    Pinging = wasting time
    Backlinking = indexing and ranking

    I would strongly suggest you to read the SEO section :)
    Now that being said here is my 2 definitions to answer you questions :
    Backliking is one part of the Off site SEO , It means that we backlink our site to others sites . In Theory Google will rank the website that he has more backlink assuming that all the other parts are being taking care off . So it is like a presidential vote , who ever get more votes is being elected . With google , and in theory , who ever has more backlinks will rank higher .
    Now Pinging is basically a way to notify search engines that your blog or your links are being updated or being created .
    So after creating backlinks , you ping them to tell google and other search engines that you have more backlinks ( more votes ) so they can get indexed and you can rank higher .
    Hope It hleps
    Cheers

    I would suggest you (after reading some basic seo howtos) to focus on backlinking. Pinging has in these times only a minimal effect. If you don't have anything better to do (like linkbuilding itself), then you can ping and hopy on this really really tiny effect.
