Pinging Your Blogs to Search Engines

Recent Ping-o-matic Server Problems

For those of you not familiar with it, Ping-o-matic is a serivce which allows you to ping your blogs to 12 blog directories by just submitting it to them once. You can submit your blog through their web site, or even better, through their XML-RPC interface. (The XML-RPC interface is a way to ping your blogs through a direct channel instead of visiting their web site each time)

However, as their service is new, the web site and their XML-RPC service goes down a bit too often, leaving you without the ability to ping the blog aggregators.

There is a nice software tool available called Blog Blaster http://www.dummysoftware.com/blogblaster.html, which allows you to ping over 30 blog aggregators with one click. This software includes Ping-o-matic in their list of sites to ping, in addition to a lot more. I highly recommend checking it out as an additional asset or even as an alternative to just using Pingomatic.
