Create a Yahoo Email ID by visiting www.yahoo.com . Hopes that all of you have at least one Yahoo ID. So keep one ready with you and jump to Step B
Go to Yahoo Site Explorer . Click on the 'Sign in' link which is at the top of the page. Now, ‘Sign In’ with your Yahoo Id and password that we have created in Step A. If you already have a Yahoo Account, then login with that. After login, you will reach a page, where you can see a space provided for Adding your URL.
Type the name (URL)of your blog in the box and click on the tab” Add My Site” . Now you can see that name( URL) of your blog or website will appear in a table on that page. Now click on the name of your blog or website which you submitted.
When you click on the name (URL) of your blog, you will reach a page where you can see a tab “ Authenticate”. Authenticate is nothing but Verifying the ownership of your blog or website.
Here you can see, Yahoo will ask, “ How you Authenticate your site”? Click on “ By adding a Meta tag to my homepage”. Now you will get the Meta tag for authentication, which is given in bold letters, starting with < and ending with >. Copy the META tag to Notepad . Don't close the window or don't logout.
Now open another browser window and login to the Dashboard of your blog or website.For Blogspot users, ( others may directly go to EDIT HTML portion of their website) after login you will reach “Dash Board”, select “Layout” and then “Edit HTML”
This will bring you to the template code. First of all, download a copy of your TEMPLATE to your computer as a BACK UP. This will help you to retain your old settings and layout in case you make any mistake.
Copy the Meta tag from Notepad and paste it in your site's HTML in the first <head> section of the page, before the first <body> section.
When you look into the EDIT HTML section of your blog, you can see <head> portion within the first few lines and its better to paste the Meta tag just below that.
Now save template and View Blog in a new Window.This will help to get Search Engine Optimization,blog promotion,more traffic,SEO, free tips,techniques and high rankings
Now go back to STEP D and click on the button “Ready to Authenticate”. Now you can see a message that your Site is verified. Some times,you will get a message saying that 'Your site is pending authentication' . Don’t worry, the verification may take sometime.
Now Click on “My Sites” ( you can see this in the left top section of the page,under “Site Explorer” tab). Then click on your blog URL and you will reach a page where you can see Verification status of your blog. In the same page, look to left side section, where you can see many tabs like,”Statistics”, “Crawl Errors”, “Feeds”,”Authentication” and “Actions”.
Click on “Feeds” .
Here you had to give the Feed URL of your blog or your website.The below given is my Feed URL, you can make similar Feed URL by replacing the name of my blog.( by replacing the purple in color and bold)
Here your half job is already done. So just Type “ feeds/posts/default” in the space given after your URL and Click on “Add Feed”.
