How to Update WordPress Ping List for faster Indexing

Every blogger wants their blogs to get indexed by the search engine as fast as possible. Naturally, a blogger has to wait for the Search Engine bot to crawl the posts and index them.

Want to skip the waiting- use ping services.

Ping service enables you to notify the search engines that your blog has been updated. Ping is an XML-RPC-based push mechanism by which a blog notifies a server that its content has been updated.

In earlier times, ping was done manually which was boring and time-consuming. Then, WordPress wizards bring WordPress Ping Update service which works automatically. Whenever you publish a new post or modify an old post, this service notifies the search engine and blog directories to index it.

In this post, I will be sharing an updated WordPress ping list. In addition to that, I will also show you how to update your WordPress ping list.

Here is a list of working Ping sites which will help you to ping more services.
