Ping my URL
The Ping mechanism notifies search engines when your blog or website has been updated and published through a push/highlight mechanism. You can perform this pinging manually or by your website provider, which we call crawling.
What about the Automatic Ping?
Automatic pings may take time, depending on the search engines associated with your domain service provider or domain. For example, your posts will be available to all Google search engines if you are a Google blogger and to Bing search engines if you are a WordPress blogger.
If your blog or website isn’t listed with unpartnered search engines, your posts may not be found, and you may not reach your target audience.
How can pinging a URL provide information?
When you ping a website, you can determine the strength, distance, and availability of a connection over the internet. In addition, you can use the Ping command to measure a connection’s speed.
How do I ping my URL to search engines?
You will probably understand how it works when you have used a web browser before.
- To ping a search engine, you send an HTTP GET request with your sitemap’s URL appended to it.
- Search engines receive the sitemap request and then send GET requests to the URL you provided.
- A search engine will scan your sitemap, and if it returns a 200 OK response, they will reconcile the URLs on the sitemap to the URLs they previously discovered.
- Sitemaps may be indexed by the search engine partly, fully, or not at all.
How does pinging Google work?
The packet is routed to the destination host, and the ping response is routed back. Finally, the network stack sends the ping response packet to the ping application, which calculates and displays the elapsed time.
