Trackback ping service: What is it? Does it function? Am I crazy?

6 posts in this topic

IP.Blog should have this function to inform trackback pink services about newly made blog entries. For example will it inform google blog search about your entries. So, when I search for them, they should be found, shouldn't they? I have my blog supposedly ping all the services, but you know what - on their sides my entries are not found. So what is this? Does that really function? Is it a joke...? :hmm:

Please don't remove this in the support forum, because I want to hear what others think about this function. And because I'm generally confused with it, which is clearly a feedback of some kind... :D

Pinging a provider does NOT automatically list your content by that provider. If it were that easy, everyone could ping Google Blog Search when posting anything on the internet to have it listed there.

When you ping a provider, it sends them a small "note" that there is new content to look at. It is then up to the provider what to do about it, if anything.
