WordPress Turns On PuSH Support With Plugin [en.blog.wordpress.com]
Today we’ve turned on PuSH support for the more than 10.5 million blogs on WordPress.com. There’s nothing to configure, it’s working right now behind the scenes to help others keep up to date with your posts.

PuSH is a way for services that subscribe to updates from your blog (think Google Reader, Bloglines or Netvibes) to get updates even faster. In a nutshell, instead of having to periodically ask your blog if there are any updates they can now register to automatically receive updates each time you publish new content. In most cases these updates are sent out with in a second or two of when you hit the publish button.

Google Reader, Bloglines or Netvibes


No one I know uses these services. This is why I recommend to clients to use email driven newsletters instead of blogs.

Isn't Google Reader and others just an RSS feed reader? I use RSS feeds straight to my iG page, and I know a bunch of other people that use other RSS readers.

PubSubHubbub is a great way to get your RSS and Atom feeds syndicated, fast. It avoids the old ping model where your software would have to go out and tell an aggregator that a feed was updated.

RSS is becoming a real background process that you may be consuming without knowing it. It's not all just RSS feeds and feed readers anymore.

The only notifications you need are those sent directly to search engines. Since search engines also keep a close eye on services like Twitter it helps to send the content to them as well (feedburner has an auto twitter snippet posting service for wordpress).

I like to use the other services as intended, like Google reader, by letting them know I exist and letting them visit when they see fit. If every blog out there pings everything it possibly can a huge amount of noise is created that gets ignored because search crawlers are already working their own schedules.

Isn't there a danger that scrapers subscribing through the push feature will get the content on my blog published and indexed before I manage to get it index? And is that a problem?
