Ping for dummies (me) (7 posts)

    Hi,

    Can anyone enlighten me on pings.

    I am using the standard default pingomatic on my WP blog. But from what I can tell the only place that is seeing my pings is Technorati. I thought pingomatic automatically pinged the other sites that is listed on the pingomatic site.

    What else should I do to let people know about my site and my posts?

    Thanks

    But pingbacks do not explain why my posts are not getting picked up by the other services listed on pingomatic.

    But thanks for the reply

    Thanks samboll.

    I've already been to the pingomatic site and it lists several other blog services on it. I could enter my blog details manually and then select the services I want to ping, but I was assuming that the default pingomatic option in WP would do all of this for me. It must be doing something as my posts are getting to Technorati.

    Can you provide any more info rather than just links?

    If you have not guessed by now, I'm new to all this...

    OK Thanks. I guess I'll wait to see if any of them pick my blog up.

    One last question.

    Is there any way that wordpress.com can pick up updates from a wordpress.org blog.

    I was originally on WP.com and moved to a hosted sever and use WP

    thanks for all you replies
