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.
When you write a new post, edit your old post or modify your existing post, WordPress sends a ping to all the ping services which you have added in your ping update service.
Then ping service notifies Google and other search engines about the new post you published or modification in your existing one. Search engines send the bots to crawl your content and index it.
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.
70+ Best WordPress Ping List
As I mentioned above that WordPress uses Ping-O-Matic’s (rpc.pingomatic.com) and here is the list of ping services which I am using for my blog.
I did not add any Google services(http://blogsearch.google.com/ping/RPC2) in the below list because there is no need to add that if you have submitted you XML-Sitemap in the Google Search Console.
These are popular and most trusted Ping Services which you can start using now.
