  2. Great post Bharat.
    I didn’t knew whether a Tumblr blog will help in indexing a blog post quickly. Will try it for sure :)

    1. Hi Arabaz, I’m happy you like these tips. Apart from Social Media, a simple Tumblr blog also helps in indexing blog posts quickly. You can use “Custom Domain” option in Tumblr to redirect your Tumblr blog to a WordPress blog, but before that you need to set-up A Name and C Name records for your domain.

      1. Hi, Bharath Nice Article,But a small doubt That is How to Redirect from tumblr blog to word press blog or blogspot blog

        Reply
  3. The other 3 tips were same old which we’ve already read from hundreds of other blogs, but using the Tumblr blog and using the Puchpress WP plugins in something new for me.

    I can’t use Tumblr blog as it takes a lot of time to set everything perfectly, but will check the Pushpress plugin.

    BTW I think sharing the post to all the social networking websites can also let the search engines know about the latest post of our blog. Thanks for the tips and Congratulations on your 2nd guest post here at LearnBlogTips Bharat.
    Keep up the good work bro.

  17. Nice list, but some points like adding a ping list are a bit outdated now. Since all the updates with Google in the last 6 months, having massive ping lists installed in your WordPress blog is not really good for SEO now as it can be seen as over optimising.

    I would recommend you submit your RSS feed to RSS directories and use ping sites like pingfarm or pingoat or pingomatic every now and then rather than over pinging using a massive list. You should also use a ping optimizer plugin to limit the amount of self pings as this can harm your rankings with all the new changes happening at Google.

    1. Hello Suraj

      Welcome to LearnBlogTips. It’s great to see your comment here. I’m surprised to know that ping list is not good for SEO.

      I’ll surely check out ping optimizer plugin soon. Thanks for adding more value to the post. I’ll consider updating the post with your suggestions soon :)

      1. Hi Rahul

        The thing about pinging is that now you have to be a bit more careful about not over-pinging out of your blog/website. The ping optimizer plugin will stop self-pings and excessive pinging for example when you just update a page/post that has already been published you don’t want that update to be pinged because it can be seen as ‘excessive’.

        Plus, a lot of the ping sites have been Google slapped so you don’t really want your links from there.

  18. Hello Bharat, Really Great article bro. But Pinging an article by different services is ok or will it effect our blog. I never used Ping to any of my post. So bharat please help me regarding this ping services that how to use. Anyway thanks for sharing this great tips bro :)

    Reply
    1. Sai, you can ping but just be sure not to do it too much. I personally would recommend using a service like pingoat, pingomatic or pingfarm rather than uploading a large ping list to your blog.

      I would also recommend using RSS syndication more as opposed to pinging now, especially because of recent changes to Google’s algorithm which will penalise ‘over optimization’ of websites.

Hi, I have started a new blog since 1 month (URL : http://www.wordpressthemedesk.com) , the problem i am facing is that when i release a new post it takes more than 24 hours which was not taking that much time at beginning. Even if it index then it come up with homepage URL in google search result when i search for specific word of that new post.
