What Does It Mean To Ping?

If you want your blog to gain more traffic, try pinging it. "A 'Ping' is a basic Internet program that lets you verify that a particular Internet address exists and can accept requests."

At Pingoat, each time your blog is updated, you can notify the various services that keep track of them. It's a great way to get your published work more visible to readers.  I know. I know. So what am I waiting for?
