Ping Your Wizzley

I know most of us know about this, but it's something I often forget to do.

If you find that your Wizzley is not indexed (or not getting indexed quickly enough), you can always use one of the ping services to help it along. One that I use is Pingoat, but there are many others available.

I often use this for Squidoo lenses too once I have made a major update to a lens.

Hope this is useful.

Thank you! I always ping my lenses. I will try to establish the habit of pinging my wizzes.

The one I like best is  Pingler which pings something like 89 different services

Just pinged my 5 Wizzleys; thank you for the reminder. Smile

I'm also going to submit them to 3 feed aggregators. I hope that's not redundant.

I hadn't heard of Pingoat. Thanks for the tip.

I have used these ping services on my blogs, but mainly because it's "the thing to do". Can anyone confirm that his actually still makes a difference today? Just curious.

To me, "ping your wizzley" sounds like something you hear when you try to "write" your name in the snow and then hit an icy spot.

But maybe that's just me.

Nightowl: I think it does help you get indexed by Google faster. All 5 of my Wizzleys are now indexed (and one of them is less than 24 hours old), and all I did was ping them and submit them to 3 RSS directories.

The thing is, the search engines indexed many or our pages within hours, without pinging. They are so fast nowadays that I wonder if it's even necessary to ping. Might be an interesting topic for a "scientific" experiment.

The speed of indexing is comming from the new concept of Google Caffeine algorithm, but this doesn't mean that we don't have to use all methods we know to help indexing.

Personaly I Ping, and use keyords.

What I am not doing yet is to write a personal name for "comments". title. But I'll correct this.

Got to agree with you. Still trying to separate wizzing from Wizzley. Maybe if I think of it more as being Wizzardly (magical) that would help. :)

Thank you! I always ping my lenses. I will try to establish the habit of pinging my wizzes.

So, what is the right term -- wizzes, wizzleys ... wizzles? I mean, if I'm posting a link on Twitter, let's say, do I say I created a new wizz? :)  And am I a wizzmaster? A wizzer? A wizzley?

Just trying to get the lingo down. Smile

To be honest I am keeping it very simple - that's me all over!

I create pages on Wizzley which is where I am an author

Sometimes I think we feel like we have to call them something different when just sticking with the original names of online activity makes us unique Laughing
