Self-Pinging a Blog Good or Bad-No Self Ping Plugin

Do you ping your own blog?

If yes, then do stop it. I have seen many bloggers, even some professionals, pinging their own blog. Some think that in this way, they do get a linkback to their posts. The link to your post might appear in your related or recent posts. Or, you can deliberately too induce a link in your post. But, this-way linking in your comments section should be avoided.

Moreover, self-pinging is not good as part of SEO. So why not avoid it. In wordpress blog, you can stop self pinging your own blog easily with the help of a plugin called ‘No Self Ping’.

    Also what about the old self pings that i have already have in comments. do i need to remove it?

  3. what about if we remove those Trackbacks or Pingbacks while moderation ???
    Only pinging wud be helpful for posts ?

  4. @Nihar: Good atleast now you know this plugin.
    Its better if you remove it.
    @TechBuzz: You can do that but I think the plugin saves you from a lot of overhead. And what if you forget to delete those?
