Are You Pinging?

Why should you be pinging your blogs and websites? To let others know that you’ve updated your content of course! Pinging isn’t talked about much these days, because most blogs automatically handle pinging.

So who are we pinging anyways?

Well there are sites that offer pinging services through technology known as “XML-RPC”. When you ping one of these sites, you are sending a signal to their server, notifying them that your site content has updated. Now these sites offering pinging services often allow other sites to “poll” their results, so one can easily identify blogs that are updated through the server.

Pinging is simply another method to get your site indexed quickly and generate more traffic. It’s fast and simple as well. There are hundreds of ping services you could hunt down and send pings to, but that’s not fun nor simple. Which is why I really love this site: Pingler.com

Takes about 30 seconds to fill out the form. Just used it earlier today on a new Blogger blog, which previously had zero promoting done and is not yet indexed in Google. Will update accordingly when it gets updated by Google – from using pinging alone.

  2. Hi Karen

    This service has not been going all that long but I fully agree with you. It is is a great site. So simple to use. I like the feature where it tells you if each ping is successful. It is also very helpful to see the page that shows up. More than once I have typed in the wrong URL and it has shown up on the tile thereby allowing me to run it again.
    Just one word to new users. I find more often than not it does not accept the first captcha , so just do it again and carry on. It will accept each one you do after that if you are doing a few sites.
    Yes indeed , a great service.
