Ping Module

The Ping module has one important function: to ping Ping-O-Matic (http://pingomatic.com) whenever your site has new content. This happens every time scheduled tasks are executed with cron.php, so you must have scheduled tasks configured in order for it to work. The pingomatic.com site, in turn, notifies a slew of sites, like technorati.com, which monitor activity on the Web. The Ping module offers a great way to make sure that your web site is visible on the Web and to help people interested in your content find where it is.

No configuration is necessary for the Ping module. Once you've enabled it and configured scheduled cron.php tasks, it will do its job in the background. See Chapter 6 for information about configuring cron.php tasks.
