Ping Your Blog to Get Indexed in Search Engines Quickly
We always want our posts to get indexed by Search Engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo) quickly, don’t we? But it doesn’t happen quickly when you are running a new blog. Sometimes search engine bot takes time to crawl your site and index your new posts.
So the question is how can you ensure that it happens as soon as possible? One of the easiest ways to do that is ping your URLs on pinging service sites.
What is Ping?
Ping service allows you to notify blog directories and search engines that your blog has been updated. It’s XML-RPC-based push mechanism that sends signal to the ping server that your blog has been updated with new contents.
Though WordPress has a default auto ping update service, I would suggest you to ping your blog posts manually when your blog is new.
List of Free Ping Service
Here is a list of Free Ping Service that you can use to notify search engine about your new blog posts.
Now let’s see how to ping your URLs. At first, go to the Ping service site (say, pingomatic.com). Then enter your blog name, Blog homepage, RSS URL and check all ping services. And click on ‘Send Ping’.
Use other ping services on the same way.
