If your updated post is not in the search engine, then google not send relevant traffic to your website through a search engine result.
As we all know it’s very important to keep our blog Up-To-Date to drive more visitors and traffic. That is TURE!!!! But what happens, if your Update Post is not in the Search engine Index at the Right time.
Suppose You are the owner of the “Dialyupdate Blog”
Your write a post “ABC University 2017 Examination Result out” and Update it. You know 80% student open the University website on the result out date.
If your post is not in the Search Engine Index, That means you lose all the traffic of the day Because Google doesn’t know about your post. And on the second day, you will get only 20% traffic.In short,
Post Indexed by the search engine at right time is important than Writing Frequently content.
So, Now the Question is, How you can get faster indexed by all Search Engine.
The clear Cut Answer is WordPress Ping list Service.
In the article, we will learn, how we can get faster indexed by search engine, what is WordPress Ping List and how we can add ping list in the WordPress.
We also see how too much ping can hurt our website and some Paid Ping List service for faster indexing.
So let start
What is Ping?
Ping is a way of telling the search engines and some other major website, blogs etc that you have published new blog posts or updated any Old Post on your blog. This will attract search engine and bots to crawl your blog right away.
Ping is an XML-RPC (Remote Procedure Call) based push mechanism Pinging is a good practice to extend your reach to major search engines.
What is WordPress Ping List?
A WordPress ping list is a list of Web Directories or Servers. WordPress informs these web directories or servers whenever you publish a new post, Update your old content, update your WordPress blog or website.
In the above lines, I just informed theoretically how it works,
WordPress creates an XML-RPC ping each time whenever you create a post or update your site. It sends the ping to all ping services that you have listed on your WordPress ping list box.

You can manually ping all search engine one by one or just copy the below WordPress ping list and past it in WordPress as explain below to automatically ping.
How To Add “WordPress Ping List” To WordPress
By default, WordPress notifies some major ping services. But you can extend the list by adding some more ping services.
Updating ping list is one of the essential settings to configure after installing WordPress. Here’s how to do it.
- Login you WordPress as an Admin and Click on Settings>>Writing.
- Copy the above WordPress Ping list and Replace the default ping list with the new one. After that click on Save.
So, in this way you can update your ping list.
Note: WordPress Ping list changes or Update time to time, so be active with ping service and enter only ne ping service per line.
Is it Ping Can Hurt My Blog?
As I’ve mentioned, WordPress will automatically ping your blog every time you publish a post or edit a post, this is a good thing. But it can hurt you!!!
If you edit posts a lot, especially within a short period of time.
Some people obsess over the smallest of errors or layout issues on their site, causing them to constantly edit their posts or page.
With each edit, WordPress sends a ping to the update services. Excessive pinging like this can get your site banned from the update services for being a spammer.
But what I do? If I have to change my content frequently within a short period of time.
Don’t worry there is a plugin called WordPress ping optimizer to control the activity of the WordPress ping list.
Install this plugin and activate it.
- Now login your WordPress as an Admin and click on WordPress ping optimizer under setting.
See in the screenshot, My all ping is Not Ping Excepted my new post. You can also use the feature “Ping Now” to ping whenever you want.
How Often Should you Ping your Blog
- Ping your blog only when it’s updated;
- Never ping your blog when it’s not updated;
- Never do over ping. It’s a penalty;
- Use plug-ins to avoid over pinging;
- WordPress ping list or Pinging sites never boost your ranking. It just for indexing.
Is there any Negative effect of Pinging too much?
What will happen if you ask the same question to one of your friends again and again in a single day? Obviously, he/she will get annoyed by you.
In the same way, it’s good to avoid pinging the same URL over and over within a short period of time.
Online Ping List Service Tool
Today some companies like NEWS, EVENTS website etc use paid service to get faster indexed by the search engine to get instant traffic.
I’m not usually recommended to use Padi Ping Service, but if you have a Good budget for your website then go with it fast indexing and fresh traffic.
Note: Don’t forget to think about, Is it paid service is important for your Blog/Business.
Here is a list of the Online Ping service Tool are,
Note: – Don’t ping a single URL with 10 ping tools or 10 times with the same ping tool. I recommend to ping an URL only once with a single ping tool and use up to 1 or 2 ping tools.
So, this is the brief introduction to WordPress ping List service and tool.
Form my experience with google webmaster tool, I can tell you a trick how I add my post in google search engine within 2 hr.
Now you can take the advantage of Fetch as Google Option to get Faster Indexed by Google.
- Open your Google Webmaster Tool and click on Fetch as Google.
- Now click on Crawl >> Fetch as Google Option.

When you click on Fetch you will see a two option.
- Crawl this URL only (limit 500 per month)
- Crawl this URL and its direct link (limit 10 per month)
Select as per you need and click on GO.
This will tell Google, you update or add a new post on your website and chance getting indexed by Google faster is an increase.
