One ping (service) to rule them all: Ping-O-Matic

In: Blogging

24 May 2004

Ping-o-Matic is now not only a HTML form-based service that you can use to notify multiple sites of your new weblog entry. This weblog entry let us in on the new ping URL http://rpc.pingomatic.com/ that you can use to replace the long list of URLs you’re currently pinging everytime you make a new weblog entry.

This means no more waiting for your weblog software (be it Movable Type, WordPress, or something else) as it pings multiple services.

Yup it is an awesome service. I found out about it when I installed WordPress 1.2 (which is awesome as well, but moving from Movable Type is a chore).

Great tip! Do you know exactly which sites the RPC link pings? I know that it pings a “subset” of the Ping-O-Matic sites, but I haven’t found any further info on that topic.

Ping-o-Matic!
Just found a service that allows you to ping multiple sites with your new blog entry with just a click. I had previously not been pinging anything (that I know of) but I may start now.
