Google Blog Search Offers Pinging to Get Your Blog Indexed

Google today announced that you can now ping their blog search service to let them know when you’ve updated.

You can manually ping it here or do it automatically if you’re a WP user by adding http://blogsearch.google.com/ping/RPC2 to your ‘update services’ (under options/writing).

They will continue to watch other ping services so if you’re already listed in blog search you’ll probably be fine but it never hurts to ping them directly.

  1. Cool, this will hopefully speed up indexes. I have notices MSN is kicking google’s behind the last few months.

  2. Mark says:

    That’s for that! I’ve added my sites in and Google picked it up extremely fast! They got something from my blogspot site as little as 3 minutes ago. :O

  3. Matt says:

    I added this to Ping-O-Matic.

  4. Google has been very very slow for our entire blogging network. IT happens but MSN is much faster!

  5. sandeep says:

    Well Google seems to be very slow to crawl site created with blogspot and other free blog hosting services.

    They started http://www.blogchalking.com/ for speeding up but nothing happened. To them “free” means “spam”.

  6. Thanks again for the usefull information. I just pinged!

  7. TimSchroeder says:

    Great! Thanks for the headsup Darren.

  8. brem says:

  9. Fantastic! I’ll be hopping on this asap today, Darren. Cheers, mate!

  10. PreZ says:

    Wow thank you for posting this, seems like this will really help rankings in google for my blog.

  11. Andre says:

    Luckily, you have a few clued up readers…

  12. Dark Kent says:

    Thanks. I just started my blog and I was wondering how in the world to get listed in the search engines.

  13. Layne says:

    Thanks Darren. I did not know that I could ping them directly. I am going off to ping them now. Cheers!

  14. [...] Even prior to this month’s launch of Google’s own ping server, I’ve long thought that Google Blog search search is one of the best options available. Unless I want to filter sources by number of inbound links, or peruse an index of blogs (both Technorati’s strong points) then Google Blogsearch is my preferred choice. I’ve found anecdotaly that it finds new blog posts faster than other blog search engines and some very rough research we did backed that conclusion up. [...]

  15. [...] Google 自身の ping サーバ の今月のローンチ の前から、ぼくはGoogle Blog Search はトップクラスのブログ検索サービスのひとつだと考えていた。ブログの購読者数を参考にしたり、インデックスを片端から読んだり (こういう機能では Technoratiが強い)しないですむのが Google Blogsearch が気に入っている点だ。 正確に計測したわけではないが、ぼくの実感では他の検索エンジンよりもGoogle Blog Searchの方が新しいブログの記事を発見するスピードが速いのではないか。ごく荒っぽい調査だがこれは本当だと思う。 [...]
