MaxBlogPress Ping Optimizer – Your WordPress Ping Solution

There is a recurring problem with pinging and search engines.  The simple fact is that if you edit your blog posts too many times you will be seen as a spammer and your site will be ‘blacklisted’.

Your blog may already be banned, and you may not know it.  If you used the scheduling posts service during the 2.1 version this was also a reason for the search engines to ban your site due to excessive pinging.  WordPress have now fixed this and your site will ping on publising, not on pre-booked posts that are waiting to be released on your blog.

Any plug in you may have installed previously to solve these ping issues could well be inactive now and not doing the job you thought it was.  Smart Update Pinger, Ping Fix and WP Cron Future Ping do not work with the new version of WordPress (v.3 and above).

“MaxBlogPress Ping Optimizer plugin” corrects WordPress’s pinging system and solves all the problems listed above for even the latest version of WordPress ”

After you install it:

  • When you create a new post, your blog will ping and notify all the ping services that it has been updated. This encourages search engines and different blog directories/services to index your updated blog properly.
  • When you edit an existing post, it won’t send an unnecessary ping to ping services and saves your blog from getting banned.
  • When you post a future post by editing the time stamp, it will ping only when your post appears in future. It won’t unnecessarily ping many times when you schedule posts as WordPress does by default.

And best of all it is a free plug in, as many are.  Go and get yours here: MaxBlogPress Ping Optimizer.

    Are you sure it auto pings future posts? The plugin says it doesn’t. Otherwise, I agree, it’s a rocking plugin!

      Not sure where you read that, James. Here is a quote directly from their site:

      After you install it:

      * When you create a new post, your blog will ping and notify all the ping services that it has been updated. This encourages search engines and different blog directories/services to index your updated blog properly.

      * When you edit an existing post, it won’t send an unnecessary ping to ping services and saves your blog from getting banned.

      * When you post a future post by editing the time stamp, it will ping only when your post appears in future. It won’t unnecessarily ping many times when you schedule posts as WordPress does by default.

      Enjoy the journey.
