Why Is Blogging and Pinging The Newest Marketing Tool?

Most of you are now saying, “Yea, so?? I can get my site indexed now. What’s the big deal?” The big deal is that blogging and pinging gets your site indexed almost immediately AND it is FREE!!!

If you have any experience trying to get a site indexed and listed in the major search engines, then you know that it is frustrating and very difficult to get done in a reasonable amount of time. After working hard to get your site together, collecting and writing content, worrying about keywords and keyword densities, you are not even close to finished. Now comes the even harder part! Now you have to submit, by hand, your site to all the major search engines. And finally, you get to wait.

That’s right, you have to wait for the spiders to come index your site. This could take weeks or this could take months. There are some methods that will help bring along the spiders a bit faster, but these take lots of time and effort and money. And still, you can’t be sure that the spiders will come fast enough.

Blogging and pinging solves this problem. You can guarantee that spiders will come to your site and that you will get listed in all the major search engines with minimal effort and no money – in about 48 hours!!!

How does it work? The largest search engine, Google, owns Blogger.com. This is the site we will use to help you create your blogs. Google sends their search engine spiders through Blogger.com to find new content.

When you blog the content on your site – an extremely easy process described in Chapter 5 – the URL of the page you are blogging is automatically attached. That way, when Google’s spiders come along, they “see” the URL. If that URL isn’t listed in the Google database, the spiders “run right over” to the URL and check it out!

Imagine that the URL found on the blog is YOUR site! Rather than wait for weeks, months, or even up to a year, you can get YOUR site listed immediately! Google themselves will tell you that they would rather “discover” new URL’s by finding links than get them via submission. So, why not blog and ping and give them what they want!!

Another good piece of news is that once Google has your site, other search engines that use Google’s feed will put you on their site, too. And it all happens at lightening speed!

Another technique you will learn here is how to get Yahoo to send their news spiders your way. Just like Google, Yahoo is looking for fresh content. And once they pick up your site, so will others.

Finally, I will show you how to ping other services like Technorati and blo.gs. So why would you want to be on these sites? One word: traffic. Services like Technorati spider your links in real time. If you show up on someone’s Technorati link list for their site they’re likely to visit your site to see what you said, increasing your exposure.
