I was concerned over this problem and I clicked this link but Wordpress do not recommend this plug in.
Are there any other plugins that do it?

    I'd be interested to see JaRyCu's evidence for that. I'm sure G know how many sites are built using Wordpress and I'm sure they know that it automatically pings posts.

    If you are concerned to stop it, you don't need a plug-in.

    In your dashboard go to settings/ writing. Scroll to the bottom and delete pingomatic from update services.

    I's not recommended only because it haven't been updated in over 2 years. Not a big deal in case it it uses standard WP API. The best way to check the plugin compatibility with the latest version of WP is to run it in the debug mode ( define('WP_DEBUG', true); ) to see if there are deprecated functions.

    rosetrees, there are many other ping services besides Google, and not all of them are so loyal to pin spamming which is unfortunately still a big problem for WP.

      I was under the impression that Penguin was a Google phenomenon, and that seems to be what the OP is concerned about.

      The problem is that my blog is a wordpress.com (not wordpress.org) and they don't allow plug ins.
