10 One-Click Ping Tools to Update Search Engines, RSS Trackers

By 04-09-2005   Blogging

Blog and Ping! How can you 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 Alternatives

multiple ping

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.

One Click Multiple Blog Services Pingback Tools

  • Pingomatic – the most popular. Pings several popular services and specialized services. Create a bookmark for each ping url.
  • Pingoat – Pings a huge collection of 52 blogging services, including special services and non english tracking services. You can easily select all services by selecting the category.
  • King Ping – Pings multiple services – 18 in all. Easy to check and uncheck boxes. And you can also create a bookmark with your settings.
  • Blogflux Pinger – Pings 32 services, including several specialized services and language specific services too.
  • Feedshark – Ping, submit, & promote your blog, feed, or podcast for free to multiple services.
  • Ping The Empire – Pings 18 common blog tracking services.
  • Pingates – pings 37 services including several many Japanese ones
  • Ping.In – notifies several Blog Search Engines and blog directories, much like pingoat.
  • Autopinger – will automatically ping your selected blog services. Has a XML-RPC interface too.

Do you know about WordPress Pinging Lists – which help to ping update services smartly. Please let me know of more services which I can add to this list and keep it updated. Till then Blog and ping! [This post is regularly updated.]

    Pingoat sometimes categorizes the regular blogs as splogs!

    Pingoat can be a real pain sometimes.

    Yesterday, I had to wait around 2 minutes for Pingoat to finish. Several of my friends had to wait over 5 minutes!

    I myself would only recommend Pingoat to someone who happens to have lots of free time to spare.

  3. Anonymous says:

    I think pingoat is overkill. I mean do I really need to submit my english speaking blog to all of those foreign services????? lol

  4. FeedShot Support says:

    We’ve just released a beta version of our new service called FeedShot, that submits your blog to a number of different blog search engines for free.

    We’re adding new search engines daily. Check us out at: www.feedshot.com.

  5. Marshall Kirkpatrick says:

    Actually, if you use Feedburner you don’t need to ping anymore…they now provide a customizable automatic pinging service any time you post a new blog article. i wrote about it on my site yesterday, http://marshallk.blogspot.com

    That said, my second choice is pingoat.

  6. Ambrotose Complex says:

    Great List and I applaude you for making it available to us..Blogs are truly changing the landscape!

  7. Joseph Scott says:

    I recently released another alternative to Pingomatic called PINGQueue (http://www.pingqueue.com/). It offers services similar to Pingomatic along with a history of your pings with responses from the services that received it.

  8. elvira black says:

    thanks–this was a great public service.

    Since you mentioned Pingoat, I tried that first, but it “blacklisted” my site, i guess thinking it might be spam (it’s an absolutely legit blog). But I tried another one on your list and it worked…yay! It’s so frustrating when Ping o Matic is on the fritz, so I”m glad I found your post here.

  9. Frank says:

    Pingoat has turned into a real advertising trap!

  10. Mark says:

    UPDATE:

    Pingoat now pings 52 services.

    PingMyBlog is now Blogflux Pinger.

    Feed Shark now offers full automation. Podcast support has also been implemented.

  11. QuickOnlineTips says:

    Thanks Mark for the update and your time. The post has been updated.

  12. oliver says:

    very helpfull list thank you!
    is there a php script or something that could do all them automatically?

  13. kurniawan says:

    Hi,

    Nice list

    How can i utilize the list and put it in my wordpress so that it will ping everytime I post in my blog

    thx

  14. vinson says:

    I have launched a new free blog and podcast ping service at http://autopinger.com that auto-pings blogs and podcasts. It basically handles the ping management for bloggers and podcasters.

  15. youlaida says:

    Great tool, Vinson! I bet your autopinger would kill the rest of the ping services by offering auto pinging. I have to say it’s AWESOME!

  16. Frank says:

    Great stuff Vision. Thats exactly what i was looking for in the Net!

  17. defiance says:

    a good list! =)

    thank you! =)

  18. John Bokma says:

    I have written a simple Perl script that pings several services and can easily be extended: Ping your blog via XML-RPC to update services with Perl.

    It can, for example, be called via cron.

  19. foerdermittelberatung says:

    Nice collection! And useful as well! :-)

  20. disappointed says:

    I am disappointed that I fell for this. I used Feedshark not knowing too much about how it would work out. Shortly afterwards I received, for the first time, my first fishing ad which appeared in my blog stats as a user visiting my page. When I checked to see where it had originated from I was taken to a dodgy page which asked for my email before I could proceed and further investigations took me to a company advertising it’s services. From where I am sitting this looks and smells like a scam.

    I would like to know how to remove my details from feed shark.

  21. James says:

    Dumb question, but would it be fruitful to utilize more than one ping service? I’m just getting started and am new, but it seems like if it’s redundant, it could potentially black-ball you as a blogger (in the search engines anyway)

  22. Patrick says:

    http://pingates is one of ping service

  23. Kate says:

    Great post!

    disappointed > I’ve been using Feed Shark for almost a year now, and haven’t experienced any problems…

  24. Liam says:

    I agree with Kate. I too have been using Feedshark for quite a while now – without any problems.

    lol @ disappointed. I assume you’re referring to “referer spam”, right?

    FYI, referer spam is quite common. If the legitimate search engine spiders can find your site, I’m sure it wouldn’t be too hard for a few spam spiders/bots to find your site as well! ;)

    Read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Referer_spam

    Cheers!

  25. Adam says:

    I wonder if there is any plugin to do it.

  26. r00t9 says:

    You cant ping the ‘same blog’ so often. Give pingoat some rest!” (pingoat said this the first time i used it)

    I use blogspot as my host.

    If anyone can give me advice Id really appreciate it.

  52. QuickOnlineTips says:

    Hi chandra,
    I have actually worked up a python script that automatically triggers ping-o-matic ping tool every 30 min. I thought it would be relevant to share this here. It is a simple python script which is running on a cloud platform called heroku. So every 30min it pings all the search engines listed on ping-o-matic. In case you are interested to know more, go to http://teckguide.blogspot.com/2016/03/ping-o-matic-python.html
