When do search engines pick up on your blog updates? What if I told you there is a way to manually ping over 20 top search engines in less than 1 second? Would you believe me?

Welcome to Ping-O-Matic! A free service by the WordPress Foundation, this tool lets you ping your selected search engines with a single click. Every time you publish an article, you have to go to the site and click the ‘Send Pings’ button.

With me, I just leave the Ping-O-Matic site up in one of my tabs, and with every update of my blog, I click on the tag, click the button, and I’m done. No exaggeration; the entire process takes me a fraction of a second.

One great feature is if your blog update has recently been recognized by search engines, Ping-O-Matic will let you know and won’t actually push the ping.

If I earned a penny for every question I see when search engines ping your blog, I could buy every visitor I ever had a beer. The good news is that you’ll always know moving forward since you’re the one doing it.

Oh, and BTW, there is no disclosure on this since I’m not an affiliate. Why? Because it’s FREE! No catch; just enjoy.
