Pings is when two internet connections communicate with each other. Yes, we could go deeper but for now that is enough for now.
Some blogging publishing software have the pinging part of the function of the software. That means every time you post some networks are notified. On Typepad you can opt to ping two popular search engines. Blo.gs and weblogs.
Ping-o-matic is a way to ping a bunch of services all at one time. WordPress.org software uses have this automatically, if they want. Ok so someone out there is saying ‘I don’t believe you.” So I went directly to the WordPress documentation and it is stated below.
WordPress makes this easy for you by listing Ping-O-Matic’s server (rpc.pingomatic.com) by default. All you need to do is sit back and let it work for you!
If you do not want the update services to be pinged, remove all the update service URIs listed under “Update Services” on the Options->Writing admininstration screen of your WordPress installation.
Now I really want some of the more experienced bloggers out there to share warnings, tips and other advice that is needed. Thanks
