WordPress Ping List (2017) Services [UPDATED]


If you want to know about WordPress Ping List, then you should be aware of “Update Services”, which are tools that let others know that you have updated your blog. WordPress usually sends an XML-RPC ping whenever you publish (or update) a post. (XML-RPC is a remote procedure call protocol which uses XML to encode its calls and HTTP as a transport mechanism. – via Wikipedia)

WordPress Ping List

WordPress by default uses Ping-O-Matic’s server (, which is a popular ‘ping’ service. But apart from this, we also have some other popular and useful ping services, we’ll be adding them to our WordPress ping list.


6 Tricks To Get Your New Domain Indexed Fast In Search Engines

These services will help your blog and blog posts to index faster in majority of the search engines.

Ultimate WordPress Ping List

If you have a popular authority blog, then the chances are high that your blog will be properly indexed asap you publish new content. But when you have a new or average blog then you might face issues with blog post-indexing, this is where this ping list comes handy. This will help the search engine bots to crawl your posts and index them quickly.

Go to “Settings” > “Writing” > “Update Services”

You can now copy the content below (the list of URLs) and paste it there. Then go to the bottom and click on “Save Changes” button. That’s it; you have successfully updated your WordPress ping list.

Note: Edit the first two links with your site URL and name.

So whenever you publish a new content, WordPress will automatically notify these site update services (Ping services). The ones mentioned in the WordPress Codex are kind of outdated, so I modified the list a bit and published it here.

Earlier people used to ping their blog posts and article manually using such services, but now thanks to WordPress, this is simplified.

      Blogs I work on automatically gets indexed in a day or two.

      Do I still need to update these ping services?


      • Pradeep Kumar

        Hi Vineet, how old is your blog? If your blog is new and articles getting indexed in a day or two is fine. But if your blog is old and having a decent authority, then the articles should be indexed within minutes or max an hour.

          Oks. Im working on a website whose blog we started 2 months back.

          Another website whose blog is 3 years old.

      I’m just using WordPress without knowing these things and indexing new pages manually in Google. Its a relax to know that WordPress is doing it instantly. I’ll edit it with my site.
      Thank you..
