By having your link building efforts indexed and attributed by Google you can accelerate the results achieved from your efforts. The problem to date (at least for me) has been how to achieve this. Sure you can link to your links from authority blogs but what if you have a hundred or so links to ping?
Thats where pingdevice.com comes into play

A Ping is basically a notification to the search engines and other broadcast media i.e. RSS sites etc that something has changed on a page. Built into wordpress is a Ping service that does this for you every time you add in some new content.
You can use a ping service like the Bulk Ping tool discussed above to not only repeat this process manually, but also ping other content i.e. new links created, articles published, old content updated etc.
