    Hi guys

    I have a question about pinging.

    I have a Wordpress based site which I have added the huge pinging list that is available on this forum. I was wondering, does Wordpress ping to those sites after every single update / blog post / page update?

    Also, I like to submit using RSSSubmit and RSSBot after each new blog post (2-3 a day) and was wondering if I am now pinging too much or does Wordpress suffice with the pings found in the HUGE PINGING LIST forum post which is on here?

    Thanks for any help guys, I'd hate to get banned from the G :)

    Yes, every time you press the Update button it pings.

    There's a free plugin that prevents this.

    Code:

    It needs registration.
    If you want you can use a throwaway email for it. They do send you mails but not that much.

    Got another question...is there such thing as pinging too many sites...

    lets say I have a ping list of 200 places to ping when I make a new post or build a new site....is this bad or will it hurt my efforts in any way?

    I doubt 200 is too big. If possible it would probably be better to let G find your site by back links from a couple of places then do your pinging after a week or so. Just a thought. Unless you are trying to launch news or something time sensitive.
