Blog and Ping! Surely many of you use Pingomatic to update multiple search engines, RSS feed tracking services and blog directories about your latest blog article. There are many ping lists available and many pinging tools which can do this in one click.
Pinging lets dozens of services which specifically track and connect blogs to know you’ve updated so they can come check you out. I was using Pingomatic for several months, but maybe it has become so popular with bloggers, that it many times does not connect for me or works very slow. So what are alternatives to Pingomatic?
Pingomatic an ping many common services like Weblogs, Newsgator, Pubsub etc. as well as Specialized services like Rubhub and blogshares.
So I set out to look for alternative pinging services that ping or notify a number of blogging services that keep track of weblogs and publish them. By pinging, you let the services know that your blog has been updated and hence, they crawl and index your site, publishing your blog contents, thus increasing your blog’s popularity.
Remember pinging is important if you use feedburner feed since feedburner will come crawling around after you ping it and update your feed with the latest content. And based on its content other blog tracking services will update.
