When you ‘ping’, you notify blog indexing services that you have made an update on your blog.

Why is Pinging Important?

In order for your blogging efforts to be extremely effective, you will want to make sure the content on your blog is syndicated properly.  There are many different ways to do this and pinging is one of them.

Ping-o-matic is used automatically by WordPress when you install it, but there are others you should take advantage of.  Use the following list to make sure your content is represented by these services.

    I absolutely need to get outside significantly more as well as halt just spending just about all of my daytime hours logging hands in poker on myspace or facebook considering that these days i have been not been able to read with regards to this. Even while I find it difficult to believe that I completely concur with every word, its good to browse some keen commentary in place of the standard crap I uncover flying all across the web.
