Article promotion often is critical for the success of a website, no matter whether the site is bout a niche long-tail niche topic or a mainstream, general topic. While most bloggers have set up their installation, and workflow, to cover the most popular social media networks1, search engines also still do drive traffic to websites.

Waiting for site indexing can sometimes be a long and tedious affair, especially for newer domains which haven’t received any [trusted] status, authority from Google yet.

By default each new WordPress installation comes with Ping-O-Matic configured as ping service. Thus each blog post published will ping Pingomatic, which in turn will ping several search engines and notify them that a new post has been published.

As great as Ping-O-Matic is, the free service doesn’t cover many search engines and the automated process of pinging search engines to notify them of newly published content can be vastly improved by expansion of services WordPress pings.

The WordPress Ping Process

By default each (new) WordPress website which is set to be public and be indexed by search engines will ping any update service listed under Settings -> Writing.

Each new site will have the Pingomatic ping URL listed already. The services to be notified, pinged, can easily be expanded just by adding the URLs of each service’s ping process.

Below we have a posted an updated, and fully functional at the time of writing, list of ping services which will speed up the indexation of newly published content on your site.
