Free Ping Services

Updated on May 7, 2012

Get Free Traffic By Using A Free Ping Service

Pinging your website, blog or feed is a great Free way to get traffic.

Pinging lets the search engines know that you have updated your content. Search engines such as Google and Bing like fresh updated content and will give it higher ranking in the search results.

Simply submit your your site or feed to these ping services when you update or add new content. You can submit your site by by copying your URL (The address at the top of the page that begins http:www.mywebsite.com.) and pasting it in the box the pinging service indicates.

Your feed would be submitted the same way if the site accepts feeds. Not all sites do, so you will need to read the instructions on the submission page.

You will also find other tips for getting traffic to your lens, website or blog.

If you find my lens helpful, please rate it and leave a comment.

Thanks!

How Often Do You Ping? - Take the Ping Poll

You should ping after a major update, so the search engines know you have new content. I don't always do that due to either lack of time, or I'm feeling lazy. I have noticed traffic from the search engines picks up quicker if I do take the time to ping.

Do you ping often?

See results

Free Ping Services - My List Of Ping Services In No Particular Order

I want to provide a word of caution when using this list.

Do Not submit to all the ping services. Each service will usually update the many of same directories and search engines, so by submitting to more than one ping service it can be considered spamming. Pick you favorite ping site and use just that one.

You only need to submit to one ping service!

Submit Your Site Directly To The Major Search Engines - Another Free Way To Get Traffic

You don't have to wait for the search engines to find your website, you can submit your site directly to the search engines to crawl and index. Keep in mind that it still might take a bit of time as I am sure they have a long list.

How -To Automatically Ping Your Blog - Set Up WordPress To Automaticall Ping Your Blog

Let me know if you find any dead links. Also alert me if you have a problem with any of the Ping Services so that I can take them off of my lens.

Feel free to Contact Me if you have any suggestions. I am always looking to add new links.

Thanks!

Don't forget to Add To Favorites or Join My Fanclub so you will know when I add more links and information.

Tas Anak , Tas Remaja, Tas Sekolah yang paling banyak digunakan adalah Tas Ransel. Pemakaian tas ransel dengan cara yang tidak benar, misal tali ransel yang kecil atau tanpa bantalan, ransel dipakai hanya menggunakan satu tali di pundak, jumlah beban yang terlalu berat, akan dapat mengakibatkan gangguan atau nyeri pada punggung, leher dan bahu diikuti dengan munculnya rasa kaku dan linu pada lengan. Cara pemakaian yang tidak benar dalam jangka waktu panjang akan berdampak buruk pada kesehatan anak.

      Berikut TIPS memilih Tas Ransel untuk anak:

      - Tas ransel yang baik memiliki bantalan di bagian bahu, punggung, serta MEMILIKI pengikat di bagian pinggang. Bantalan di bahu berfungsi untuk mengurangi tekanan pada bahu dari TALI RANSEL yang kecil. Bantalan pada bagian punggung meredam benturan tas (dan isinya) ke punggung anak. Pengikat pada bagian pinggang dan dada berfungsi MeNSTABILKAN beban dari tas ransel.

      - Tas terbuat dari material yang TebaL, KUAT, jahitan yangTIDAK mudah lepas.

      - Bahan tas sebaiknya tidak mudah menyerap air untuk melindungi buku atau Perlengkapan Anak yang ada dalam tas, sehingga tidak langsung basah bila terkena tumpahan minuman, air hujan atau cipratan air.

      - Menggunakan tas ransel dengan benar, yaitu 2 tali ransel di digunakan di pundak kanan-kiri. Bila hanya digunakan 1 tali , atau digunakan hanya di satu sisi pundak maka beban berat akan menarik punggung sehingga tubuh cenderung maju ke depan sebagai reaksi tarikan tersebut. Hal ini dapat menekan atau bahkan merusak tulang belakang yang menyebabkan nyeri punggung dan leher. Kecenderungan untuk mengarahkan tubuh ke depan mengakibatkan anak mengarahkan bahunya ke depan sehingga dapat menekan paru-paru. Hal ini tanpa disadari akan mengakibatkan masalah pada anak yang menderita asma.

