Do you ping Google when you update your sitemap?

Discussion in 'Google Sitemaps' started by John Martinez 2, Aug 14, 2017.

    When I update my website, I can see in access logs, that Google downloads my sitemap within 48 hours. If I use something like this - https://submit-sitemap.com/ - I can see in my logs immediately, that Google has downloaded my sitemap.
    May I be penalized for pinging Google for pinging them too much?

    Why you do this, submit your sitemap to WT and it's good, there is no need to this. Even if you do not the use the sitemap, there is no issue, but content matters so update the content and Google is smart enough to find the new content in the websites.

    If you update your XML sitemap - I do not see any harm in informing Google that you updated it - afterall - why else would Google create a specific option for informing them? :)

    Note: Of course you should not be "hammering" Google all the time 24/7 with sitemap pings.
