WordPress Ping List 2018 – Best “Update Services” For Quick Index!

Update WordPress Ping List

We always want our blog posts to get indexed by Search Engines as soon as possible. Typically we have to wait for Search Engine bots to crawl our posts and index them.

But there’s a better way – Using WordPress Update Services (Ping Services).

Ping Services are tools that you can use to notify search engines that your blog has been updated with new posts. Ping is an XML-RPC based push mechanism by which a blog notifies a server that its content has been updated.

In my earlier days of blogging, I used to ping my blog URL manually. But it’s time-consuming. Later I came to know about WordPress Update Services.

WordPress Update Services work automatically. When you publish a new post or modify an old post, WordPress automatically notifies the ping sites.

Here I’ll be sharing an updated WordPress Ping List for 2019. And I’ll also show you how to extend WordPress Ping List.

Update WordPress Ping List For 2019

Here is a list of working ping sites which will help you to ping more services. This is the same list that I am using here at RoadToBlogging.com.

Now let’s check the list.


To make this list, I’ve used several sources including this one by WordPress.org.

How To Extend WordPress Ping List

By default, WordPress uses only one ping service – Ping-o-Matic. The best thing is, this single ping service lets many other services know that you’ve updated your site.

But it’s a good idea to extend the services. In fact, it’s one of the important things to do after installing WordPress.

Now let’s see how to extend your ping list.

Go to WordPress Dashboard > Setting and click on ‘Writing’.

WordPress Setting

You will find “Update Services” at the bottom of the page. Just copy the above list and paste it there. Then click on “Save Changes”.

WordPress Ping List

That’s it. You are done. Now WordPress will notify all the above ping services when you publish a new post or modify an existing one.

If you happen to be updating your posts a lot, you can consider using WordPress Ping Optimizer plugin. It controls excessive pinging. However, if you don’t update your posts frequently, you don’t need to use this plugin.

Hope this post helped you to update your ping services.

    Thanks for the Great List of Ping sites. My blog posts are taking too much time to get index. Today when I was checking the ping list I found that only default ping sites are available and other ping site has been lost, may be because of the update. Hoping now my blog post will get index faster as before.

  • Gaurav says:

  • Hey Istiak,

    Great post indeed!

    I updated the list.. But still I am worried that this could cause negative SEO. Are you 100% sure that it would not be harming our sites?

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Don’t worry. It’s 100% safe. WordPress handles pings nicely.

  • Manik says:

  • Mickiyas B says:

    Hello Istiak,
    Thank you for the long list of ping services. Very useful. Will add them to my “Update services” section right now. Thanks!

  • Great Ping List, I just copied and paste my WordPress Update Service. Anyway Is there any Problem If We Use thousands of Ping Sites to Our WordPress Blog?

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Not sure, but it won’t be a good idea. Above list is enough.

  • Great post I actually looking for this ping list finally found here
    its an awesome I have copied and updated on my blog
    thank’s for sharing it

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Glad I could help.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Glad you found it useful.

  • This is hugely helpful. Thanks so much for sharing the list!

  • Alka Mahey says:

    Thanks a lot, Istiak.

    Actually, I have a question, Is there any penalty for Google side if we ping these all ping server at once ???.
    And what if I use Sitemap submission to Google instead of pinging these.

    It will be great if you clarify my doubt.

    Thanks again.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      No, it’s not a problem.

      Submitting sitemap and using ping are two different things. Sitemap submission helps you to get indexed by Google and Bing. Pinging helps you to get indexed by other search engines including Google and Bing.

  • Amit Kumar says:

    Hello Istiak,
    Thank you for the long list of ping services. Very useful. Will add them to my “Update services” section right now. Thanks!

  • mahendra says:

    I did not find Update Services option in the writing section. Is it removed in WordPress 4.5.2?

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      No, dear. It’s still there. Just scroll down and you will find it on the bottom.

