    Okay, so there was a thread somewhere out there where I saw someone recommend "pinging" my hubs. I "pinged" one of them and the traffic has increased DRAMATICALLY. I want to ping my other hubs too, but I cannot find the website I did it on, nor can I find the thread where it was mentioned! Does anyone know what I'm talking about? If you'd give me the link again, I'd be much obliged smile

      Hi Pani,

      The websites are pingler dot com and pingomatic dot com.

      I told the forum thread it works. You have also proven that. The idea of pinging means all those search engine bots finds your page and indexes them. I mean all search engines not just G Y and Bing.

      Thanks, I've tried typing every version of the word "ping" followed by .com into my URL, but all that comes up is "This domain is for sale." big_smilebig_smilebig_smile

      I'm hoping someone will stumble across this thread and know what I'm talking about big_smile

    I just don't see how these sites could help that much. Do all of the sites they ping for you automatically add a link to your site?

    If so then your losing something there. You have no control over the Title, Description or Anchor text used to link back to your Hub. All three of these are key to effective SEO practices. You really do not want for many web sites to all be using the same big 3 I just listed. You want natural, closely related variations.

    While it may make getting many links fast with little work easy, your defiantly giving something up in exchange in my opinion.

    There is nothing like doing it all manually for the best possible results.

    I will give them a try later to see. But I really am quite skeptical of how much this will help for Google rankings which is about all I care about unless the traffic is comparable to Google.

    Am I missing something here, or is this how they work?

      To ping the hubs, I had to type the title, type the link, select a category for indexing, and enter a code at the bottom. I'm pretty sure you have full control over the three key factors for SEO practices.

      And yes, they really work. After I pinged my first hub, I took a look at my traffic for that hub. It was at 25 views. Went to sleep for about 2 hours, came back and my views had already risen to 46. For the last two days, there has been a beautiful red arrow next to that hub and I am currently at 117 views.

      Oh yes, pinging a hub is great. And did I mention my hub has risen to the 4th listed on the 1st page of Google when you type in the title of the hub? big_smile I am utterly pleased.

      Well I really can't answer that as your profile says your knowledgeable in seo.

      However, in my view, the pinging helps the various search engines to find your site. Pinging is not linking, a ping is alerting the sites you have new content and your asking them to come and have a look.

      If you own a domain you might try seo.woothy dot com for some real serious page backlinks. Often PR6 and above. (If anyone has any questions then just send an email).

      It's the old saying as I am sure you would know, write a page and build backlinks. Pinging is one way to do this.

      It works, doesn't it Pani?

      P.S. From an seo point of view ask yourself what does a sitemap do when all of those hundreds of search engine bots visit and read the xml. Enough said on that point.

    I'm not saying this doesn't work, I'm just trying to figure out *how it works* more than anything.

    I never did the blog thing. Ive heard of pings and know they relate to blogs, but I never really got the concept. Maybe I do a bit better now possibly. Seems I need to study "pinging" later.

    It does look like most of the sites these services submit to are blogs or blog feed services.

    Thanks I'll try out seo.woothy dot com later.

    I never felt the need for a sitemap. I usually had no trouble getting my pages into the big three, Google, Yahoo and Bing. Just extra work unless you have a big web site imo.

    I wrote the guides on Pingler dot com.

    Unfortunately I see Pinging services as another fad, which has some minor benefits, but should not become something you obsess over!

      Maybe you could tell me if you wrote the guides, if the Premium service is worthwhile purchasing. If so can you also let me know the benefits of having the premium service.

      Thanks, I look
      forward to your response.

    When you write new hub then and only then you should ping your hubs using either-

    but as has more feed bots, it's better to use pingler.

      I hadn't heard of this before so I went to pingler dot com and you have to pay $2 a month? or is it free to try?

      1. IzzyM profile image87
        IzzyMposted 14 years agoin reply to this

        Must be free for so many. I've sent a couple off. Let you know if it works!

        skyfireposted 14 years agoin reply to this

        It is free of cost. You can even add more feedbots into the list they've in textbox. Just scroll and you'll see textfield for entering your details. They just added 2$ ad for premium but they still do have free service on main page.

    I figured it can't hurt to try it.  i submitted two of my hubs and will be interested to see how the traffic moves.

    I used a few of these when I started here but kinda gave up on them because they weren't doing much for me. I have to admit that when I look at my first hubs, I despair, I clearly had no idea what people would want to read. A few lucky hits with a topic and lots of reading later I see a huge improvement  my abilities here smile. I might just ping a few of the hubs that do well already, see if it gives em a shot in the arm. The ones that I found and have had open for months now on the dock! yikes are
    mypagerank dot net

    I found there were quite a lot to choose from last summer and those were all I could handle! Pages loading were so annoying!

    It's good to have a list of your Hubs on file, Hub urls, join, etc., then all you have to do is copy and paste. smile just some thoughts.

    What timing!  I received an email from them just today.  I started with a couple of weeks ago and have not seen results.  Perhaps this is due to my new status as a computer user-1 year and self-taught-but I do want hubbers to know that customer service there is awesome.  I have been in touch with a rep named "Garo" and he has been incredibly helpful. 
    If you know what you're after, I'd recommend; as for me, computers 101. lol

      Hadn't heard of pingler will give it a whirl. I was using pinggoat but wasnt seeing much results.

    I tried for the first time. I was getting about 300-500 daily for page views. However, since I pinged via pingler I have watched my Hubs have a steady increase in traffic.

    Does it transform to clicks? I finished yesterday with 16 clicks and that's using pingler only on half my hubs.

    For yesterday and today- I am averaging about 800-900 page views.

    So, I do not know about everyone else. But, to me it seems like it has helped. smile

    That's my take on it. smile
