SUGGESTION: Ability to link Hubpages subdomains 2 Bing Webmaster tools

    Hubpages Sub-domains can be linked to Google Webmaster Tools via Google Analytics . However there doesn't seem to be a way to connect a HP sub-domain to Bing Webmaster tools because the methods that are used in Bing Webmaster tools to verify a site cannot be used with HP subdomains . It would be great if Hubpages would find a way around this allowing HP subdomains to be verified and linked to Bing Webmaster tools.

    Thanks for the suggestion, atein. This is something that we will definitely keep in mind for the future.

    This problem still exists and it is a HUGE problem. 

    The Bing instructions say to:
    Option 1
    Download BingSiteAuth.xml
    Upload the file to http://writerfox.hubpages.com/BingSiteAuth.xml
    Confirm successful upload by visiting http://writerfox.hubpages.com/BingSiteAuth.xml in your browser
    Click the verify button below


    Option 2

    You can add a <meta> tag containing the authentication code to the <head> section of your default webpage.
    <meta name="msvalidate.01" content="FE4BDEFD6BA48F7E999798A9FA720BA2" />
    An example:
            <meta name="msvalidate.01" content="FE4BDEFD6BA48F7E999798A9FA720BA2" />
            <title>Your SEO optimized title</title>
            page contents


    Option 3

    Add CNAME (alias) record with name 270dc30887bcf6f68fb96695151dfb9e and value verify.bing.com.
    So your DNS provider will resolve host 270dc30887bcf6f68fb96695151dfb9e.writerfox.hubpages.com to verify.bing.com.
    How to add a CNAME record to: 'Your DNS Provider'

    Is Hubpages still working on this?

    It would be nice since Bing is sending me more traffic than Google now.

    I am writing in to add my voice to this. I would LOVE to add my page to Bink and I apparently can't which I'm not thrilled about.

    This was brought up before awhile back. Someone on HP said it might be a possibility especially if lots of people were interested. I'm glad HP looks favorable to the possibility.

    I am glad as well. I really hope this is something that can be fixed...
