Ping your Blog
Every time you make a new post, you need to “ping” your blog. This is the process of telling all of the search engines that you have added new content.
Many bloggers just wait for the search engines to find their new content, but that isn’t the approach that you should take if you want to build your blog fast.
Instead of taking a passive stand to your blogging, you should be proactive and the best way to do this is to shout about your new content every time you post content.
Ping services will tell all of the news aggregation services that you have posted new content so that they can come as see it.
WordPress has an auto send feature included when you publish, but you shouldn’t rely upon it as your sole solution.
Popular Blog Ping Resources;
Using GooglePing for example, just fill in the name of your blog, the Home Page URL, the RSS feed URL (which helps the blog pinger service so a good tip is to find your rss feed URL and add it every time) and lastly an email address.
Then complete the capture and click ‘Send’
When you send, you will see a report which will show you which sites successfully received and which failed.
With GooglePing you will ping 88 different sites, if you get a couple of failures, don’t worry, it is quite normal.
Don’t worry too much about having a few failures in your report, it is only natural that occasionally some servers fail to respond in time or are off line, so as long as the majority of your pings are successful, your content will be found.
If you are blogging everyday, and you are adding good quality content, then after a few months the search engines will be visiting your site on a daily basis. In time, you will end up with a blog that gets pages ranked in search within an hour or two of your posting them.
