Tom's Website of the Week: Pingomatic.com

Tom Robinson - 6 Music | 11:02 UK time, Monday, 22 February 2010

Sometimes simple is best, while simple and free is the best of all.


As more and more musicians come to realise the ideal band website is in fact a blog, the importance of ping becomes ever greater. Not (in this case) the kind of ping used for testing network connection speeds, but the sort that lets everyone know your blog has been updated.

Pingomatic.com is a single simple web page that allows you to ping 23 major aggregators (from Feedburner and Technorati to the likes of Icerocket and WeBlogaLot) in seconds. It's provided by the Wordpress foundation, works with blogs on every possible platform and - yes - it is completely free to use.

Bloggers! Bookmark the page and use it every time you publish a new post: Pingomatic.com is my latest Website of the Week.
