WordPress claims blog verifications with search-engines is done automatically for users. Bing want files uploaded to the root directory or sitemaps submited. And none of this works!! With Google you can set up a private page with code and get verified. I couldn't find this techinique anywhere in the vast help support at WordPress. It took a friend of mine to teach me that technique. SE's and WordPress send users into a big circle jerk and the end users winds up no where but dazed and confused.
Meanwhile a small business owner is left hanging in limbo with a blog no one can find.
The blog I need help with is athomasimage.wordpress.com.
