    Thanks for the Great List of Ping site . My blog posts are taking too long time to get index . Today when I was checking the ping list I found that only default ping site is available and other ping site has been lost , may be because of the updates . Hoping now my blog post will get index faster as before .

    Pinging often dont do any good, sometimes search engines block websites for some time if they ping very often.
