Submit Your Blog to Search Engines, Update & “Ping” Your Blog

Posted Monday, July 13, 2009 by blogtester in Labels: ,


Once your blog is created, remember to submit your blog to search engines so that they can index your blog and crawl over it whenever there are matching searches. Here are few search engines that you should submit your blog to:-


Google prefers blogs that have been around for sometime instead of new blogs. While Yahoo! prefers newer blogs. And they all love UPDATED blogs. Update once in a week if possible.


Whenever your blog is updated, remember to “ping” your blog. In other words, tell search engines that your blog has been updated with new contents. You can ping your blog manually at or (my 2 preferred sites before I started to use Windows Live Writer).

If you are using Wordpress or Windows Live Writer, add the following to your ping list:-

Windows Live Writer will automatically ping those sites when you update your blog. For users of Windows Live Writer, you can copy and paste the above ping list to “Tools, Options, Ping Servers”. I’m not so sure about Wordpress though.

Actually the extensive ping list tends to slow down my blog publishing time but I’m loath to leave out any of them so I just keep them in my ping list. If you find it causing delay when publishing, choose several popular ones or anyone you like.
