Pings Not Working

Hello everyone,

Hopefully someone can help me out. I’m running a Wordpress site on a shared host (GoDaddy). I have two pings set:

http://rpc.pingomatic.com/

For some reason, it seems that these pings aren’t working as I’ve gotten no pingbacks and I can’t find myself listed in either of them.

Any ideas?

Add one of your url’s to the ping list, publish a post, and then check your http logs to see if your url got hit.

Those 2 url’s won’t ping you back, pingbacks from bloggers picking your post.

Unfortunately I’m on a shared host and it’s really difficult (if not impossible) to find the appropriate access logs. I install a ping optimizer plugin which reports back the status, and according to that, it says most of them are working (I’ve added a few more). Hopefully all is well. I guess I’ll wait a few more weeks and then take a look again to see if they indexed it.

Thanks.
