Blog and Ping Technique
Blog and Ping



"In blogging, ping is an XML-RPC-based push mechanism by which a weblog notifies a server that its content has been updated. An XML-RPC signal is sent to one or more ping servers, which can then generate a list of blogs that have new material."

In layman's terms, blog pinging notifies all major blog directories in one go so that everyone knows about your latest or recently updated blogs. It saves you the time of having to do each site manually.

The Blog and Ping technique is an often overlooked SEO technique. Pinging notifies a number of services that keep track of weblogs and publish them. By pinging, you let the services know that your blog has been updated. This increases your blog's popularity and helps blog search engines crawl and index your site properly.
