One of my biggest mistake in my early days of blogging is ignoring the importance of pinging my blog. Yes, it is a normal thing to do mistake at our first try, but somehow I regret for ignoring this important thing although I started blogging as a hobby.
Ping is a method and update tool used to let search engines and other people know that the contents of a web blog has been updated. Sending pings will attracts search engines like Google and Yahoo! to track the new content of your blog. When you send a ping, it notifies all popular search engine crawlers and other update services. Some blog authoring tools automatically ping one or more servers each time the blogger creates a new post or updates an old content.
