    Can everyone me if we are aloud to post our hubs on Pingomatic. I have done so with my blog post but not HP and I didn't want to do something that was not aloud by Hubpages

      Pinging content basically just tells search engines to come and crawl it. There's no reason you can't do it with hubs.

      However, Hubpages gets crawled pretty regularly by Google so you don't really need to.

        WryLilt- Thank you for this info. I have tried it but I really don't see much difference in traffic

          Pinging isn't about getting traffic. It's about letting Google and other search engines know that they should crawl (and hopefully index) your content. Even if you don't ping, Google will usually crawl a hub within a day or so anyway, and most decent websites within a couple of days.

          Indexing doesn't do anything if you have content with keywords or content that:
          1. Is in a saturated topic (Like weight loss).
          2. Is something no one is Googling (purple pigeon poop).

            Purple pigeon poop? New keyword to dominate! wink

            To be a little uh, more on topic...I ping all my hubs when I make them. Maybe it's silly, but it doesn't take more than 5 seconds so why not.
