We always want our blog posts to get indexed by Search Engines as soon as possible. Typically, we have to wait for Search Engine bots to crawl our posts and index them.
But there’s a better way – Using WordPress Update Services (Ping Services).
Update Services are tools that you can use to notify search engines that your blog has been updated with new posts. Ping is an XML-RPC based push mechanism by which a blog notifies a server that its content has been updated.
Previously, people used to ping blog posts’ URLs manually. But it was very time-consuming.
That’s where WordPress Update Services come in handy. When you publish a new post or modify an old post, WordPress automatically notifies the ping sites.
Here I’ll be sharing an updated WordPress Ping List for 2023. And I’ll also show you how to extend WordPress Ping List.
Updated WordPress Ping List For 2023
Here is a list of working ping sites that will help you to ping more services.
We’ve collected this list from WordPress.org documentation.
How To Extend WordPress Ping List
By default, WordPress uses only one ping service – Ping-o-Matic. The best thing is, that this single ping service lets many other services know that you’ve updated your site.
But you can consider adding other Ping services as well. Let’s see how to do it.
Just go to your WordPress Dashboard and navigate to Settings > Writing.
You will find “Update Services” at the bottom of the page options. Just copy the above list and paste it there. Then click on “Save Changes”.
That’s it. You are done. Now WordPress will notify all the above ping services when you publish a new post or modify an existing one.
Hope this post helped you to update your ping services.
