Pingoat is a web service developed by Kailash Nadh, that pings a number of blog ping servers like Technorati, using XML RPC. Currently, pingoat pings around sixty such services.
Pingoat employs the XML RPC
method for pinging the target servers. Unline the traditional pinging, pinging a weblog
service is different. An XML RPC
ping is usually a string in the xml
format, which holds the data to be delivered. When it comes to blog pinging, the method webLogupdates.ping is employed, along with other custom methods.
Pingoat also supports on-the-fly generation of Google sitemaps with simultaneous upload to ftp server and ping Google.
