    Ive been told that if you wanted to get software to ping pingomatic

    this would be the URL

    http://rpc.pingomatic.com/

    like with yahoo its

    http://api.my.yahoo.com/rss/ping?u=YOURBLOGHERE

    but with rpc.pingomatic.com hows that work???

    without physically going to the site and typing in your blog url and title

    In WordPress: Options > Writing, scroll down to 'Update Services'.

    (I assume you're not asking about the technical aspects of rpc pings.)

    The basic jist of it is, that Pingomatic has a little script running on it that takes pings it receives and then sends them out to all the ping services it has on it's list. Someone else can get more technical, if you'd like.

    Ping once manually. The results page will have a link that you can bookmark, or use to ping again, without manually filling things up.

    Why wouldn't you just let WP handle it automatically?

    My question is: how does the http://rpc.pingomatic.com/mysite
    know which pings I want sent. I have chosen them in the manual pingomatic site. Do they autmatically send the same ones I would send manually with POM?

    The automatic ping sent via WP pings all of ping-o-matic's services.

    including the specialized services, like audio blogs?

    That is the exact same question I have. This is the only thread I found that asks this?

    Pingomatic pings all the services it lists on its website. Simple as that.
