Is pingging harmful?

  1. Jun 11, 2010 #1
    As I'm blogger I usually ping my posts on ping.fm, but I read somewhere that pinging can be harmful for Google ranking. What do you think?

    This is the real method by which your google ranking is determined, so I don't think the number of pings your blog receives will effect your ranking one way or another.
