Wow



This is an interesting moment… since last night I’ve been tinkering with wordpress. I’ve got it installed in a test directory. This afternoon I spent some time moving old posts over to wordpress from my old portal. I’ve got several plugins installed and I look at the stats plugin I setup earlier this afternoon. I only expected to see my visits there (and my Dad’s, and maybe my brothers, I’d sent them links), other than those, I didn’t expect any visits because, well it wasn’t linked from anywhere else on my site. Apparently the power of “ping” is greater than I thought as it seems I’ve got hits from a few sites and on looking, one of my posts is already in the IceRocket blog search

Yikes, I’m used to the concept of search engines taking a bit of time to discover a site that’s new on the web, but apparently there’s a feature off wordpress I’ve not paid close enough attention to. In the configuration there’s a line like this….

Update Services

When you publish a new post, WordPress automatically notifies the following site update services. For more about this, see Update Services on the Codex. Separate multiple service URIs with line breaks.

http://rpc.pingomatic.com/

pingomatic.com is setup by default. I remember seeing this setting and thinking that given I was not quite ready to promote this to the default site, I should disable it. But I didn’t, expecting a more glacial response. This gives that list of rpc servers I found earlier a much greater significance. I was having a hard time at one point seeing how just one article could generate a flood of traffic, but after seeing a _very_ small example, I’m impressed with the concept. This is going to be an interesting experiment with blogging software. I hope to promote wordpress to be the main layout of averyjparker.com within the week.
