In their infinite wisdom, BING has decided to change their PPC platform a bit. Beginning April 1st, if you want to track conversions you must use their new tag which must be placed in the "head" and not in the "body" as it is now. They give you two options or types of tags: one is a "java script" tag and one is an "image source" tag (apparently for platforms that do not support java) 

so, i know that placing meta tag verification in the head of my home page (e.g. google webmaster tools) works just fine, but what about placing this new BING tag on a particular page-namely my contact form page? will that work? will it create a conflict of some sort if its Java? or will using the Image Source tag be ok?

i can post the tags if necessary. 

would like to get out in front of this asap so i can avoid any surprises. thanks.

I would think it would be ok. Under the page setting you can load java script on page load. I haven't dealt with this change yet, but if it is standard HTML or JS then it should work.

well now i'm finding out that it can be placed in the body. or, maybe not. such a bunch of morons. so, i put the "image source" variety in the body via html snipet to see if it will work. lets hope so. otherwise, i will have to track BING manually via G Analytics. not looking forward to that.

Bing should tell you if it can see it or not, so you should know pretty quickly
