Ping-O-Matic is a great free service which “The WordPress Foundation” created to allow millions ofÂ pings a day from blogsÂ to ping/notify “Blog Search Engines and Services” likeÂ My Yahoo, Google Blog Search, Feed Burner,Â and over 20 services which you can pick to ping fromÂ when your blog has been updated with new content, so you can get indexed on those search engines and services to get more traffic faster.
According to Ping-O-Matic’s website they ping the most importantÂ Search Engines and Services to tell them your website has been updated.Â You do not have to own a WordPress blog to use Ping-O-Matic. Ping-O-Matic works for Blogspot, Typepad, Tumblr, Drupal, Joomla, Xanga, Live Journal and other blogging platforms.
Ping-O-Matic is a lot better then using those search engine submission forms and services since you do not have to provide an E-mail address, pay anything, type in a captcha code, and confirm your e-mail address to prove you are a human and not a spam bot. All you have to do is fill out the name of your blog, and your blogs link address to ping more then 20 Search Engines and Services related to blogging that your blog has been updated with new content.
If you own a WordPress blog, WordPress automatically pings Ping-O-Matic when you post new content to your blog according to the settings for Writing in WordPress Dashboard.
Ping-O-Matic is easy to use. You just need to fill out two text boxes and one optional text boxÂ on the Ping-O-matic website. The three text boxes are your blogs title, homepage link, and RSS URL which is optionalÂ .Â Click the “Check all” link or pick individual services and search engines to ping. Lastly, you click the “Send Pings” button.
What I like about Ping-O-Matic isÂ I do not have to sign up for an account, or use an e-mail to use the service, so there is no risk of getting unwanted spam or newsletters because you forgot to opt-out of the newsletter check box.
After you use Ping-o-matic to ping blog search engines and services to notify them you update your blog. You can bookmark your results page, soÂ all you have to do is visit yourÂ Ping-O-Matic results page from your bookmarks menu in Internet Explorer, FireFox, Chrome, and other web browser when you post new content on your blogÂ to quickly notify Ping-O-Matic that your blog has been updated. I like to put the bookmark for Ping-O-Matic in my Bookmarks Toolbar in Google Chrome.
Ping-O-Matic can help you bring in more traffic for your blog by notifying blog search engines, and services that you updated your blog with new content. The Search Engines and services will now crawl and index your blog for new content after you pinged them.
