Office 365 Sharepoint Online 2010 Public Site – Verify Your Site (Webmaster Tools etc).

Generate the Office 365 compatible meta tag code needed to verify your site with major search engines in 2 steps with our easy to use generator. You can also use it to add javascripts to the page’s -head- section and create the code for a favicon-like this too »
To add a meta tag verification to theof your site, the meta tag code has to be URL ENCODED for it to be recognized as valid by the search engine/verifying site. Simply pasting the code provided in the site’s SEO box won’t work. This generator will “encode the code” so it works. It can alse be used for ANY code you want to be in theof your site. Here’s how:

1/ Copy the search engine or other verification code
Log into your search engine account
Select “meta tag” as the verification method
You’ll get a piece of code like this:

Copy it – this is your unique verification key.

2/ Generate your code
Paste the key into the appropriate box in our generator form below RIGHT AFTER THE ” />.
You can do one search engine or all 3 at once
IMPORTANT: REMOVE THE FINAL CLOSING TAG which should look like this: “/>
This gets added automatically so leaving it will duplicate it and the code won’t work!
So paste the code like this:Click “Encode” and copy the output code from the box
Paste the output on a new line in the “keywords” box under the SEO tab for your home page (“page properties”).
When done, go back to the search engine site and click “get verified”.

Favicon
A favicon is the little image you see to the left of the address bar, tab titles and in bookmarks/history. The code to add one can easily be added to theof your site using the encoder. If you want one, create a 16x16px image. Save it as “favicon.ico”. Upload it to your DOCUMENTS GALLERY (NOT the image gallery!) Repeat the above routine for meta tag code, except use this exact code: on the end!

Adding javascripts to thesection. Though not always necessary, some scripts suggest you place them in the”head” section of your pages. You can use the same technique outlined here to do that: Paste your complete javascript or link code into the encoder and append the red part to make sure it works. So it would look like this:you see in the box below in place and paste your code right after it!!
