What is Pinging?


The practice of alerting a search engine of an update to a website, normally done automatically using a pinging service, with the aim of having a site indexed more frequently.

Technically, pinging is used to describe the attempt to confirm a connection between two computers. Ping is a network tool that sends packets to another IP address and waits for a reply. If there is no reply the connection is broken.
