    WP plugin Ping Errors

    Hi,

    How do you test if a ping site is working?

    I have a plugin on wordpress that is saying this. It just started giving me these errors on my last few posts.

    10/03/10 23:14:58 http://api.moreover.com/RPC2 could not be pinged. Error message: “transport error - HTTP status code was not 200”
    10/03/10 23:15:03 ► [Extended Ping] http://ping.blo.gs/ was successfully pinged
    10/03/10 23:15:03 ► [Extended Ping] FeedBurner - Ping FeedBurner was successfully pinged
    10/03/10 23:15:03 ► [Extended Ping] http://ping.myblog.jp was successfully pinged
    10/03/10 23:15:03 ► [Extended Ping] http://ping.syndic8.com/xmlrpc.php was successfully pinged

    10/03/10 23:15:25 http://rpc.blogbuzzmachine.com/RPC2 could not be pinged. Error message: “transport error - could not open socket: 110 Connection timed out”

    10/03/10 23:15:25 ► [Extended Ping] http://rpc.pingomatic.com/ was successfully pinged
    10/03/10 23:15:35 http://rpc.technorati.com/rpc/ping could not be pinged. Error message: “transport error - could not open socket: 110 Connection timed out”

    Thanks in advance

    I really don''t care a lot.

    I use Blog and ping , Blog ping , ping , Blog Search , Speed Test , Rank and sometimes get a lot of errors, but nothing that can't be solved within a few days.

    Never have understood why people use WP plugins to ping. It uses Pingomatic by default which pings pretty much every search engine or site that is going to provide your site any "real" visibility...

    Sami, the majority of ping services on ping lists appear to have gone out of business, changed their ping address or have servers that are overloaded. Eliminate all of the services that cannot be pinged because it slows down your posting dramatically.

    Social-media might have a good point. I have not seen any difference in traffic between pinging a list of services and just pinging Pingomatic.

    Hi,

    I have Pingomatic on the list those are the ones showing errors.

    Will remove them.

    Thought it was something that happened on my end That I could have done.

    Thanks

    Got to keep in mind.
    At any given moment, any given site may not be accessible.
    Ping 20 sites at one time, 1 or more might be off just enough to show errors.
    Ping the same 20 sites later, no errors. Or new errors for other sites.
