Pingchecker

Scans post for links, checks if they are pingeable and sends pingbacks with results returned, improves chances of successful pings!

What do the pingback error codes mean?

While some of the pingback error codes are self-explanatory, others can be a little confusing. There is a list of fault codes and some suggestions here: http://pingbackpro.com/support/#faultcodes

What if the resource I am linking to isn't pingeable?

Unfortunately there isn't a great deal you can do about this, apart from sending an email to the owner of the blog you are pinging, you could try to find a similar resource that is pingeable.

Will installing this plugin improve the success of my pings?

Yes, actually. Pingchecker includes a workaround for a bug in the WordPress XML RPC server that can frequently return pingback fault 17, which basically says your post doesn't contain a link when it really does. A hidden div element is added to page containing the links in your post which makes them easier to find by the server code, allowing more pings to succeed.
