    I am having trouble with this, Bing keeps writing "...verification failed."

      I'm not positive, but I don't think you can do this for HubPages since you don't have administrator-level access.  Did Bing ask you to insert some code?

        I do have webmaster status here as a writer, don't I?  Hmm.  Yep, they did say a code would be forthcoming...
        Thanks paxwill, for replying.

    I tried all of that a couple years ago when I first started at Hubpages and there was so much to learn - I simply blew off the code thing and just submitted my articles to the bing and msn directories - but hopefully there will be codes for all of the search engines and hubpages one day - hey that would be a cool thing smile

    What good is this?  I get a good bit of traffic from Bing anyway. Does it really make much difference?  I mean what can one do with such status from this end?smile

    Hubpages already submits its sitemap to sites like Bing, and is crawled continually, so there's no need for us to do that.

    Besides, it's a little strange for us to be trying to do it. "Webmaster" means site owner or admin.

    The real-world analogy: imagine you're renting an apartment. In that case, it would be incorrect to pretend you're the owner of the apartment complex when talking to the utilities company, telling them they need to hook up your apartment to the grid. "Um,'s already hooked up. The whole building is hooked up." smile

      Okay, that explains a lot. But aren't I considered the 'webmaster' of my work here?  I thought that was what it implied.  I suppose I am too new to computers to understand the terminology yet.
      Thanks for explaining it...
