One Click Blog Pinging Services : Alternatives to Pingomatic

Blog and Ping! Pinging lets dozens of services which specifically track and connect blogs to know you’ve updated so they can come check you out. I was using Pingomatic for several months, but maybe it has become so popular with bloggers, that it many times does not connect for me or works very slow. So what are alternatives to Pingomatic?

So I set out to look for alternative pinging services that ping or notify a number of blogging services that keep track of weblogs and publish them. By pinging, you let the services know that your blog has been updated and hence, they crawl and index your site, publishing your blog contents, thus increasing your blog's popularity.

Remember pinging is important if you use feedburner feed and support for the single feed policy since feedburner will come crawling around after you ping it and update your feed with the latest content. And based on its content other blog tracking services will update. Also read - Blog & Ping : better feed aggregation by more index posts.

So here are the Blog Pinging Services -

Pingomatic - the most popular. Pings several popular services and specialized services. Create a bookmark for each ping url.

King Ping - Pings multiple services - 18 in all. Easy to check and uncheck boxes. And you can also create a bookmark with your settings.

Blogflux Pinger - Pings 32 services, including several specialized services and language specific services too.

Pingoat - Pings a huge collection of 64 blogging services, including special services and non english tracking services. You can easily select all services by selecting the category.

PingMyBlog - is a simple service which pings selected 8 popular blog tracking services

Feedshark - Although many services are on one page, you have to individually click submit for each service.

Blogomatic - Just enter the rss url and it submits to all the 12 listed services. You do not need to select each service.

BlogBlip - Just enter the blog url and it will submit to 15 popular blog tracking services. - pings 16 popular services. 3 are ticked, rest you have to select.

Update: I went ahead and tried Pingoat since it pinged the most services, I selected all services to ping and it amazingly pinged all these services ina few seconds with no errors. I created a bookmark for that url and now I have a Pingomatic alternative.

Please let me know of more services which I can add to this list and keep it updated. Till then Blog and ping!
