Super Simple Blog Ping Trick for WordPress
After the keyword research and competitive analysis, you just spent 3 hours writing a great blog for your website – with a 10-minute snack break and a two 5-minute potty breaks, of course.

As one of the best blog posts you’ve ever written, this could potentially bring in a lot of traffic and a lot of money.

We have a little trick that you can do to alert all the search engines and sites that your blog is ready to be crawled. Here’s how you do it:
Log into your WordPress admin, go to Settings, then Writing, then paste the following list in the Update Services box. That’s all there is to it!
And that’s it. Rest and get ready for your next blog!
