    Sorry for the dumb question, but I have not done too much with blogging. So what I am wondering is how many posts do I need before I start pinging and promoting the blog. I feel like if I start pinging with only 1 or 2 posts, it would not look professional/serious. The last blog I set up, had 15 posts. Is there a magic number or does it really matter at all?

    If it is a wordpress blog then it can be set to ping automatically every time a new post is added. That's the way I use mine....mind you, I use Google Trends to write an article every day for a few days and then lose interest after a while so I don't earn jackshit, so what the hell do I know. :)

    Better listen to someone with some focus and patience. lol

    Cheers

    It doesn't matter. There are no negatives for pinging. Ping every 30 seconds if you want to.

    New content-ping.
    Whats the advanatge of pinging more than once for new content.
    None..the spiders know the page is there now and have seen the updated content.
    The possible disadvantage of over pinging is a possible ban for being a spam blog.
    I created a wordpress blog the other night, long tail keyword, same LT in the title, uploaded a photo with the same title and used the title in the short paragraph
    Bookmarked..
    About 8 hours later first page...why would I bother overpinging..?

    Ping after every new post. Post one time every day.

    When I designed white hat sites, with wordpress, I updated the same page many times a day (to correct errors) - as a consequence it was pinged many times. It got indexed very fast. On the other hand when I kinda "outsourced" that work, it took a lot of time to get indexed...maybe they pinged too many times and it was considered as a spam blog...but it got to the first rankings a few months latter.

    Try maxblogpress-ping-optimizer.

    As a previous posted suggested, you can set it up to automatically ping your choice of sites (you load the ones you want) every time you post NEW content and maxblogpress will NOT post if you make edits to your posts.

    Yeah, definitely ping every new blog post.

    With WP. just set it up automatically, and use the maxblogpress-ping-optimizer plugin to prevent pings when you update the post.

    Although, I did hear the latest version of WP took care of the over-pinging, but not sure about it yet.

    I am doing some "blackhat" blogs, and I would like to start pinging them to get them indexed, but all the blogs are registered on the same email address and each one is on the different user name.

    When pinging starts, I do not want any details about my IP address and email to be passed on. How should I do the blog pinging to acheive that?

    I always ping every post. If I'm building out a new blog and using something like Caffinated Content to load it up with a bit of content I'll turn off pinging for a bit.

    Sorry for persistence of noob's questions, but how can one verify that blog pinging worked, after using service like:
    pingomatic.com, pingler.com, autopinger.com etc.
