Ping is the time it takes a packet to get to a place and back. Think of it this way: you have to run back to your friends house and back as fast as you can. Your ping is the time it takes you from the time you leave to when you get back. On the internet, ping is the time it takes a packet of data to get from your computer to somewhere and back.

To lower your ping, start with decreasing network traffic. If you are downloading, stop. Next, make sure you pick a server that's nearby. There's no reason you should have to run extra distance. If all else fails... maybe you need faster internet. What's your current ping BTW? Anything under 100 is good for online gaming in my opinion.
