  • HTML file
    1. Download the .html file and upload it to http://YOUR_DOMAIN.COM. Do not edit the filename or contents.
    2. Make sure that you can view http://YOUR_DOMAIN.COM/mywot_uploaded_file.html in your browser before verifying your site.
    3. Once the file is viewable, return to your profile and click the Verify submit button

Usually if our servers cannot access the verification file, the problem is with an incorrectly configured web server on the other end. Sometimes web servers refuse to serve clients who don't send some specific headers in the request, for example. Please send us a support request and we'll see why it's failing for your site.

 This requires having FTP access
  • Meta tag
    1. Copy the meta tag below, and paste it into your site's home page.
      It should go in the <head> section, before the first <body> section.
      <meta name="wot-verification" content="mywot_generated_code"/>
    2. Return to your profile and click the Verify submit button
 You can use your CMS control panel to edit your page and insert the META tag
 or you can FTP your modified page.
