Default Why Pinging Is Good For Your Blog and Your Business

A quick read on pinging.

"Pinging lets people know you have updated so they will come back to your site. This allows you to build blog traffic."

Pinging reminds me of the days of submitting your site to the search engines. That was once a very important thing to do for a website, but is no longer needed as all the search engines aggressively want to find good sites.

How long does anyone suspect pinging will be necessary?

To ping your blog every time you update your blog, I suggest using Pingomatic.com or pingat.com
pingat.com didn't appear to be a valid site.

Now when you visit sites that show blog updates you see that there are tons of Blog ads repeating updates every few seconds. I guess they figured out how to add content to blogs automatically, and have set up hundreds to receive thier faux titles which all point back to one site.

Similar to google bombing for blogs. I'm guessing those sites will cease to exists, and search engines will create blog searches/rankings, and blog adwords ppc programs.

Yes, it is actually pingoat.com. Gotta get that "goat" in there -- when you see the site you will see the goat connection.

It's a handy service. You can also use it to create Google site maps on the fly.
