Has anyone heard of or use this site?
I'm just looking for others opinions before using.
Never heard of it. Pinging is only useful on sites which are not getting indexed regularly. Personally I check googles crawlrate of my sites before even bothering to go on any mass pinging campaign. In wordpress I set and forget a few extra pinging services with it's inbuilt ping function.
However since most of my sites have several hundred/thousand pages crawled a day by Google, I see pinging as a waste of time in most cases.
Despite that I still took the job to write the user guide for Pingler
Thanks! OKay, but doesn't pinging generate a few backlinks to? I mean their is an RSS feed submitter. is this not generating about 30 backlinks every time i ping?
I personally have a pretty decent automated RSS network set up which requires no pinging, but distributes my RSS feed across a variety of sites.
Once you have submitted an RSS feed to a website it is normally automatically refreshed at least once a day anyway, in most cases hourly.
Alright, thanks.. So pinging is useless for backlinks? Cause after finding how to ping I deleted all my social Bokmarking sites lol. I thought pinging was the next best thing.
My strategy for promoting was to simply..
-my personal blog
Is this not very smart?

A ping is simply a notification telling a site that you have updated your own website. So if you ping Technorati it will display your latest post. However most ping services go to things like Google or Google blog search, so when you ping your blog it is merely telling a search engine to recrawl.

I read on someone hub that it helps to ping your hubs. What exactly is pinging and why should I do it? Thanks.

Wordpress submits each post to ping services like pingomatic. Should we be submitting our Hubs to these services or submit a ping each time we post a new Hub?
