I get a lot of people asking me what sites I ping in WordPress. So I have decided to simply publish the list I use. This is a list I have been using for years and it works great. I will make sure to keep this list up to date as things change.
What Does Pinging Do?
When you ping a service it notifies the world that your blog, website, RSS feed, or podcast has recently been updated or created.
If you are using Yoast SEO, there is no need to Ping Yahoo or Ask.com as the plugin does it for you. Also, if you are submitting a sitemap file to Google and Bing (which you should be), you also don’t need to bother pinging them.
My WordPress Ping List
My list is a compilation of the XML-RPC Ping Services from WordPress.org and Vladimir’s WordPress Ping List, the founder of ManageWP. This is just one of my strategies I use to get my blog posts indexed within 24 hours of posting. I don’t recommend over pinging as this can lead to site penalties.

Here is a txt version of my WordPress Ping List with the line breaks removed.
Where Do I Add this in WordPress?
First copy my ping list above.
In WordPress, go to “Settings > Writing.”
At the bottom there is a section for “Update Services.” By default in WordPress they have http://rpc.pingomatic.com. Delete whatever you have in there and paste the list above.
As always I would love to hear what you think or maybe you have a ping list already? I would love to see it.
