    Hey

    If i'm posting a new blog post every day, is it useful to ping each post, or is that too spammy?

    Wordpress automatically pings relevant servers everytime you post on your blog. People waste an incredible amount of time pinging..

    Pingler works fine and if you want to ping a lot of posts at one time use pingdevice.com

    I've read somewhere in a thread that pinging does not mean much anymore. Well, I've tested it a bit to the EXTREME! and must say, I TOTALLY disagree! :D

    Wordpress has some issues with pinging function. It will ping even when you edit existing post which will look spammy to ping services. and it will ping the home page not the exact post link..

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cbnet-ping-optimizer/ is a wordpress plugin that fixes this issue and need minimal configuration. (works fine out of the box though).
