  • Tutorial: How to sign up for a Weibo Account

    For anyone who don’t know Weibo, it’s like Twitter but in Chinese and has lot more functions! Weibo is where I get about 90% of my information about Ancient Chinese Series, whether it’s songs, MVs, downloads, pictures or news, it’s the source for everything! Also, most series or actors have an official Weibo that you can watch them on!

    Go to the main page.


    Enter your details.


    Enter your cell phone for mobile activation, you need to choose what country you’re from.


    Click on the button so that it sends you the activation code.


    Wait a minute and check your phone, and enter the code in.


    Enter some personal info.


    Select your interests.

    Below is the old registration process

    Visit the Weibo website and you should see this page.

    Click the green button to register a new account.

    Enter your Details!

    This is where you enter your details like email address, password and username. Note that your real name, passport and school are optional. Also, Weibo will not share this information!

    Yep, you have to do that for most things you register.

    Sign in your email and you should have gotten an email from Weibo with a link. Click the link!

  • Bjorn says

    2013-09-30 10:16:43

    Looks like I have solved the problem. I managed to translate some of the Chinese and was able to get a @sina.com account. Using this email as my username, I can now sign in to my account.

  • Bjorn says

    2013-09-30 08:41:21

    I have successfully signed up to Weido, using my mobile number (Australian). I received an email asking me to click on a verification link. Everything went fine and my site is up and running. However I have a problem when I want to sign in again, as it doesn’t let me sign in. I use the correct password and my email address (hotmail address). The only way I can sign in is to use the “forgot password”. That way with entering my mobile number and get a verification code. Setting a new password and enter the verification code, I manage to get signed in again. Any idea why it doesn’t accept my email as username?

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-10-01 08:26:55

      Hmm that’s so strange that it won’t let you sign in. I wonder why… Cos whenever I sign in, it just works when I type my email, but oh wait I am so glad you fixed it. That’s brilliant!!!
      OMG you’re from Australia? Same here, or I lived there for ages!!

  • Albun says

    2013-09-27 12:05:34

    OMG thank you for the great tutorial!!! my country isn’t on the list either, but I tried the yahoo.ca thing and it really did bypass everything. Maybe put it up on the tutorial so that people who don’t read the comments can try it?

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-09-29 03:32:40

      ARGH that’s terrible your country isn’t on it. I wish they can open it to more countries… WOW :O OMG I can’t believe .ca actually worked. I will try and update the tutorial to include that useful bit of info :D

  • junghwa says

    2013-09-12 12:21:08

    This really helped ^^
    Unforunately when I went to verify it through email it says it can’t verify so I should email them and it should work
    That didn’t work either and it says if you don’t verify usig the link wihin 2 days to reregister
    That doesn’t work either since it says my email is taken
    Um do you know of any way to fix this?
    I can’t do anything except log in.
    I can’t even follow people ;A;

      http://www.weibo.com/signup/mobile.php?lang=en-us‎ try clicking this. or searching on google “how to make weibo account new” it will allow you to sign up without themm asking for your number. im really desperate to make an account on weibo then i accidentally click that link. hope it will help. :) ))))

    thx for this good article but phone verification cant sent sms code to my country, its not in the list…how to solve it

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-08-03 08:16:09

      Sadly I think the only way is to get an online phone number or a friend who lives in one of the countries to do it.

    • Anonymous says

      2013-09-16 12:14:48

      hey! that’s my problem too before. but i’ve accidentally click this link. i think it’s the old way to make a weibo account when they are still asking for an email address. :) ))))) im raelly happy now.

  • Mikiru says

    2013-07-22 08:44:41

    Just want to know…to get the sms code, is it free to get it on your phone or will it come out on the bill later?

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-07-23 04:59:12

      I don’t think you will be billed cos I’ve never recieved a bill for a code i recieve from these kinds of programs/sites.

  • najwa says

    2013-07-20 01:00:35

    i want to have a weibo account but they’r asking for a phone number..but my country doesn’t exist on there short list..so can you help me???

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-07-21 08:26:51

      Hmm that’s hard, I guess you need to get a friend who’s from one of the countries to do it for you? I’m not sure what you can do if the country’s not listed, sorry.

  • milla says

    2013-07-19 06:40:16

    is there nothing I can do if my country is not on the country list? I am from Norway.

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-07-19 11:06:15

      Hmmm unfortunately I don’t think there’s much you can do if your country isn’t listed, perhaps there are online ways of getting a phone number from these countries? Do you have friends who live in any of the mentioned countries that can help you?

  •   says

    2013-06-07 07:39:58


    Would you mind checking out the new registration process? It asks for SMS verification even if you’re using the email signup. Even though my country is in the list, it keeps saying that the number I put in isn’t in the right format (that’s what google translate tells me at least), so they won’t give me the activation code. Is there some way to bypass the whole cell phone thing? Thanks for any help!

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-06-07 11:52:49

      I will try and look into this when I get a chance. I’m a bit busy these days due to a lot of work I have to do, so please remind me if I forget><

    •   says

      2013-06-08 01:21:59

      Not sure if I’m replying to the right thing but thank you so much for the consideration!

