Where is Pingoat

August 4th, 2008 by Rose DesRochers · 9 Comments, a service that pings various websites when your blog is updated, has been offline for over a month now. When you go to you are greeted with a blank white page that says they are currently doing system maintenance. I didn’t notice this before, because WordPress pings various services for me. WordPress users can modify their ping list on the Control Panel, then Options, then Writing.

Before I started using Pingoat I used to use offers a similar service to that offered by Pingoat.

What ping service do you use?

    I don’t use any ping service currently. I get so little traffic from searches anyway I’m not sure it would be that beneficial.

    Hmmm. Perhaps I could improve that by pinging some of those services, lol.

    I only ping on Technorati—until this post had never heard of these people. A month to do site maintenance sounds excessive?

    I don’t even know what that is or how it is useful. I’m not very blog bright. I just type hoping that someone who wants a laugh will stumble on to my site and giggle!

    Hi Rose thanks for the link, I used to use ping omatic, but lately it says I’ve already pinged, which I haven’t any ideas why ❓

    I found this article after seeing the white page you mention. I am going try some pinging for my blogs. Thanks for the advice.

    Not sure what’s up with Pingoat…Unfortunate at best. Thanks for the link though…that one was new to me.

    Actually yes…Pingoat showed up yesterday for me, though I had almost ceased to check it so I don’t really know when it came back….but nonetheless, I’m glad it’s back.