      - Jangan memasukkan barang berlebihan dalam tas, tidak membawa beban terlalu berat dan membiasakan membawa barang sesuai dengan keperluan saja.

      Dengan pemilihan jenis tas ransel yang baik dan cara penggunaan yang tepat akan memberi kenyamanan pada anak dalam segala aktivitas dan kesehatannya.

      Jika anda suka membeli tas untuk anak, maka rawatlah koleksi tas tersebut agar tidak mudah rusak dan tetap tahan lama. Tas berkualitas bagus dan berharga mahal pun akan cepat rusak jika tidak rajin-rajin dalam memberikan perawatan bagi setiap detailnya.

      1. Jika anak mempunyai beberapa tas, sebaiknya menyimpan tas anak yang sedang tidak dipakai dalam dustbag (kantong penyimpanan). Hindari mengeluarkan tas dan membiarkan tas terkena udara dan angin dalam jangka waktu lama. Pastikan tas yang tidak terpakai disimpan di tempat tertutup dan bersih dari debu.

      2. Jika memilih untuk menyimpan tas anak di dalam lemari, pastikan anda menyertakan produk anti lembab atau anti jamur. Letakkan produk tersebut di dekat tas untuk menghindari tas anda berjamur dan kotor.

      3. Jika bahan tas dari kulit, pastikan tas terhindar dari kontak matahari langsung karena bisa membuat permukaan kulit rusak dan pecah-pecah. Tas kulit rentan terhadap sobekan, gesekan dan ke

      anonymous 5 years ago

      Hi, Great lens! Does ping.fm also ping to directories? because i can add/setup some sites with ping.fm so that they also put a link, and it allows you to add a little comment. Not really the normal pinging. I saw a tool that increase the views of an article on ezines, by pinging and using different proxies. So, will the views of a normal page increase too, with the normal pinging and is pinging also like a visitor? Because if the pingservices are, then they probably stay a milli second so the visitors stick time on the site will decrease highly in google analytics.... thanks for answering if you want.

      @777Jessica: Hi,

      It's usually not necessary to ping your bookmarks. You ping only if you need your content crawled and indexed. Bookmarking, social media and other high content sites are usually crawled often, so there is no need to ping.

      Also, pinging a bookmarking profile too often can be considered spamming and can eventually cause you problems. You may want to read my lens on bookmarking. It has some excellent tips on how to get the most from it.

      @anonymous: Hello Mathias, when you make a big change to your site, like adding a lot of new content, a new page, change the order of your pages or the links between your pages then you should ping your site or the page you made the change to. This way the search engines and other directories know that there is new stuff that they need to crawl and index. When they think your site is updated they are more likely to send you more traffic. Make sure you don't do this unless you make a big change otherwise they think of it like spamming. I hope this helps.

I use Pingler.com but they restrict you to only 5 pings per day and when I am doing my marketing and posting press releases I always ping the URL to the press release and this limit of 5 per day is a problem. Now that I have a couple more pinging sites to research I may have a solution now. A+ on all the info you provided.

      @PrestonSchumach1: If you ping your site or articles, you also want to ping your Feedburner settings to ping. Feedburner will ping your feed and not your site or articles. You do not need to submit directly to the search engines and ping them. If you still don't see them indexed after a few days, then I would submit them directly to the search engines.

    • PrestonSchumach1 profile image

      PrestonSchumach1 6 years ago

      If I am pinging through Pingler, should I set my Feedburner settings to ping as well? Also, should I still submit my new article links to Google, Bing, and Yahoo on top of pinging them through Pingler?

      Thanks for your advice. This stuff can get kind of overwhelming at times. BTW, great and informative lens!

      @fantasticallyfi: It depends on what you are pinging. If you are pinging a Squidoo lens, then the ping tool on Squidutils provided by thefluffanutta is good to use. This is the first one on my list. Feedshark is good for podcasts and feeds. I don't have any favorites for websites or blogs.

      I'm not saying that these particular pinging tools that I am recommending are best, these are just the ones that I prefer. I have not done any research as to which would provide the best results.
