Pingr - Tell search engines about your sitemap changes
Pingr is a super-simple gem built for the blogit project.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install pingr
From within your app (most likely a controller):
def ping_sitemaps Pingr::Request.new(my_sitemap_url) # This will ping Google and Bing end
A good way to do this would be using Rails's after filters:
class PostsController < ActionController::Base after_filter :ping_sitemaps, only: [:create, :update, :destroy] # ... private def ping_sitemaps Pingr::Request.new(my_sitemap_url) end end
You can view the supported search engines and add your own by viewing the code in this directory:
By default, Pingr is set to :test mode, meaning it won't actually perform the requests. If the Rails environment is :production then the mode is set to :live which will perform requests to the search engines.
You can change this by manually setting
# in config/initializers/pingr.rb Pingr.mode = :live if Rails.env =~ /staging|production/
NOTE: Search engines may penalise or black-list you if you perform too many requests - they recommend no more than one per hour.
