Verify Your Blog on MyBlogLog

Posted by cotojo on January 22, 2008

MyBlogLog (MBL) have now come up with a solution to stop others interfering with, infecting and taking over others blogs.

It’s called ‘Verify My Site’ and by creating a post with MyBlogLog Verification as the title, MyBlogLog Verificaton in the tags, and entering a piece of code then publish the post then click the link on MBL to verify that it is yours and no one else can access it….all rights remain with the individual only and any co-authors that they may add.

All you have to do is log into MBL, click on your blog name and to the right where it says ‘Authors’ there is now a link called ‘Verify My Site’. Click on this and there is a small piece of code to enter into a new blog post….it must be posted in the html / source or code depending upon which platform you are using.

Open another window and open your blog, create a new post with MyBlogLog Verification as the title, and also as tags/labels and enter the code.

Publish your post, return to the MBL page and then click on ‘Authenticate’  Once it has found your post it will show you that is has been authenticated and you can safely delete the post and your blog on MBL will have a green checkmark beside it.

MyBlogLog Verified Checkmark

This was introduced on Saturday due to the problems that had been created and hopefully it will lead to a safer experience for all of us.

    If your site problems continue keep trying the verification, it takes a while sometimes. Any problems just get back to me.
    Have a wonderful day,

    Please drop in for a sec at Maryannaville, k? I read a post that mentioned your name.

  14. Norm said

    Hi Colin! I have compliments tag for you in my site in

  15. cotojo said

    Shoshana – It sounds as though you are doing it right, posting into ‘code’ and then publish. Sometimes it takes a while, I have verified 3 of my blogs so far but another one I am still trying to authenticate
    So hang in there and leave the post on your blog, go back to MBL now and then, click on your blog then click ‘Verify my site’ and then ‘Authenticate’
    As it’s new they may be getting bombarded, so it may take a little while, just perservere with it 🙂

  17. Shoshana Rose said

    I tried it again Colin and again it did not work 😦 Perhaps I am doing it wrong? I copied the code and pasted it into the code section of the post on my wordpress blog. I put MyBlogLog Verification in the post title, then published. Am I missing any steps?



  18. Hey Colin, thanks for the post! I didn’t know about this, must get my blogs verified asap!

    Also, I tagged u with a meme, come share ur cartoon character with me, have fun!

    Sue – Once in MBL you need to click on each blog individually, and where it shows Authors there are 2 links there, one to Add co-author and below that Verify your site.
    Just click the link and follow the instructions 🙂

    I did as you said and posted the html link in a blog post last night, but when I click on the authenticate button on MBL, it kicks back a red alert that says the link was not found! Grr!
    Can you help me?
