Search Engine Ping Automatically Pings Search Engines
Search Engine Ping is a WordPress plugin that pings search engines to make them aware of changes to your blog immediately. Notifying search engines about your content, and changes to your content, is critical to a successful Search Engine Optimization strategy.
Why Should I Ping Search Engines?
A ping really means notifying a search engine that content was added or changed on a blog. The best way to insure the search engines are aware of all your content, is to submit a sitemap that lists all the URLs to your content. There are a lot of plugins that generate a sitemap, but none of them notifies search engines properly, which is why Search Engine Ping was created.
The plugin will notify the right search engines when your sitemap has changed immediately.
When a news feed is required rather than a sitemap, the plugin will notify the services that have this requirement.
The plugin only notifies the search engines that will result in the most traffic to your blog.
Ping Search Engines Manually
Although each search engine is fully tested to make sure it works, things can change like Live becoming Bing, or Yahoo no longer accepting submissions because they now use Bing search results. This is why we added a button to allow each search engine to be manually checked, so you can rest assured the plugin is working properly.
Each post, or page, that is published will instantly get a report showing the success or failure to ping each group of search engines. The plugin also limits the number of pings per post to 3, so post updates will never be labeled as spam.
The plugin eliminates the time, effort, and expense of search engine ping notification by handling everything automatically in the background with no configuration necessary. It works right out of the box.
