Welcome to The Blog Report

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you find this blog an interesting read. I've been blogging since April of 2006, currently the author of six public and two private blogs. In the beginning I knew absolutely nothing about blogging. Over the years through trial and error, frustration and elation, and a few tears I've learned a lot. However, the learning process when it comes to blogging continues to evolve. Here you will find a hodge podge of my blogging experiences, useful codes and how-tos, sprinkled liberally with my opinions. Enjoy!

Pinging Your Blog

After you make a new post to your blog it is customary to ping your blog. Sending a ping tell search engines and other directories that you've made a new post so essentially it is like sending out a beacon to say here I am. The bottom line question is does this help? Honestly I can't say one way or the other as to whether pinging will help other than it might get you noticed in the smaller search engines and directories. Now recently Technorati, one of the biggest blog directories announced they would not longer be accepting pings but rather let their spiders crawl blogs in their system. That means that you have to have your blog set to allow their spiders to crawl your blog and you have to be registered in their system.
