I was looking around a WP travel blog I have trying to understand the site and what it is all about. This is more a learning experience than something that I expect to make any money with. I have been thinking about the pinging I have read about and was wondering how that was done and found the "list" (one URL) and thought, so that is where it is supposed to go. I have a ping list saved on my hard drive that I got from someone and it has about 40 URLs. My question is should I actually use that many URLs to ping and is there any downside to a list of that many? Or am I wrong to consider that a long list?
Any other information on pining that anyone would like to share with a newbie would be appreciated.
One other thing I was wondering about is, I don't see anywhere for anyone to subscribe in order to post if they wanted to. Is it possible that I deleted that? My stats tell me that I am getting an average of almost ten visitors a day at this point. No one is staying long so I am not planning on any celebrations yet but I would like to figure this WP thing out so I can start a real blog with some advertising links on it so any information would be welcome.
