Microsoft Bing Simplifies Site Verification
August 23, 2019 MadMarTech

Bing announced on Aug 21 that you can now verify your site using domain connect. Unlike the previous times where you had to insert a tag on all pages of your website, you now have to log in to your hosting providers account for verification. Once you log in, Bing will verify within a few seconds. It is currently compatible with GoDaddy, 1&1, media temple and Plesk. However, more DNS providers will be added soon.

It is pretty easy to implement this process:

Step1: Sign up or Sign in to Webmaster tools:

Step2: Add your site for verification.
