What is Ping?Ping is a system that notifies of and transmits site update information.
When you update your blog a notification called an Update Ping will be sent to a designated address.
The server that receives Update Pings is called a Ping Server and there are many small and large Ping Servers located both domestically and overseas.
These servers handle Update Pings from around the world and post them just like a news/information portal site.
You can send Pings for free, but first you must register for the service.
Users can expect an increase in visitors because your blog updates will be listed by transmitting Pings.
