    Here is a question I am having a difficult time finding an answer to... So I am bringing to some of the brightest minds in the IM industry...

    Here is the back story... I use the
    Code:
    MaxBlogPress Ping Optimizer Plugin
    on all of my autoblogs, with a list of over 60 ping services.

    Here is my question: Is there any way to determine the actual date and time that my blog pings each one of the ping service sites?

    and my second question is this... are pings sent every time a comment is posted on a blog (if auto approved) or only after approval if not auto approved?

    because if blogs are pinged every time a comment is added I am going to open up the comments and let the spammers run amuck on a couple of my blogs to see if it gives some SEO love to keywords....

    Just curious...
    Seriously

    I don't think it will have any considerable impact.
    Maybe it will, try it and share the results...

    You can only see where the ping started in the log screen of the plugin (the name changed to cbnet Ping Optimizer).

    The ping is only started when you create a new post, it should ping if you edit the post past the protection time, but the plugin only ping when you first create the post.

    So are you saying pings are NOT created on comments? only on posts?

    Seriously

    Yep.

    I have this plugin installed and it never ping on anything except on post or page creation. Also i'm looking at the source code and the plugin doesn't attach to comments filters .

    One thing I did find with the MBP Plugin, is it produces HUGE tables in your database if you have a site with lots of regular posts.
