Blog Update Notification... Pinging --

Because of problems with Blogger earlier, I manually installed my last post, on my server. How did I do this? I published the post to the blogspot server, then collected the files I needed, performed some minor editing and FTP'd to my server with an external program.

When I publish a new blog entry, I notice a little more traffic than usual on my server. I believe this is because Blogger notifies with a ping. Because earlier, I did not publish in the normal manner, I had to manually notify tracking sites about the updates to my blog. This is known as pinging. This should not be confused with pinging a url to check for trouble. Here are some sites that track blog updates:
