    Is it worthy to ping our hubpages rss feeds using sites like ping-o-matic?

      Yes it sure is, however only use ping-o-matic as they inform the other ping services. Dont post to all the ping services yourself as your hub may get penalized for duplicate content and spam. Ping-o-matic is all that is needed.

    I used to use PingoMatic and ended up getting lazy and stopped. I thought it was really beneficial to get my hubs indexed faster. Then, I realized that since HubPages is such a high-authority site that almost all quality hubs are indexed within 12 hours, if not within the first two hours. If it makes you feel better, then I won't tell you to stop. smile However, I haven't used it for my last 20 or so hubs and the traffic is still the same as when I pinged my hubs upon publication. Therefore, I'd conclude that it absolutely isn't necessary and isn't very beneficial (for Hubpages, at least)

      you will be surprised ping is a quick way to generate backlinks to your hub.

      the more popular the subject the more backlinks you will find. when you ping your hub url your links gets indexed within blog directories like Google's blog search.

      This is instant backlinks, after you are listed within the blog other site admins will come and copy your header including title and about 150 characters from the top of your hub. they use these to make a site out of. Not sure why people still do it as google was onto that scam a long time ago, but who cares these fools will give you more targeted backlinks.

      remember though the more popular the subject the more backlinks you will generate from ping alone. also note subject does not mean keywords so don't get confused.
