Can pinging a site do damage if you haven't actually updated content?

    I've seen some hubs recommending that you ping your sites every few days.  They claim that this will increase traffic.  I thought that you were only supposed to ping when you actually changed or updated the blog.  I also saw an advertisement from a company that claims they will ping all of your sites each week.  Can pinging a site that hasn't been updated actually do damage to you ranking?  Should you regularly ping?  How often should you ping?
