  • I assume you are referring to the autoping that you can use in Wordpress that shares updates with google blog search?  I don't think there are any autoping features yet available for Live that integrate with Wordpress.   If you want to ping us as changes are made to your sitemap you can use the following service:

     

    http://webmaster.live.com/ping.aspx?siteMap=[Your sitemap web address]

    Thanks Jeremiah,

     

    Are there any guidelines on how often should one do this? We have a job site with about a hundred new jobs every hour (during the day)?

     

    Regards,

    Ivan

  • None right now.  I will think about this and ask around.  I don't get many questions for that volume of sitemap change currently.

    Jeremiah if we wanted to ping our promotional blog what is the correct format?  Are the brackets eliminated and should it be the full http?

     

    Can you give us the proper format with a dummy site please?

  • Hello,

    I tried this, using the URL
    http://webmaster.live.com/ping.aspx?siteMap=www.wikijob.co.uk/sitemap.xml

    It returned:
    Sorry, something went wrong. Please try again.

    It did not elaborate what went wrong. Also trying again didn't help.

    The sitemaps have worked like a dream for other engines so I suspect they are OK; any ideas what the problem is?

    Unfortuantely I can't seem to get more than a small handful of pages indexed in Live, and it is proving a bit frustrating- I don't understand why!

    Any tips would be much appreciated.

    Many thanks,
    Chris
