Google Ping

Google Ping: Google introduces their pinging service for blogs that will notify Google of changes. I am surprised to see very little discussion for this service but am not surprised with the lack of fanfare or threats of switching. Ping-O-Matic does such an amazing job (amazing == you set it and forget it; well if you use WordPress you don’t even need to set it) that I can never see myself switching.

    There was quite a bit of discussion about this a few weeks ago when it first became public and operational…

    hmm.. Ping-O-Matic haven’t add Google Ping yet.

    I was surprised not to see more interest about it myself. I did write up a quick tutorial on how to ping google with wordpress which shows you how to “set and forget” an automatic ping to google alongside the standard ping-o-matic for wordpress. It might be of some help.

    The thing is, there’s no need to swap from ping-o-matic, google blog search is just another service to ping that I’m sure ping-o-matic will support in the future. Swapping would be mad, adding it would make sense though.

    Can’t remember whose blog it was, but read a post not that long ago on Planet WordPress about the ping for google and added it to my writing options then and there…

    Feedburner includes Google Ping in its 5 optional pings to select from.

    Forgive my ignorance about these things but, if you’re using the WP Google sitemap plugin wouldn’t that communicate your blog updates in the same or similar way to Google pings?