      • mahendra says:

        Sir, I am using a multisite network for WordPress. Yesterday i found that it was removed for such network installation. Now I am using Activate Update Services plugin for this functionality. Thanks for ping list great work you have for new bloggers like me.

  • Saqib Mahmood says:

    Thank You Istiak Rayhan!

    For this ping list. I will add all of them in my WordPress writing section.

    But I have a question. Adding this list helps in traffic increase OR is there any penalty of adding so many links?

    Because I have already added few of them.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Adding this list will help you to get indexed quickly. And there is no penalty of adding so many links.

  • Thanks for the huge list, I have a doubt. If we add these many links will Google penalize for doing so? Anyway,I am gonna try this list for my blog. Thanks a lot for this awesome post :)

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      It won’t be a problem, bro. Feel free to use this ping list.

  • Pamela says:

    Hello Istiak
    Firstly thank you for such an excellent blog. I came to it by searching for a ping list.
    I have a question .
    I am constantly revising my posts before I settle on being satisfied with what I have written. I notice at times over 20 revisions. I do write it out first in a document but still change after I have published.
    Does WP ping each and every time I update and publish my posts?
    I feel that this would lead to overdoing the pinging and would not like to get banned by Google. Can I prevent this ?

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      No, it won’t be a problem as long as you update your posts with new information. It actually helps Google to know about your updated information. I myself update my posts frequently.

  • Pamela says:

    Thank you for the reply. I may have to clarify myself a bit.

    Just after initially posting an article, each time I have revised it, not actually updated my blog. It has been to revise the layout of a sentence or paragraph. I am afraid I can do it about 7 or 8 times within an hour of first posting. If it pings each and every time I revise, will it be regarded as taking advantage the system?

    I have to congratulate you on such an excellent blog. It is very clear and easy to understand. I am going to implement many of your lessons. Things have changed massively since I first started blogging. It was very simple back then. So now it is like starting again. Thank goodness for sites like yours.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      I’d recommend you to revise your posts properly before publishing the posts. It’s the best practice. However, if you have to update your posts several times within an hour, you can use WordPress Ping Optimizer plugin. It will control the excessive pinging.

      And thanks for your kind words. It means a lot to me.

  • Please Don’t go crazy with a massive list of pinging services

    Avoid using long ping list on the internet that contain 100-150 services which simply do not exist anymore. (Most of mentioned ping sites in the above list removed).

    If you have a long ping list, you’re just adding to the noise because they often contain URLs that are either outdated/dead or might go offline soon or late.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Thanks for the information. I’ll update the list soon.

  • vijaygopal says:

    Bro, I updated the ping list you provided. After publishing each post WordPress automatically submit to search engines or I have to manually enter my URL to ping websites?
    which one is better? To Index my New content

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      No, you don’t need to do manual pinging.

  • di sekitar says:

    wow really cool list,

    how many links that can I add to my WordPress? is there any limit?

    If I edit my post and click update. Will WordPress automatically ping again?

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      There is no limit. But I’d recommend excessive pinging. And yes, WordPress will ping automatically.

  • Hi Istiak, Thanks for this list. I want to know one thing, If some of the ping sites are outdated or dead and no longer working and I have pasted it to my WordPress writing option, Does it cause any thing? I mean is it good, bad or neutral. Thanks!

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      It won’t create much problem.

  • پرسته says:

    is there any plugin that can optimize post for ping or update ping list?

  • Amit says:


    One question here, in WordPress, when add a new post in the “posts” section then only it will notify these ping services or when we create a new webpage in WordPress in “pages” section with some content – in this case also these ping services will be notified?

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Yes, it will be notified.

  • Oworock says:

    Thanks for the list, I just update mine and am expecting the outcome in a short period of time

  • This really a good list. I had no idea about WordPress ping sites. I used normal ping sites to get the quick index for my WordPress sites. But now I know this WordPress updated ping list is more effective to get faster indexing.

      There, simply copy, paste the list from above.
      Click on Save changes.
