67 WordPress Pinging Resources You Need to Know

by Dev Basu February 21st, 2008 

My post on 5 Unique Ways to Make the Google Bot Your Best Friend attracted quite a bit of attention and a fair number of comments, which I'm really happy about. One of the strategies that I discussed in particular was using WordPress's built-in pinging features to ping a large number of pinging services every time a blogpost is posted.

Quite a few people requested this list of pinging url's and I figured that it'd be a great resource to refer to (read: bookmark this on del.ic.ious!). So here you go folks: 67 unique url's to pingdom glory :)

A word of caution though – Make sure you only use the pinging resources that are relevant to your site. It's best to run the list through a dedicated pinging service first to see how many result in a successful ping. This should be done to prevent any broken track backs.

  1. Many thanks for the list – very handy resource indeed.

  2. Matt Ridout says:

    I have wanted one of these forever! THANKS for the great work

  3. Oliver Taco says:

    Neat list, but you missed ours….

    We do a Yahoo backlink count for your website and then ping Technorati for each link and hit Pingomatic for each domain.

    It's also a great introduction to what you can do with iMacro.

  9. [...] internet. Nonetheless, there are many update services available on the WordPress Codex, and even more services you can ping here – it might be worth looking into adding a bunch of them to this list. I haven't tried it yet [...]

  10. Andy Beard says:

    Dev do you actually monitor your pings using this list to see whether your pings are being rejected (WP doesn't do this by default)

    You have loads of non English ping servers listed, and servers that no longer function

    There is also a ton of reduncancy which will produce little to no additional benefit

  11. Dev Basu says:

    Hey Andy, I don't ping all of these if they aren't relevant to the blog I'm pinging from. I have to say, that I don't usually check up if the ping was successful or not, unless I use a dedicated pinging service.

  12. Andy Beard says:

    People are going to end up copying the whole list into their WordPress and spamming the hell out of foreign language sites without knowing it.

    It is worth checking, for instance Pingoat cancelled their ping service around 18 months ago, and only provide a web based service, unless John Reese switched it back on after he took over the site.

  13. clickfire says:

    Maybe someone can post an edited list?

  14. Kyle James says:

    You have pingomatic listed twice for one thing. Also isn't the point of pingomatic to ping lots of other services so you don't need a ridiculous list like this loaded? I'll admit I'm not the authority on this, but you really need to be more careful in posting things like this. Lots of users are going to just copy the list and start spamming sites as Andy mentioned. I should probably recheck this list before I post it here, but I ONLY ping the following services.

  16. Clickfire says:

    Kyle, I think you can remove Icerocket. It's in Pingomatic.

  17. Dev Basu says:

    @Kyle – I loaded this list into Excel to prevent any duplicates from showing up, but I'm guessing the program didn't know the difference between the pingomatic url with a trailing slash and without one. As far as I know, pingomatic will only ping the services you select once you're on their site. The purpose of this list is to customize the pinging services relevant to your own site, and then put them in wordpress's ping list, thereby avoiding the need to use a 3rd party service such as pingomatic.

  18. Oliver Taco says:

    Oh, my, ya'll are making this a lot harder than it needs to be. Pinging your backlinks, I think, is a minor SERP increaser, importnat to do but not as important as, say, a good external linking program.

    We did a lot of research in North American search and decided that technorati and pingomatic were the 80% solution.

    Heck, if you have Joomla or a broken network or a vendor firewall blocking your pings, you can just use our client based backlink pinger once a month or so.
