Excessive pinging can really damage a site page reputation. I've do it myself where I add a blog post, check it on the frontend and find a misspell or something that needs tweaking. I fix and save then find another... ugh! It's ping-ping-ping-ping-ping, etc. It's much better to add this plugin than expect a client to remember not to do this. Make it simple on your clients and just add this and forget it 😀

I installed this and donated to the developer for two reasons. This plug in only pings when on the first publish event, and it has a log!!!! I really wanted to see when pings were going out and this was the only plugin I found that provided this feature. I also donated to support the dev (and FYI the "Thank you" page that paypal links to after donating errors out) Feature thoughts: -Add a filter for ping versus not pinged in the log to make it easy to the ones that did go -Add export to csv/excel -Add time or row limit to keep log? I don't think I'd ever need anything older than 90days
