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 = [
    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>',


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.
