I have got several emails from my visitors, who can’t complete the site verification process with Baidu webmaster tool. Well, I happened to this situation once today. I hope what I have metioned below could help you.
There are 2 ways to verify your website.
1, Add a file to your root directory of your website, which Baidu will let you download first.
2, Copy a snippet of code like this: <meta name=”baidu-site-verification” content=”*******************” />, which Baidu will show you.
1, Verify it in 6 hours, or you have to redo one of the 2 steps shown above.
2, After you take one way of the above, you should wait several minutes, so that the cache of your website could be cleared and updated.
In my opinion, when you have tried both 2 ways, you still can’t succeed, you might happened to the cache problem, which stops baidu getting the verification process executed.
If not, contact me, I am happy to help you with this.
