DAY 15 Lessons: SEO Tip No. 3 - Pinging Your Blog

Day 15 and day 3 of your SEO Tips and Tricks Series!

“Ping”ing your Blog

What is “Ping” in blogging

In simple terms, Ping (in Blogging) is a procedure wherein a weblog informs a server (example: Google server) that a new content has been posted.

Why do we have to “Ping”?

To increase your visitors, because aside from original and substantial content, search engines also like fresh and new content, so there’s a great chance that search engines will visit your blog to see what’s new.

How do you “Ping”?

There are two (2) ways...

1. Manually – You go to what we call “Ping Sites” like Pingler and Ping-o-matic, then you submit your blog’s URL and your Keywords or Blog Title &/or Category. 


2. Automatically – This is a bit complicated for beginners because there is a need to edit/configure your blog’s html.  Once edited, your blog will see to it that every time you make a post, it will be reported to various servers.

For now we will do it manually because it’s much easier and faster.

There are lots and lots of FREE Ping Sites but initially, we will only use 2 of the most popular ones:

1. – Click HERE to visit the site.

          In this Ping site, you need to provide the information: 

·        Your Blog Title (or keywords – what your blog is all about)
·        Your Blog’s URL (, and
·        Your Blog’s Category (example: Business, Entertainment, Family, etc.)

Next, type the captcha code then click on PING! (orange button).
Pingler will give you a report on the pinging progress.


2. – Click HERE to visit the site.

          In this Ping site, you need to provide the information: 

·        Your Blog Name (What your blog is all about), and
·        Your Blog’s URL (, and
·        Your Blog’s XML Feed – This is OPTIONAL

Next, check all the categories under “General” services, then click on the “Go Pingoat!” button at the bottom.  Again, a ping progress report will be generated.

Okay! That’s it for Day 15 Lesson.

  1. Hi mam!

    Why is it i'm receiving the folllowing error in

    You don't have permission to access / on this server.
    Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

  2. Hi Aican, sorry for the late reply as I seldom check this blog... Anyway, have you tried pinging again? Because I just pinged a while ago and it works just fine. Maybe it's just one of those random errors. Ping again. :)

    But if the error persists just use other other ping sites like Ping-o-matic >>
