Seesmic Ping Update – Post to WordPress

We’re excited to share another update to Seesmic Ping – the addition of WordPress as a posting service. A feature that’s available to Seesmic users under the Plus and Pro plan, users can now add WordPress and post updates to your WordPress blog(s) along with Twitter, Facebook (and Facebook Pages), LinkedIn and Tumblr (including sub-blogs).


To add your WordPress blog(s), simply go to the Accounts tab, and under your list of accounts, click on the WordPress button under “Add Accounts.” SeesmicPingAccountAddWordPress

You’ll be brought to a login screen to fill out your blog url, username and password. Once complete, you will see your WordPress blog as a selection to post to!

WordPress Comments also in Feedback Response Metrics
Along with posting to WordPress, you can also view how many comments you receive in our newest analytics feature: Feedback Response Metrics, which we recently released in beta a couple of weeks ago.  Under the History tab, for each message you post, you get a analytic summary of responses from Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Tumblr and now WordPress. The number in comments section will also link back to the original post (we’ll look to integrate viewing actual comments in an upcoming release).


We’re pretty excited about the latest release and even more excited about the next features coming up soon.

If you have any questions, please feel free to bring them up to our help site at

Introducing – Seesmic Ping Response Metrics (Beta)

Introducing – Seesmic Ping Response Metrics Beta

We’re very happy to share with you a beta version of the Seesmic Ping Response Metrics feature for messages that you post to your social networks.

With this feature, you can find out in one place how many likes, comments, shares, retweets, and reblogs you get from Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn – and for paid users, Facebook Pages and Tumblr.

We’re looking forward to your feedback on both the design and the general functions, as we build this out. This feature is available to free users for the last 3 messages and for the last 25 messages for paid users.

Here are details for this first version.

When sending a message from Seesmic Ping,  you are provided summary of results for each message in the “History” section of Seesmic Ping, currently labeled “Feedback“.


The summary is separate by three categories:

  • Likes
  • Comments
  • Shares (including Retweets & Reblogs)
Each category will show the total number of each type of response from all accounts you sent your message from.

Click on the “Show Details” link to expand on the summary and show all the feedback responses from each of the account.

FeedbackmetricsDetailsSo far, we’ve summarized your

  • Facebook: Likes, Comments, Shares (we’re not able to share responses from messages with images, working with FB on this)
  • Twitter: Retweets
  • LinkedIn: Likes, Comments, Shares
  • Tumblr: Likes, Replies, Reblogs

Each icon that’s has an available response will link to the original post on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Tumblr.

For this version, the data is currently refreshed every 30 minutes (for LinkedIn, it will be every 3 hours for the time being). In the next iteration we’d like to have a notification if you get new or updated information.

Eventually, we’d like to expand on this so you can 1) view the actual responses (who liked your message, read text from comments) and 2) respond directly to all your responses within this section.

Tumblr updates – posting to sub-blogs:
For our paid users , we’ve also improved our implementation with our Tumblr service. You can now post to sub-blogs associated under the main Tumblr account. I works similar to Facebook Pages. Simply choose your Tumblr account and click on “Select Blogs” to get a list of blogs to choose.

We’re excited to have this and our feedback response metrics out to users and looking forward to hearing feedback.
For our paid users, we’ve set up a special help/feedback site – Seesmic VIPs: you’re a paid user and not able to access this, let us know in the help desk) 

Feel free to contact us though the helpdesk or @seesmictips if you need any help or assistance.
