You must register an account with which to associate your website(s).

Go to your profile.

Click on the My Sites menu tab.

Enter your site's domain name in the text input box. Click Add. You should now see that WOT added the domain to your sites list.

Click on the [verify] link. You will be presented with a drop-down select menu with the following two choices:

  • 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.

If our servers cannot access the verification file, the problem is usually due to 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 is failing for your site.

 This choice 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.
