The BEST Free WordPress Ping List for Your Blog

What if every time you wrote a blog post, you also automatically alerted top news sites, blogs and directories?  That’s the purpose of a ping – a quick update to let sites like Google, Technorati and Yahoo, plus international sites and search engines know of a new post in your blog.

By default, WordPress is set to automatically ping (alert) pingomatic.com when you write a new post.  Pingomatic handles about a dozen or so of the more popular ping services, but what if you could reach out to more sites?  This free WordPress ping list will notify over 75 sites of your new posts automatically.  Just copy and paste it into the Update Services textbox under Settings > Writing in your WordPress Admin dashboard.

Copy and paste the list into your WordPress Dashboard under Settings – Writing – Update Services

Here’s the full UPDATED list.  Keep in mind there are NO DUPLICATES on this list, so you don’t run the risk of spamming the same service two or more times.

How Do I Add This List to Blogger or WordPress.com Sites?

Both Blogger and WordPress.com have their own built-in ping list, with no way to add to it.  This is why I highly recommend installing WordPress on your own server, which in turn gives you more control and flexibility with your blog.

Can You Ping Too Many Sites?

There’s no such thing as pinging too many sites – these sites are designed for the purpose of collecting blog updates and sharing them.  You may notice that adding new posts is a little slower than before, but this is simply WordPress working in the background to notify all the sites on the list about your new post.

There is the change of “Sping” or ping spam if you constantly send a barrage of updates to the services or use poor search engine optimization like content scraping and such. Most honest bloggers have nothing to worry about.  Most, if not all of these services, have built-in notices that can alert you if you’re getting a bit too excited with your updates.  They will usually say that the ping was unsuccessful, but not give you any specific reason why.

If there’s a large gap between when you submit a post and when it actually goes out through these services, that can also be a red flag for ping spam – particularly if your posts were getting hungrily indexed within 24 hours and then there’s a gap of 3-4 days. Sometimes, this gap can also be simply attributed to technical problems – so there’s no need to send off a heated message to the ping service asking why they didn’t get your latest post notification.
