In this specific video you’re going to learn how to use privacy in the update services options to let search engines know when you release brand new content.
So there are two different sections, but I wanted to cover these two sections in this particular video.
Now after you’ve watched all these videos and you set up your website, you’ve added some content.
What I would normally do is to notify search engines “hey, I’m done setting up my site and come and index my site”.
So if you go to “Settings” and then go to “Privacy” you’ll notice “Site Visibility”
It says “Allow search engines to index this site”.
Normally when I install a blog, I leave it like this, “ask search engines not to index this site” because until you have content on your site, most likely you don’t want Google to come to your site.
If you want Google to come to your site, what I would normally do is upload several pieces of content first, before notifying search engines to index the site.
Now when you’re ready click on this, and click on “Save Changes” but if you’re not make sure you have the second option chosen.
So that’s privacy settings, the second thing is update services.
Now update services is if you go to “Settings” and click on “Writing” and you scroll all the way down to the bottom, this is what we call update services.
Update services is basically every time you publish a post, let’s say you publish an article, and you insert it into you post; every time you do that WordPress will notify through pinging – notify the search engines and other sites and services that hey, you got brand new content, come visit my site, come index my brand new content.
And that’s what we call pinging.
So right now you have one site called ping-o-matic, which is just great, however, if you want to enter other ping sites, you can do that.
And if you click on update services here, and you scroll down, you can get a list of ping services.
So what you can do is you can highlight this, copy this, and copy it over here, paste it, and click on “Save Changes”.
Now you can also go out on Google and find other lists of ping services, however, it doesn’t really mean that the more services you have, the better it is.

And with that, it’ll definitely double the power of getting your brand new content out on the search engines every time you create a new post, and it’s that easy!

Some people really like some of them, many people hate them, some (mostly from Oregon) even believe them all to be true … but the comments are often very funny too – and well worth reading! 11 million viewers and over 12 thousand subscribers can’t be wrong. Can they?
