The utility of the Update Services which must be filled in with the Ping URL List is as a source that sends pings to various search engines about your latest post. In other words, whenever you publish a new post or modify an existing post, WordPress sends a ping to all Ping Networks registered in the Ping Update Service area of WordPress.
So Search Engines will be notified about new posts or modifications that you have made to your WordPress site, and they will quickly index your posts so that they appear in search results immediately, and of course this is great for SEO optimization of your WordPress website or blog.
A ping server will usually send notifications to several major services such as:
- Search Engines
