Let me first explain a little bit about the WordPress Ping.
What Is WordPress Ping?
According to Wikipedia, Ping in blogging is an XML-RPC-based push mechanism by which blog notifies a server that its content has been updated.
WordPress Ping is very useful update service. Whenever you write and publish a new blog post then It will help Search Engines to know that you have updated your blog content, and the search engine will send their bots and crawl your new content.
It also works when you modify or edit your already published blog post. It will notify about your new post and help to get indexed fast in the search engine.
WordPress uses Ping-O-Matic’s (rpc.pingomatic.com) for this task but you can add your ping list to ping more services manually.
I will also share my ping list which I am using on my blog and you can also use this for yours.
