Pingates is Gone

    For those of you that like to ping your hubs, Pingates is no longer available. I used Pingates a few weeks back when I saw it mentioned in a hub. When I went back today it says the site's account has been suspended.

    Pinging is something I've seldom done. I am interested in opinions on pinging.

    I rarely do it, you can use pingler.com or ping.fm for a replacement service though.

    I just go to the Google ping page and use that for my blogs. Nothing else.

        I believe it's http://blogsearch.google.com/ping

        Going to give it a try! Pinging on multiple sites is tedious and some sites are sooooo slow.

          does it have to be a blogger blog or can we post our hub profile there?

    I use Pingates for all my hubs and was sad to hear it might be gone.

    I just checked, and it seems to be back, but with far fewer sites available to be pinged.

    As for how useful it may be, I do very little backlinking, and Pingates is one of the 3-4 sites I always use. And I seem to be doing pretty well with HubPages so far, so it *might* be useful. It certainly hasn't seemed to hurt anything...
