    So penguin deeply in trenched in all our minds, and post it i have lost a lot of webpages that were previously doing well in the serps.
    I was wondering if any one thinks that pinging will do any sort of damage or have any benefit to a website, i dont really ping the money site directly usually i ping deep into my link wheels...

    Thanks

    5minute bump? lol
    Anyways, what someone tells you really wont matter. There needs to be a case study with a few sites to see if it would impact in a bad way with current updates. I'm not a expert in pinging but i personally don't think that they would do that as of right now. Later on i guess they could change the algo to only accept pinging from recognized sites. Other then that don't really know what to tell you. Also remember, pinging isn't for bookmarks, it's for google to crawl the statistics site and see new website updates that they are providing. Once it see's your site, google will then go and try to crawl your site thus you being indexed. But it shouldn't count for actual SERP bookmark stats.

    So when you say its not for bookmarking, do you suppose that bookmarking sites already have spiders so there is no need to alert them to new content? My strategy is to create 2.0's and then bookmark them, then i ping my bookmarks. Are you saying i am wasting my time pinging my bookmarks?

    no where near as important as it once was, but still worth doing.
