Top 24 Word Press Blog Ping List- Current to August 2008 (Sorry- English Only At This Time)
The Top 24 list below I have compiled from various sources, and is designed for English based blogs. I put together this list out of selfishness and frustration that there seem to be no current scrubbed Word Press Ping Lists available. Specifically, the list that Elliot Back did in 2004 is sorely outdated. I have verified each site manually as of July 31/2008, but make no guarantees. If you feel I have missed an essential English based site to ping, please post a comment and I will update the list.
For those new to blogging a blog ping is : A notification to a web site that a blog has been created or updated. That’s a good thing and should bring your blog more visitors, as long as you don’t over do it. You can read up more on it here: Blog Ping
Just copy and paste the above list in your WordPress admin, Go to Options->Writing -> and on the bottom of the page is Update Services, paste the list there, and ping away!!!
Important: Here is a free WordPress Plugin (MaxBlogPress Ping Optimizer) which helps optimize your pings to ensure sites don’t ban you! Yes, if you ping too much they will toast your blog. http://www.maxblogpress.com/go.php?offer=leeraito&pid=6
