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.

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.

You can copy the list from WordPress doc file



How to add or update WordPress ping list:

Login to your WordPress dashboard. Go to Writing under settings tab and scroll down to update services and add all the above ping list. Here is  a screenshot for quick understanding:

    When I am inserting the links under settings->Writing and clicking on save, I get the following error message. Anyone who can help me out on this ?

    Not Acceptable !
    An appropriate representation of the requested resource could not be found on this server. This error was generated by Mod_Security

    1. Hey Avinash,
      The reason for the above Mod Security error is that it’s a server-side error which protects you against a possible threat for brute force attack. So, contact your hosting for the same. They will be able to help you.

      WordPress by default takes care of excessive pinging. You don’t have to worry about this anymore.

    I have started using this ping list and noticing some changes on the ranking. Hope this will not affect much on my site ranking as there is no fix number about the number of pings we should send. If any one knows, please update. Thanks
