WordPress Ping List for Faster Indexing Of New Post

WordPress ping list are very useful to extend your blog reach to major search engines. We all know that blog has a big advantage over static/dynamic sites in the form of Ping. If you are not aware of pinging feature of WordPress, then here are my 2 cents for you.

WordPress Pinglist

When ever you publish, edit or modify a post, WordPress sends ping to all the Ping services which is listed under your ping update service. So this way, ping services get notified about new post and search engine will quickly index them.

Now by default WordPress notifies all major ping services but we can always extend our limit by pinging more services by adding them manually.

Over the time, I have compiled a list of ping services for WordPress, which will help you to ping more services. Here is list of my working WordPress ping list:

    Hi Harsh,

    That’s very good list you provided!

    Generally i use pingomatic for my blog. I have also a great list in my collection. It is very important to use pinging service to get index fast.

    Anyway, thanks a lot for sharing this useful post with us.

  2. says

    Thank you so much for this information. I have been blogging away for months and had no idea what a ping even was, let alone that I needed to optimize the list.

  3. Jeannette Becker says

    Please, Help me it’s urgent :)

    1. Does wordpress ping “Google” If i schedule a post for future?
    2. If yes, Is there any way to stop it for certain period of time?
    3. How do i know when my site sending ping to google?

  4. says

    Hi Harsh,
    Thanks for the compiled list of ping service. But, can just remove these line numbers in front of each ping service. We have to remove it ourselves while entering them.


  5. Michael says

    The only thing I am worried about is lately my website dashboard with editing pages and posts have been really slow, and I read on wordpress support that the update services cause this slowness. Will this cause even more slowness with more? I had default one, and it was slow, and saying connection was lost. I hope this isn’t going to make it worse. I copied and pasted Tuans list.

  6. says

    Hi Harsh,
    Thanks for the list of ping urls, I have tried to copy the urls and paste it on my wordpress blog Setting>Writing list. It shows numbers at the starting of URL, I have removed the numbers and used it but i would recommend you to also remove the numbers from the line. It would be easier for newbie bloggers.


  7. Satyender says

    and i read every comment of here and no body mentioned how much is enough. Lately i am using 5 pinging sites and then somewhere i read “too much of this may treated as spam”. I will stop using those after adding these sites.

    Just a quick question, should i use all the pinging sites provided here ( including comments )or just use of yours? How much should i use?

    and thanks bud for the post. It helped!

  8. says

    Thanks for the list and I did not know that having so much pinging is good. But if it’s good I will add all pinging address on the dashboard.

  9. Amrish says

    Thanks for the Great List of Ping site . My blog posts are taking too long time to get index . Today when I was checking the ping list I found that only default ping site is available and other ping site has been lost , may be because of the updates . Hoping now my blog postt will get index faster as before .

  10. Avtar Singh says

  11. Vin DiCarlo says

    Great Ping List, I just copied and paste my WordPress Update Service. Anyway Is there any Problem If We Use thousands of Ping Sites to Our WordPress Blog?

  12. kapil says

  14. Navneet says

    Hey Harsh , here is quick update for your article that now there is no need of CBNET ping optimizer plugin as wordpress have now solved the re pinging issue. Even when i installed the plugin , the author of CbNet himself described the same. Kindly update and thanks for pinging list :)

  15. Goran says

    Hey to all, i’ve just added the Harsh ping list but when i arrived the too much pinging section here i’ve read that cbnet Ping Optimizer hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress. So what you suggest and which plug in do you suggest now, i cant see the published date on this post, nether the date of comments so I had to write this for up to date tip about the same.

    Cheers to all

  16. Rakesh Kumar says

    I have used these valuable resources to enable pinging of my blog posts. But i have a query. I am using cbnetpo ping optimizer and in configuration area, it asks me how to stop excessive pinging.. it shows me an option ping once every 15 minutes and something like that. How and when should we ping posts? kindly give me an answer!

  17. Sinbadisailor says

    I never updated the list of my ping but today i updated this from here given all the ping list…should i use all the ping list? or just some ?

  18. Vivek Sancheti says

    Hey one question,
    by default in wordpress
    we have
    below to ping

    which in return pings many services as far as my knowlegde , then wont the list u gave when added all those services once again ?

    wht should i do ?
    should i remove pingomatic from the list ?

    are use pingomatic only instead of ur long list ?

  19. Rakesh says

    Thanks for sharing these ping list. I will add them for my wordpress blog. Are all ping URLs are working? Have you tested?

  20. Kunal @ TechHogger says

    MBP is must else it may harm blog by too much pinging.
    Lovely compilation Harsh. While going through the comments I could find much more resources. Your one article brought much more ping sources.

  21. Deepanshu says

    i wna ask this ping list is only for getting indexed by google quickly ? is there any seo benefit too ? i usually write a post and do 3 bookmarks and it gets indexed in 5-10 min then do i need to ping all this services ? :roll:

  22. Shyam S. Sharma says

    We can use cbnet ping otimizer. It’s similar to MBP ping optimizer and no need to registration.

    • Kimi says

      I agree, I also use cbnet ping optimizer to avoid email listing of maxblogpress.

      In fact, cBnet is available to install inside the dashboard of our blogs.

      This way, somehow I feel more sure about a plugin which is listed in wordpress plugins database directly from wordpress.org website.

      Though I am sure MBP plugin is also great.

  23. DiTesco says

    That’s an awful lot of ping sites Harsh :) Anyway, I did get what I wanted most from this post and that was that excessive pinging is bad for your SEO. Is there anyway we can turn off the WP functionality without having to install a plugin? I mean only for revisions. That would be great.

    • says

      I’m not sure if we can stop post pinging for editing old post without any plugin. For now You can use plugin like maxblogpress ping optimizer or similar plugin.

  24. Sumon @ Sumon Seleem's Blog says

    I’m using the following list since I’ve started blogging:


    Hope this list will help you all!

  25. HackTik says

    this is too good. Thanx a lot for sharing this list.
    Just wondering to know, when we publish a post and wordpress pings these services – is there a way to know and see which ones have been pinged succesfully and which ones not. I mean, is there any log within wordpress where we can find out this.
    Thanx anyways for the list.

  26. Tuan says

  27. Anuj@webtricksblog says

    Hey that is nice list of pinging services :).but i read on some blog that using to many ping services can hampered your blog performance.

  28. sushen says

    harsh i wanted to say that how do we decide this list and what was the main purpose of ping.
    i have heard about this first time.
