Baidu Webmaster Verification

Baidu Ziyuan (Baidu Webmaster Tools) identifies and recommends critical SEO best practices and solutions unique to your site to improve your visibility on the most-used search engine in China.

Browsing Baidu website will be like some alien-thingy because the website only available in Chinese language..

.. However Baidu is your only chance to get high-quality traffic from China's behemoth population because Google and Bing are almost non-existent for China audience.

Thus keep in mind that you might need a different browser other than Google Chrome for site submission, because once again: Google, Facebook, etc are not welcome in China and Chrome browser is from Google.

Step #1: Register for a new Baidu Webmaster Tools account here: https://passport.baidu.com/v2/?reg

Image - Screenshot

Step #2:  As shown in the above picture enter email id, password for your account, verification code displayed, accept Baidu user agreement and click on the register button.

You will receive a success message saying that the verification mail has been sent to your email id. You can also choose mobile number as a user id for registration if you are residing at China having local phone number.

Note: Sometime Baidu asks for SMS verification if it suspects a spam registration. You can get SMS verification code on your own mobile number by choosing the country from the drop-down. After clicking the verification email sometimes you may need to enter the verification CAPTCHA code in simplified Chinese characters. Use Google translate handwrite option to enter the characters using mouse and then copy/paste the actual character in the verification form.

Step #3: Activate your account by clicking the confirmation link received in your email and log in to Baidu Webmaster Tools account here: https://ziyuan.baidu.com/login/index?u=/site/index

Step #4: As shown in the picture above, choose normal login option, enter your email id, password and click on the submit button to login to your account. Remember to enter mobile number as user id if you have registered using your mobile number in the previous step.

Step #5: After login select "Add New Site" button and enter correct URL in the subsequent screen. Note http and https versions are considered as two different sites; hence add your correct site with or without www.
