Webmaster tools verification for Django

Project Description

This application allows various webmaster tools to verify that a django site is managed by you.

The only supported method of verification is by accessing a file on your server.

Supported services:


Get django-webmaster-verification into your python path:

pip install django-webmaster-verification

Add webmaster_verification to your INSTALLED_APPS in


Add webmaster_verification to your root urlconf (

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    url(r'', include('webmaster_verification.urls')),

Add settings just as:

    'bing': '<bing verification code>',
    'google': '<google verification code>',
    'majestic': '<majestic verification code>',
    'yandex': '<yandex verification code>',
    'alexa': '<alexa verification code>',

The codes are alphanumeric and don’t include suffixes like ‘html’, e.g. 847e1f379a99c28a for google, not 847e1f379a99c28a.html.

Multiple codes are supported as well, except for bing:

    'bing': '<bing verification code>',
    'google': (
            '<google verification code 1>',
            '<google verification code 2>',
    'majestic': (
            '<majestic verification code 1>',
            '<majestic verification code 2>',
    'yandex': (
            '<yandex verification code 1>',
            '<yandex verification code 2>',
    'alexa': (
            '<alexa verification code 1>',
            '<alexa verification code 2>',


Python 2.6 users will have to install argparse and importlib manually. I’m too lazy to add that logic to the setup script right now.

As Bing always accesses the same verification file I’m not sure if it’s possible to support more than one code for it. Please let me know if yes, and how, as I don’t really use their tools.

For Yandex only the .txt file method is supported, but adding support for .html should be trivial if you need it.

The Alexa codes I saw all had a length of 27 characters, so that’s what this app assumes is used. Please let me know if your codes differ and I need to modify the app.
