Update for late 2012:
Several ping services have disabled (or moved) their ping url’s in 2007-2012 Earlier note in regards pingomatic: Pingomatic has been growing, and they now ping more sites. From reading their blog, it looks like they keep up well with technical changes required by the sites they ping. Additionally, some services that have disabled their ping url’s now only seem to accept pings coming from pingomatic directly. I deemed it therefore better from now on to use pingomatic with an additional list of ping services not supported by pingomatic.Here’s the updated list (just copy and paste this list into Options > Writing > Update Services) - this is the only list you need to use:

http://rpc.pingomatic.com
http://blogsearch.google.com/ping/RPC2
http://ping.myblog.jp

Disclaimer: This list is provided “As Is” with no warranties nor guarantees and you should do your own proper research before using it. I am not affiliated with pingomatic nor with any other ping service.

If you want to find out how this list was created, read the article below. The shortlist may need “adding to” again (it has been reduced/cleaned over time, but not been added to), so if you have any services that are not pinged by Pingomatic and are not on the list above, please let me know.

When I noticed all the ping lists available for Wordpress I decided to make a clean list from all the sources, available at:

http://www.warriorforum.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=57413
http://elliottback.com/wp/archives/2004/11/21/a-list-of-rpc-and-rpc2-to-ping/

Here is the result (just copy and paste this list into Options > Writing > Update Services):

http://rpc.pingomatic.com
http://ping.weblogs.se/
http://blogmatcher.com/u.php
http://coreblog.org/ping/
http://www.blogpeople.net/servlet/weblogUpdates
http://bulkfeeds.net/rpc
http://trackback.bakeinu.jp/bakeping.php
http://ping.myblog.jp
http://ping.bitacoras.com
http://ping.bloggers.jp/rpc/
http://ping.blogmura.jp/rpc/
http://xmlrpc.blogg.de
http://1470.net/api/ping
http://bblog.com/ping.php
http://blog.goo.ne.jp/XMLRPC

If you wanted to ping all services manually (ie. not via pingomatic) you could use the following list:
I prefer this list
as it does not rely on pingomatic but rather on WordPress to handle all pings.

http://api.feedster.com/ping
http://api.moreover.com/RPC2
http://api.my.yahoo.com/RPC2
http://xping.pubsub.com/ping/
http://ping.blo.gs/
http://ping.feedburner.com
http://ping.syndic8.com/xmlrpc.php
http://ping.weblogalot.com/rpc.php
http://rpc.blogrolling.com/pinger/
http://rpc.icerocket.com:10080/
http://rpc.newsgator.com/
http://rpc.technorati.com/rpc/ping
http://rpc.weblogs.com/RPC2
http://topicexchange.com/RPC2

Disclaimer: This list is provided “As Is” with no warranties nor guarantees and you should do your own proper research before using it. I am not affiliated with pingomatic nor with any other ping service.

(Also remember that some ping services need a manual ping first before they accept automated pings. See http://www.masternewmedia.org/news/2004/11/10/increase_visibility_in_blog_and.htm for that)

Here is how I got to this list:

1) It is important to note that the 2 above mentioned original lists (i.e. the 2 url’s, not the resulting lists in boxes) do not exclude the possibility that the pingomatic and pingoat services mark you as spammers because you are pinging some services up to 3 times if you are using these lists as-is

You may for instance ping weblogs.com through pingomatic, pingoat and another time manually since it is included in the list as well.

Because of the this the following services were removed from the 2 original list’s (accessible via the url’s above):

http://api.feedster.com/ping
http://api.moreover.com/RPC2
http://api.my.yahoo.com/RPC2
http://xping.pubsub.com/ping/
http://www.mod-pubsub.org/ping.php
http://mod-pubsub.org/kn_apps/blogchatt
http://ping.blo.gs/
http://ping.feedburner.com
http://ping.syndic8.com/xmlrpc.php
http://ping.weblogalot.com/rpc.php
http://rpc.blogrolling.com/pinger/
http://rpc.icerocket.com:10080/
http://rpc.newsgator.com/
http://rpc.technorati.com/rpc/ping
http://rpc.weblogs.com/RPC2
http://topicexchange.com/RPC2
http://www.blogdigger.com/RPC2
http://www.blogstreet.com/xrbin/xmlrpc.cgi
http://www.newsisfree.com/RPCCloud
http://www.a2b.cc/setloc/bp.a2b
http://www.blogshares.com/rpc.php

