Just What Is Blogging and Pinging??? No…it’s NOT a new video game! Blogging and Pinging is actually a way to finally get YOU something that you’ve been searching for…a steady flow of good, targeted free visitors to your website. Wouldn’t that make your life simpler? Want to read on? Let’s start with a definition of a blog. Blog is short for weblog. A weblog is a journal that is frequently updated and intended for general public consumption. Blogs generally represent the personality of the author or the Web site.
Ok, so what about pinging? Originally, a ping was a program that bounced a request off of another computer/server over a network or the Internet to see if the remote computer was responding. That same program is now used as a method of informing others that your blog exists and also let’s them know when a new post has been made. When you put the two together – blogging and pinging – you get a technique that is extremely effective at getting ANY web site, no matter how big or small, indexed by the major search engines.
