What are Pings for?

    Another newbie question. What are Pings for? When do I want to allow them and when do I want to disallow them? Thanks.



    If you want to grow your readership, you ALWAYS want to allow pings. Pings notify search engines and blog ranking services like Google and Technorati that you’ve updated your blog, and they go look at it and index what you’ve added. If you want a private blog that only a few people know about, disallow pings.

    If you want to allow pings, WordPress has already set up the service through Pingomatic, so you don’t need to do anything else but chose to allow pings.



    Pings tell folks that you’ve updated your blog.
