Ping Your Blog- BlogBuzzer Premium is a Great Tool For Every Blogger

>> Saturday, April 24, 2010

I have been blogging for almost 5 months now! Wow, that went by fast! I have been figuring out things as I go and one tool I stumbled upon was BlogBuzzer. I always have my ears and eyes open to see what is working for other people and and I read somewhere that a group of bloggers always pinged their important articles for maximum exposure. "Pinged?," I was off to learn more about whatever that was because it sounded good!

That is how I discovered BlogBuzzer. They ping for your blog for FREE. I loved the sound of that. I also loved their very non-cluttered, visually appealing website that is super easy to use. You type in your blog, and they ping it! That is it, you're done. But what is "pinging" anyway? "Ping" involves BlogBuzzer submitting your blog to multiple search sites and blog directories. Once a blog is pinged it is picked up by the appropriate blog directory or search site and is marked to be indexed.

Have you ever left a comment on a blog that has the "comment luv" application? If so, you have probably noticed that it adds a link to your last post. You may have also noticed that it is not actually your last post if you haven't pinged your blog. If you don't ping your blog, you just have to wait for the bots to come by and notice that you have made updates. If you have a time sensitive article, like a post about Earth Day, and search engines don't notice until weeks later, you've missed a lot of traffic you are not going to get back. Of course, that holds true for all of your post. That is why pinging is such a valuable service.

Getting excited aren't you? I love learning blog tips too but there is even more!! I just discovered BlogBuzzer Premium. It is even better! Premium membership allows unlimited pinging as well as submission to search engines and 24/7 monitoring and pinging of your blogs. I was so excited about BloggBuzzer premium because it automatically pings my blog meaning that it saves me having to remember to do it and it saves me time. That is appealing enough to me but then I learned that Premium membership includes even more! Along with the standard blog directory sites that are pinged by BlogBuzzer your blogs will also be submitted to other major directories including: Delicious, StumbleUpon , Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Bing, and
This whole service is available for just $9/year!

I am so glad that BlogBuzzer approached me and let me try their premium service. I will certainly be renewing it. I think BlogBuzzer Premium is a fabuous tool for every blogger to save time and increase visibility and traffic! Find the true traffic potential of your blog with BlogBuzzer Premium.

BlogBuzzer did provide me with Premium Membership in hope that I would share my opinions of it. I did not receive monetary compensation and the opinions expressed are my own.

You learn something new every day is a favorite quote of my Dad and it's true, some things being more useful than others! I had read about pinging but had not figured out what it really meant and now I know, so thanks for a well written easy to understand post today!!
