese only) but it didn't work. I didn't have this problem on other search engines such as Google and Yahoo. Could anybody help me to complete the authentication process successfully?

  • I checked the meta tag on my blog again and it was there, at the <head> section, absolutely the same tag as shown at Webmaster Tools.


    <meta name="msvalidate.01" content="66661F6823554265AA521748F12C72C3" />


    I just retried the verification but it failed again.

    I have another blog (different provider) and I did the same verification process, then it went all right, no problem.

    Any thought?

    The blog I'm using doesn't support xml/text files FTP to root directory so I can't use verification by xml file. It is XHTML so I understand I don't have to delete  /> . Any other thought?

  • Yes, the situation is not changed at all. Actually I tried it 3 minutes ago but still no good.

  • I thought I read in another thread that Live Search and some other search engines had trouble (or would not) index websites with index pages that were more than two subfolders away from the root.  Could that be the problem with this blog?  Or did I just imagine reading that constraint?