As they are included in pingomatic.com already (obviously pingomatic itself was left in the list)

2) pingoat was removed, but all the services pingoat pings were left in the list so that pingomatic PLUS all the extra ping services listed on pingoat are pinged with the new list. These services are:

http://ping.weblogs.se/
http://blogmatcher.com/u.php
http://coreblog.org/ping/
http://www.blogpeople.net/servlet/weblogUpdates
http://bulkfeeds.net/rpc

3) All sites were checked for a bit decent Alexa ranking and for non-errors, this excludes the following sites from the list:

http://ping.rootblog.com/rpc.php alexa small
http://rcs.datashed.net/RPC2 alexa small
http://rpc.blogbuzzmachine.com/RPC2 alexa small
http://blogbot.dk/io/xml-rpc.php alexa small
http://www.blogoole.com/ping/ 403 error
http://www.snipsnap.org/RPC2 403 error
http://www.weblogues.com/RPC 403 error
http://www.lasermemory.com/lsrpc/ 403 error
http://www.blogroots.com/tb_populi.blog?id=1 404 error
http://ping.exblog.jp/xmlrpc 404 error
http://www.bitacoles.net/ping.php 404 error
http://thingamablog.sourceforge.net/ping.php not to be used
http://www.blogsnow.com/ping no pings please message
http://www.blogoon.net/ping/ cannot read
http://www.popdex.com/addsite.php not a RPC feed
http://ping.amagle.com/ SQL error
http://bitacoras.net/ping/ faulty redirect

4) 2 more services were excluded for special reasons:

http://ping.cocolog-nifty.com/xmlrpc < OK, but 405 not allowed
http://blogdb.jp/xmlrpc < OK, but slow

5) All the other sites were visited to ensure they were working

6) 2 Lists were generated (see the 2 resulting lists in the boxes above); one with pingomatic, one without it but including all the services that pingomatic pings

    Very good work :) I will try on my blog the manual list. I think that I will increase my traffic. Thanks

    Hi, Is there any particular reason why you have omitted google blog search from the list? From the wordpress codex I can see http://blogsearch.google.com/ping/RPC2 in the list. And as far as I know pingomatic is not pinging google. Correct me if I am wrong.

    Do you have an updated clean ping list for 2010?

    I read that pinging on individual ping sites that are already under a pinging services such as pingomatic doesn’t work anymore as it has to go through them.

    It’s tough to find a clean list online considering these factors. Another thing to consider is the duplicate pinging if you happen to list multiple services that has the same ping site on them - might get you banned. So, any updated list id appreciate it..

    A really great list, thanks a lot.

  10. on 22 Apr 2010 at 7:18 pm UWS

    Thanks for the list…I always have problems with the ping list timing out or non-working pings.

    Do you have the same problem?

  11. on 27 Apr 2010 at 11:41 am etech

    Thanks for the very detailed explanation on the ping services. I have found that quite a number of ping services no longer work. My search for an updated ping list landed me on this website. I am grateful for the quality content you posted and will use these new services on my sites.

    Thanks much and keep on posting quality information to assist us in getting the most from our efforts.

  12. on 01 Jun 2010 at 4:45 pm Adam

    Thanks for the extensive list! How often do these have to be update?

  13. on 01 Jun 2010 at 11:25 pm Yaniv

    Hi,

    Please note that BlogsNow.com ping service is no longer in business.

    Kind regards,

    Thank You

    Thanks for this useful pings list. It’s very hard to find reliable source out their. thanks and good luck.

    Dear Mr or Ms Admin

    What a great post!!

    I thoroughly read through and applied all the instructions step by step including adding the pingers that I realized I should delete later because they are all included in pingomatic and can cause my blog to be banned, so obviously I removed them.

    Thank you very much, this is very comprehensive, I will post here later on again to let you know how this worked for my blog

    nice list I am updating my ping lists !!!

  18. on 29 Jul 2010 at 8:16 pm admin

    @Leonardo Endo

    Re: “updated, clean, ping list for 2010″: see above, updated mid 2010. Read the note re adding also.

    Re: “pinging individual ping sites doesn’t work anymore” - yes, I previously noted the same.

    Re: “duplicate pinging” - You may like to use the Ultimate Plugins Smart Update Pinger, it avoids this issue.

    @UWS

    Yes, some services that are no longer working were removed.

    @Adam

    About once a year.

    @BoganM

    Thanks, it was updated in the last update (mid 2010)
