Have you been experiencing slow indexing by search engines such as Google, Bing and Yandex each time you post an article, does it take weeks to get your articles Indexed by search engines, then worry no more, there is a solution for that. In this very article I’m going to detail out 10 best pinging sites to index your website and articles very fast (Within 2days).

Every blogger’s dream is to see that his or her articles gets indexed and ranked on search engines. The main purpose for this target is to gain more traffic, more recognition and more money.
Frankly speaking it gives no joy to see your hard written resourceful article not indexed by search engines. Therefore, I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to wait for Google (and other search engines) to index your articles at their own time.

There is this saying which says if mohammed doesn’t go to the mountain, the mountain will come to mohammed. If Google takes time to index your article, then you have to fasten up the indexation process by pinging Google and other search engines to index your newly published and updated articles.

Remember, It’s important you submit your website and sitemap to Google, Bing and Yandex webmaster tools for SEO optimization. This is very necessary to get your website crawled and articles Indexed, which increases your search engines visibility.

Before we commence to what the article is all about let us know what a ping is.

What is a Ping?

Pinging is the process of sending notifications to search engines to tell them that your page has been updated or has to be re-crawled. It’s a way of notifying search engines to crawl your newly published or updated article. This process is done with the help of pinging websites.

In SEO, pinging means to tell search engines about your newly created backlinks so that they are crawled and are counted.

if you have published something new or have just updated an article, you can get Google (or other search engines) to re-crawl your page faster. When they do, your rankings improves.

However, if you have authoritative and legit links (backlinks), then you likely don’t need to ping. Because search engines will easily find your links without you needing to do anything because your blog already has a high domain authority.

What Are The Benefits Of Pinging Sites?

  • Your articles gets Indexed quickly on search engines giving you advantage over your competitors and better ranking.
  • Quick and Fast Indexing Of Backlinks
  • Easy submission on Multiple Search Engines

You can as well ping your article directly by entering your article keyword, and article link, select category (if given), then you ping.

Note: It’s important you should only ping your website when you’ve updated contents/articles or backlinks in your site, this is because sending too many pings will get your website penalized by search engines like google and bing. This is because they’ll consider your site as spam. So you have to be careful while using ping submission sites.

Note: I want to remind you again that excessive pinging of your website could get your website penalized. Only ping your website when you publish a new article or update your old post.

Excessive pinging is just like asking a friend a question over and over again, what happens? He goes mad or angry at you. That’s exactly what happens when you ping your site excessively. Search engines penalizes your site. You can also use plugins like WordPress ping optimizer to be on the safe side.

Install and activate WordPress Ping Optimizer Plugin. You can read how to install and activate plugins in WordPress.
After installation and activation, click on plugin setting.

Then Check the 2 options “Enable pinging” and “Limit excessive pinging in short time”. I chose max 1 time within 10 minutes to be safe. Then click on Save Settings Just as indicated in the picture below.


Don’t Want To Go Through The Stress Of Manually Pinging Your Site?

By default WordPress automatically pings Pingomatic each time you publish an article.

If you’re using WordPress (which is mostly recommended), under “Settings >> Writing”, scroll down to Update Services, WordPress will automatically notify Pingomatic about anything you post.


So technically, you don’t actually have to manually ping your articles, WordPress will automatically alert Pingomatic for you.

Ping-O-Matic is a service that is listed by default and WordPress sends updates to that server each time you create new or update old content. This leads to increased exposure because visitors are able to see your most recently indexed content.

You know what? You can add other pinging services too.

I have compiled a list of ping services for WordPress, which will help you to ping more services if a new update is done on your website. Here is list of my working WordPress ping list.

How Do I Add or Update WordPress Ping List?

Login to your WordPress dashboard. Click on Setting >> Then click on >> Writting and scroll down to Update Services and copy all the above ping list and paste them in the box provided. Then click on Save Settings. Here is a screenshot for quick understanding:


But remember to install, activate and set the ping optimizer plugin (just the way I’ve stated above) to regulate the pinging process just to be on a safer side.

In Conclusion

Ping sites helps notify search engines on your newly published or updated articles. When they are notified, your new update gets crawled and Indexed quickly.
Ping sites also helps index backlinks too. The whole essence of pinging sites is to notify search engines and get your newly published article Indexed. This gives you advantage over your competitors.

Note: I have to warn again. Only ping your website when you have a newly published or updated article. Don’t ping excessively to avoid attracting search engines penalty.
