Update 2012:
Stop using a big ping list – You’re just adding to the noise.
Pingomatic is all you need…

Old Info:
Having a big ping list added to your WordPress blog is not going to make or break you, but the more exposure, the better, right?

At a recent presentation I gave about using WordPress, I was adding a slide about the ping list, and decided to count them. I was surprised to see that there were only 46, but that’s what I put in the slide.

Apparently, at some point over the last couple of dozen installations, I dropped off a batch from my list, and even my own blog was running short.

Going back through my files and folders, and even some old blogs, I’ve now recompiled my ping list, and removed the duplicates, and I’m posting them here for your viewing pleasure.

To add to your ping list –

  • login to WordPress admin
  • go to the options tab
  • go to the writing sub tab
  • scroll further down than you probably ever have before
  • paste into the field

There’s an old thread here at Digitalpoint with some detailed info for better pinging too, but I disagree with the detractors there. My own experience has shown me that it’s NOT a wasted or duplicated effort, I prefer these “manual” pings over Pingomatic, and that the no ping waiting plugin is was very cool. (sorry, the domain is gone!)

That’s it. Feel free to copy and paste my list below, with no reciprocal link required, no thanks necessary, and no paypal donation sent to scott (at) pdxtc.com 😉

(I would however appreciate any comments added here if you notice anything missing…)

*** update May 2010***

In the 2 1/2 years since I wrote this post, ping services have grown, and while I’ve never seen anyone get banned for over-0pinging, I’ve heard about it, and reducing redundant pings is a good thing.

Therefore, I recommend you read the May 28 2010 commenters article below –

which recommends using two other WordPress plugins that will eliminate pinging after an edit and another that will eliminate duplicates from your ping list
