After reading "what I should do after posting a blog" I submitted my blog URL in pingomatic.com.

Weblogs.com Ping sent.

Blo.gs Ping sent.

Feed Burner Ping sent.

My Yahoo! Ping sent.

Pingomatic is a service which alerts (pings) multiple RSS aggregators/search engines in one action when there is a new post on your blog. This saves you from having to register your blog to all of the services individually.

From the Ping-O-Matic main page:

What is this?

Ping-O-Matic is a service to update different search engines that your blog has updated.
