Ping Your Websites To Increase Traffic

Updated on February 25, 2010

Let People And Search Engines Know..

First of all, please don't confuse yourselves with the term Ping related to networking. Here I want to talk about the pinging process. That is nothing but notifying or informing the search engines that you have just updated your blog. This is a highly recommended method to get targeted traffic to your blogs with in days. Notifying search engines means notifying people. Random traffic is useless. But what about the targeted ones. That's what we are discussing here.

Targeted Traffic is the life blood for adsense earnings as well as your favorite product sales. So in order to get this, you have to actually find out the people from your niche. Or the ones which are looking for some solution. Surfing and finding out such traffic is really not practical. So in order to achieve this, we make use of the art of pinging. Everything is just a click away.  

Pinging Services Do it For You

You are not going to involve in any tedious task. Pinging is really easy and it won't take more than a minute to ping your latest updates. Some of the best services are mentioned here.

Ping-o-matic! is really a good service which can submit your blog updates to a lot of popular directories or blogospheres like technorati, delicious and even more. All you have to do is just submit your URL and add tags if asked. That's all. With in minutes, everything is notified to people and search engines.

Pingoat is yet another powerful service which offers the same facilities just like the normal ones.

Article Pinger is a fascinating service which convey something more than pinging. You can see the latest pings done by the bloggers of various niches in the home page itself. So, you can find out people from your niche easily. Similarly, after pinging your site, your URL and post previews would appear in the home page so that the  targeted audience never miss you.

How Often Should You Ping?

Pinging is not at all a serous task but its effective as far as blogs and their readership is concerned. So you are recommended to ping your blogs whenever you post a new article. That will help your blog t gain more visibility and thus increase in targeted traffic.

      Hi Mywebs. You won't need to ping your hubs as hubs are of high authority far more than your blog pages.
