Ping Google Blog Search to Get Traffic to Your Blog

ProBlogger mentions that you can now ping Google’s blog search. Basically this means that every time you publish your post, your blog will ping Google’s blog search – and this means more chances for you to get traffic to your blog.

There’s two ways to set up the system:

  • Manually (here)
  • Automatically in WordPress: Add http://blogsearch.google.com/ping/RPC2 in your blog dashboard (choose options > writing and scroll down to Update services and add the line there)

EDIT: New news is old news: Matt at WordPress mentions that he has added google ping to pingomatic.

I now have three places I ping:

http://blo.gs/ping.php

http://1470.net/api/ping

http://rpc.pingomatic.com/

I have a bigger list of ping services in one older post, check it out in case you want to expand your list.
