auto-submit and wordpress

Posted 14 July 2008 - 07:38 AM

My new site . tylerjameslee.com
had a post that got picked up by showtime's website (sho.com) in their blog buzz section :
http://www.sho.com/s...ion/blogbuzz.do

it says it is powered by del.icio.us

i never submitted to del.icio.us or anywhere for that matter. does wp auto-submit to some of these places that I am just missing?

or did one of my readers have to add it to del.icio.us and tag it too?

the tag 'californication' was definitely one of the tags i put into my seo widget.....

so yeah . how did i become famous

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Why not check to see if the URL is saved somewhere on del.icio.us? I'm pretty sure that that's how "powered by del.icio.us" things work - they just watch the "recent" list for certain keywords.

The short answer is yes. WordPress pings pingomatic by default and I believe one of the places pingomatic pings is del.icio.us.

OR

Someone added your entry to their del.icio.us bookmarks and it was picked up somehow.