    •   says

      2013-06-28 07:21:34

      Here’s a reminder if you forgot/if I am replying right. If you’re still busy, would you know of anywhere that provides service for helping people sign up? The only thing I want an account for is to download things since people upload their files on a site that requires such messed up registration for some reason…
      Thanks to anyone who can help!

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-06-29 12:15:10

      I just updated the tutorial with the latest. You will need a phone from one of the countries though, I won’t be able to help you further. I just tried with a USA phone and it worked.

    •   says

      2013-06-29 05:50:00

      Thank you so much for the update! Something really strange happened, though: I tried signing up with three different live.com emails, but kept getting a pop up that said something like (according to google translate) “You’re registering too frequently, take a break” even though it’s been weeks since I’ve tried. I tried it again with a yahoo.ca email, and not only did it work–it bypassed the SMS verification entirely. There didn’t seem to be a ‘an activation email was sent to your account’ screen (it just skipped right to picking your interests), though that email did appear a few minutes later. Not sure if it’s the .ca thing, but people who don’t have their countries on the list or don’t want to use SMS might want to try using a yahoo email.

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-06-30 09:49:32

      Wow I am really glad that it worked at the end for you!
      Thanks for the tip on the .ca email! I really hope that can bypass the SMS!!

  • wolf18 says

    2013-06-03 09:04:09

    That’s why I can’t create a weibo blog. They asked me a phone number on China or USA… They only accept phone number from a short list they gave. :( Unfortunately, my country isn’t in this list. :3

    P/s: Why I can’t reply under your comment?

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-06-03 12:07:28

      Hmmm that’s strange, I’m not sure why you can’t reply under mine. Maybe just something silly with the scripts of the site.
      Is there any services online you can get a temp US number?

  • wolf18 says

    2013-05-30 05:34:08

    I don’t know why. But weibo ask my mobile number to verify account?? Please, help me!

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-05-30 02:58:09

      That’s really strange, I’ve never been asked for a mobile number. Perhaps you can just enter it? It may be like google, you have to verify with a code.

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-06-29 12:24:08

      Can you tell me which country you are from? You will need a phone number from the countries… Sadly!

      Hi! It’s me again. I stumbled upon this Chinese website called 5sing but I’m having trouble creating an account. Do you think you can create a tutorial for me? If you can that would be great. Thanks in advance!

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-05-16 12:08:37

      OHH OMG funny that you mention it, I did actually make a tutorial for 5sing, it’s just stuck in my drafts so I’ll try and find it to post for you soon :D Or perhaps i can share the draft with you , though you will need to read it within a few hours :D

    • whitepigeon says

      2013-05-20 01:31:37

      It doesn’t matter to me. If you want to post it up on your website that’s fine. If you want to send it through email then that’s fine too. Whatever is better for you is good for me.

  • chinesecrossfire says

    2013-03-26 03:05:24

    Yes that was me. I think for most chinese overseas students the English vocabularies is a big problem because we know about the professional words and terms of our major very well but we donnot much about some words about daily lifes.LOL because of lack of using it is very easy to forget the new words. Honestly at first I wanted to see how you translate the special chinese cultural words>333 I have great curiousty about English though I havenot been enough good on oral but I am better on reading and listening. I think with more time I can be better^^

    • chinesecrossfire says

      2013-03-25 11:29:15

      Yeahhh^^ I always downloaded the new episode on Saturday to watch and waited for your update of english sub on youtube<3333 because I would like to watch and study English at the same time and it is the reason I found your channel at first hahaha. I ever left some comments to talk about why the fourth season is called"万里长城“ I said because it is the time when the Qin Dynasty is in its prime time after which it started to decline. And I also left my email address for someone who needed the music of Qin's moon. Have you remembered me? Then I left comments in your podcast video and you said it was much better to come here^^

    • sapphiresky says

      2013-03-26 05:22:28

      WOOO REALLY? AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW THAT IS SO SO SO AMAZING TO HEAR!! I never knew that. OMG i am SO HAPPY you were watching my youtube channel with Qin’s Moon. I had so much fun sharing this show with people. I REALLY love it so msuch and cannot wait until season 5 comes out.
      That’s amazing you wanted to study english, if there’s anything I can do, please let me know cos I wanna help! I want to study more Chinese LOL
      OHHH WHOAAAAA!!!! YOU DID? that was you? I REMEMBER your comment about the prime time of the Qin Dynasty, that gave me a lot of insight!!! THANK YOU for that.
      YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS AHHHH now I remember completely about emailing you about QM music, OMG WOOWOWOWWWWW loll YES now I remember your email too LOL it’s all coming back to me. ROFL i have such a short memory sometimes, esp lately with the vacation. I totally forgot about it HAHAHAAA.

Thank you so much, it means a lot to hear that people are enjoying Wuxia type of websites. I felt the same too that there wasn’t a lot of fans that were making sites just for Wuxia.
      How did you find it? And THANKS for leaving a message here!!! It totally made me jump in excitement, haha!!
