    This thread was very useful to understand about pinging search engines. I have a website where new products are added every day. But the new product pages get crawled many months later or some never even get crawled by search engines.

    I heard about Pinging and I wanted to know what URL should I ping every time a new product page is created? Should I ping www.mywebsite.com or should I ping www.mywebsite.com/newproductlink1, www.mywebsite.com/newproductlink2 and so on?

    Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    In the context of this trhread, a ping is just a signal sent, usually from a blog to a search engine or a ping service to tell it that it's been updated.

    When the SE or ping service receives the ping it sends a spider out to see whats new.

    can you share clear info, how to use this?

    Well, as a minimum, you can create a php file with those few php lines of code. Call it ping.php.

    Replace the websitedomain details with your own website name, and sitemap.xml name.

    Upload the file and just open it in your browser.

    When you open the file in your browser you won't see anything but the hourglass will display while the script works. When its finished, the cursor will change to the default setting.

    I will knock up a more user friendly version later and upload.

    OK, here's a basic script to do this.

    Just upload it -call it whatever-you-want.php

    Open it in your browser, then enter a url in the field and click the button.

    It might not always work depending on your server etc.

    Hope you find it useful

    Hi!
    I am a running a news website. We publish news as it happens. Can some one tell me how to inform search engines when a new page is published? To do this manually is not possible. I am looking for a automated ping software which can ping to search engines whenever a new page is published by us. Do some one know this type of software or any other method using which i can inform search engines on real time rather waiting for search engines to crawl my pages because this is news website.
    Regards.

    If you open up an ms-dos prompt window and simply type "ping urlofsearchgine" you will ping them (or any site for that matter)

    1. Blog platform, cms, shopping cart have this function in-build. You don't have to ping search engines manually

    2. I don't use any other method to ping search engine. Most of the time, i use the power of social bookmarking and spider will come to you. Off course, a sitemap is a must.

    There are an assortment of really good ping tools. I prefer Pingler and Pingomatic, as they are regularly updated.

    I am looking for auto submission. It is not possible for me to visit these sites and put my url to ping bcoz there are so many content writers are writing for this website and i can not pig each page individually. A software has to be there who is on my server. Whenever a new page is published immediately it should ping to all the search engines. Software should be on my server. Kindly guide me on this.
