  4. Hello, I’m new to all of this. What do you mean by pinging? And would it be beneficial to a product web site?

    • If you use WordPress software, you’ll know what I mean. Pinging is a web service that will invite search engine bots to visit and crawl your web site or blog whenever you post a new article. Thus it will get your web site or blog indexed right away.

      Think about this, how do people find your web site or blog? They have to type in keywords or keyword phrases in the search engine box, right? Then those web sites or blogs that have that search term(s) are listing below, right? If your web site or blog are not indexed by those search engine bots, then people will never find your web site or blog. Thus pinging will help people find your web site or blog. Does this make any sense to you?

  5. Thanks this is good information.
