Pinging is a specialized way of sending your newly published post to search engines; letting them know you have updated your blog. So, what is its usefulness? By pinging your blog posts, various search engines will be able to find your newly updated pages or posts with ease and also faster than other blogs. It will also interest you to know that pinged posts and pages get quicker indexing than others.


Can you see why these free services should not be toiled with?

I wonder if you know that this pinging is already incorporated in your WP settings. No need to do this manually.

Check under Settings, Writing, you will see the option at the bottom.

Thanks for this piece. But, is it automatic in all themes or is it a plugin? The truth is after pinging it manually, it works like magic! My traffic shoots up like a mooning bitcoin! I don't think doing it manually is bad after all. Do you agree with me?

No, it is not a plugin added by me, and I did not do it manually, it is a part of WP and perhaps the AIO plugin automatic settings (did not investigate) which you have as well I assume.

Cannot agree or disagree. If you have it in settings (easy to check) then it looks like a double job, perhaps even harmful.

I believe you what you are saying about the traffic, so let me know if you have it in Settings. I am puzzled. It is interesting what you are saying and worth investigating further. I might try it dependent on what you answer about your own settings, so check at your side.

How exactly do you check the traffic for that single post when you ping it?

Okay, I'll keep you posted on the setting of my WordPress if it is there or not. My traffic indicator increases after each sent ping.

I mentioned the pinging tool I use. If you visit the site, fill all the required details and select all the services then click on 'send ping'. Are you okay with my explanation?

I didn't notice that this is a course, not a blog, so I checked only the first lesson.
I'm OK. Thanks :)
