WordPress is user-friendly and has many built-in SEO features and SEO boosts you can install as plugins or upgrade. One WordPress plugin we highly recommend is the Google XML Sitemap, which notifies the major search engines whenever you update your site with fresh content.  WordPress also has a default XML-RPC ping feature that automatically notifies popular update services, whenever you update or publish a new post on your site.

WordPress XML-RPC Udate Services

WordPress Update Services process the ping then update their proprietary indexes with your update.  People that are browsing sites like Technorati or Sphere are then able to find your latest or updated posts.  With WordPress XML-RPC Update Services, your posts will reach more people at a much faster rate than the traditional route of search engine spiders crawling and indexing your updated content

The option to alert Ping-O-Matic can be found in the Settings/Writing/Update Services section in the WordPress admin panel, which defaults to http://rpc.pingomatic.com. 

Make sure that your web hosting allows the PHP functions used to alert Update Services.  If your web hosting disables pings, try using FeedBurner’s PingShot service. PingShot maintains a constantly evolving list of content update services that it pings whenever content updates on your site are detected. You must enable the PingShot service in your FeedBurner account.  

XML-RPC Update Services Boost and Google XML Site Map 

GET FOUND NOW has our own constantly growing and evolving list of content update services that notify their indexes across the globe.  Once we install the Google XML sitemap and our own proprietary list of XML-RPC ping services, your blog will become a SEO powerhouse and take off like a rocket in the SERPs.

When GET FOUND NOW publishes an article, we get anywhere from 1200 – 2800 spiders crawling our site.  Without a Google XML Sitemap or a boost to your WordPress Update Services, you won’t get anything close to that kind of activity.

Don’t rely on the “spider crawling and indexing old fashion way.”  Give your WordPress XML-RPC Update Services a boost with additional ping services and install a Google XML site map.
