Technorati Pinging

"Ping" is a utility used in a TCP/IP environment to determine if a given IP Address exists or is reachable. Typically, Ping is used to diagnose a network connection problem. Many times you will be asked, "Can you ping that address?". That means, does the Ping utility return a success message trying to reach the "problem" IP Address?

To use a ping service or to "ping" means to let others know that your site has been updated. Within the WordPress interface, "ping" is sometimes used to refer to Pingbacks and Trackbacks.

Here is an example.

You can manually Ping by entering your web address.

Some popular web hosts make pinging automatic with posting. That is, when you post a ping notification is sent to someone who may be interested, such as technorati. This helps to promote traffic to your site.

You can set your blog software up to ping Technorati automatically by entering into your blog's configuration.
