Adding a ping list to your WordPress website helps faster indexing of your post/page updates.
Ping- not so common word in our day to day conversation, often used to get someone’s attention. Here, ping services are used in the same way but to get the attention of search engines.
When you post something new/update on your website, these Ping services notify search engines such as Google, Bing and other search engines to index those updates fast.
Step by Step process to add the Ping list to your WordPress website.
1. On the WP admin dashboard, navigate to settings.
2. Click on writing and then Update the services link. A new window will open.
3. Now, scroll down to the page, you will see a list of ping services, copy and paste them inside the box.
Alternatively, you can directly open this link, copy the list and paste in WP admin > setting > writing.
*Pingomatic is by default in WordPress, adding more ping services help your website updates index faster.
