Ping Your Blog to Increase Your Website Traffic!

Pinging services allow you to automatically notify blog directories and search engines that your blog has been updated.

Ping Your Blog When You Have Updated Content!

There are a few reasons that you should be pinging your blog… whenever a blog pings, many background processes happen which will get your blog quickly indexed by search engines as well as bring additional traffic from many other sources.

WordPress is known to ping your blog by default each and every time you click on the ‘Update’ button. This can cause a red flag for the search engines as spam, and possibly get your site banned. The solution to this issue is to add the plug-in MaxBlogPress, that will allow you to update your page within a period of time that you specify, without your site being pinged each time you click the Update button.

With this plug-in, you can add a large amount of ping sites to the MaxBlogPress Ping Optimizer box. I personally have only added the “Update Services” Codex list to the Ping Optimizer (this link is available on your WordPress Dashboard > Settings > Writing, then at the bottom of the page where it says Update Services), the remainder I go to each web site listed below and manually ping by putting my URL in the box.

Here is a list of web sites that I recommend to manually ping your updated blog. This list of 5 sites may not seem like much, but Pingler alone pings 84 websites, the others ping anywhere from 20 to 50 sites each spreading the word far and wide.

Here is My Blog Pinging List!

Closing Comments about the Blog Pinging List!

Keep in mind that the bigger your ping list for your blog, the greater the chances of receiving traffic from those sources, so if you find additional sites, add them to your MaxBlogPress Ping Optimizer box.

    I have a question. I have onlywire installed on my wordpress blog. Does this automatically send out my post that would be viewed as spam?

    Thanks for the great information. I use, but didn’t know about the others. Will use them now.

    Have a very Happy New Year!!!

    • John Engle says:

      Hi Karen,

      Pingler is quite the awesome Pinging site.

      To answer your question about Onlywire, I apologize, but I am not sure about what it does for the blogger, I don’t use it. I will look into this, and get back with you here in a couple of days to what Onlywire does for those that use it.

      Thank You for stopping by, and Happy New Year to you too!

      John Engle

  19. Thanks very much John. I had no clue about this. I just added to my tool chest. Have a great New Year my friend!

      Hey David,

      There are many people out there that don’t know about pinging their blog… thanks to the pinging services that I mentioned, I have gone from over 12 million in my Alexa Traffic Ranking when I first started this blog on Sept. 23rd of this year, to a 335,388 as of yesterday Dec. 3th.

      This translates to 3 months and 1 week of being online… this happens to fall in to the same Traffic Popularity as many blog owners that have been online for anywhere from 1 to 2 years… my girlfriend says that this is quite an accomplishment.

      I am a humble guy that does not ever brag about my accomplishments, but my girlfriend said that I needed to toot my own horn every once in a while, or people will never know. If you are wondering why you are seeing archives dating back to July of this year, it’s because I integrated them into this blog from another site.

      Thank You for stopping by David, and You Have an Awesome New Years too!

  20. Thanks so much for sharing this great info. I’ve seen a post on this before, but I didn’t really understand a lot about it until it was broken down this way. Now I see why it’s so important to get MaxBlogPress.

    • John Engle says:

      Hi Delicia,

      Thank you for the nice words… I do try very hard to break my articles down to information that people can understand easily. I would like the same when I read other people’s articles… if they are speaking too technical, or don’t offer enough information about their subject to understand, I can’t follow.

      MaxBlogPress has helped me so I don’t continue to update and ping at the same time when I continually make a change, then check it, then come back and make another change, etc.

      Before I discovered the MaxBlogPress plug-in, I used to update my draft, then view it before I would actually hit the Publish button. Doing this supposedly would not ping each time I pressed the Save Draft button.

      This plug-in saves me from making mistakes, plus allows me to update several pages within the time-frame I specify without continually pining each time I update a different page.

      Thank you for stopping by!

  21. I didn’t know that you could be seen as spam by updating your post too much… thanks for the info!

    • John Engle says:

      Hey Kevin,

      To be completely honest with you, even though I’ve been doing SEO for years, I am only 6 months new to blogging, so I wasn’t aware of this until recently!

      I am still in the learning stages when it comes to the blogging theme… what it’s capabilities are, and its downfalls.

      Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment!
