    I recently added a bunch of URL feeds in the Update services section of Word Press and now when I do a new post...it takes forever and then I get a blank screen with...
    http://www.performbettergolf.com/blog/wp-admin/post.php
    in the address bar.

    Can anyone help?

    Yes: delete them!
    (it's not a wise idea to have too many; some of them ping other services, too, so you'll end up double pinging and maybe banned...)

    EDIT. And next time give a "normal" title to your post - something more descriptive.

    Why would I not utilize that option with Word Press? So are you saying I should do a separate ping like at http://pingoat.com/ instead. I'm trying to get max coverage of my blog to increase traffic.

    To say what moshu did in smaller words:

    The more pingers you have in WP, the longer it will take to ping 'em. The longer it takes, the more likely you're likely to get a timeout and blank page.

    Related to that, many of the ping services ping the same places. So, if those places get a bunch of pings about you all at once, you'll get dropped or ignored, thus defeating your original goal.

    So do you have "one" ping service you use? Also, how do I implement "tags" within WP?

    I, personally, let feedburner do it for me.

    Ping-o-matic (default in WP) was having issues a month or so ago, but when it works it handles the job pretty well. Haven't tried it recently.

    As for tags, I suspect most folks use Ultimate Tag Warrior (aka UTW) plug-in. However, if you do a big of searching, you'll turn up at least one or two other plug-ins that are a bit "simpler" to get rolling with (or at least, not so daunting with options!).

    Do you have to sign up for it? As you can tell, I'm no tec geek :-)

    I didn't list anything that needs signup.
