    This is a noob question, but I remember I read an article somewhere. I forget where. But it said to turn off the pinging from your wp blog so it wont slow it down. Is this true that if you ping sites with each post (In the "Writing" section of WP "Settings", scroll down to see a box with the url:http://rpc.pingomatic.com/) this will slow the load time of the site or slow it down some how?

    Any help would be appreciated. Until then I have posted a list of 65 sites that I ping. This should help.....I think...

    I don't believe it will slow down the load time of your pages. I did a little googling and a few sites that posted ping lists say that if your ping list is excessively long (more than 90 ping sites) then it may take longer for your article to post on your blog. But it will not affect the load times of your web pages.

    Oh, it was for csvpig, I didnt check the box and had all the posts be backdated posts so it pinged all the rss, google and twitter. Twitter suspended the account. It would have been about 3000 pings within 10 min. So I dont blame them :naughty:. Next time I WILL read the manual carefully. It may sandbox my site to Google. If it does I will post it here.

    I don't experience any slow downs at all. I am using that same list on several blogs.
