Blogs and websites are visited by crawlers from the search engines on a regular basis. They will eventually get to you, but it takes time.
A quicker way is to use our Pinger to let search engines know that there are changes to your website. The search engine then immediately sends its crawlers out to check your URL. You then have a better chance of getting ranked on the first page of the search engines. This will ultimately depend on your keywords and phrases but a quick ping gets you to the front of the queue and a good chance to get ranked high. This is especially important if there is a correction or update on your website; a price change or a correction, for example.
Every page you publish should be pinged. If you keep pinging the search engines, they may stop crawling your URL, so you need to be sensible and balanced. It can feel like you're spamming them if you overload them with pings from your URL. Once per week per URL is fine. Make sure you submit every page of your site.
