Ping question (2 posts)

    WordPress version: 3.4.2
    WordPress SEO version:

    I did this:

    I use this plugin on my website, but also use JetPack plugin and ofcourse recent version of WordPress.

    I expected the plugin to do this:

    Ping updates.

    Instead it did this:

    I actually just have a question. In your SEO plugin I see there is a ping to: Google, Bing, Yahoo.com (optional) and Ask.com (optional).

    But in Jetpack there is also a 'Improved distribution (verbeterde distributie)' part, which tells me it shares my content with searchengines (not telling me which one).

    Also I discovered 'Update services' in the main installation of WordPress telling me this: WordPress makes this easy for you by listing Ping-O-Matic's server (rpc.pingomatic.com) by default. All you need to do is sit back and let it work for you!

    On http://pingomatic.com/ there are a lot of site which are being pinged I quess by default wordpress installation.

    My first idea, do I have to shut down 2 of this 3 services? Please give me your thoughts about this, because I don't know if this can harm my SEO.

    Kind regards,
