    I've found out that pinging a site is very useful for SEO purposes. It is a good way to gain backlinks. However, I am not sure about the sharing of a pinging site that you make reference. How are they sharing a site to ping?

    Pinging is making some blogging sites aware that you have updated the content on your site.Nothing about backlinks but its great for faster indexing of your content in search engines especially in Google.

    It does about as much good as repeatedly smacking yourself in the head.

    I've experienced a few people in my travels that have had some varied degrees of success smacking themselves in the head. ;)

    If you use yoast plugin for wp it will be ping the big directories (if set) just go with that. I sometimes use pingler.com but haven't seen much boost in serps because of it, though it does ping some good sites i.e. google news etc

    Pinging give indication to Google about your new post. It is like you throw your post in front of Google. It is helpful to index your post soon.

    I usually submit a new sitemap to Google after a major redesign for on-site. For offsite I'd avoid pinging newly built links, they work fine for a while, but when you ping too much, even with so-called drip feed from experience have a slight chance of sinking the site when you are unlucky.

    pinging site is beneficial for blogs but if for website it does not very effective. Pinging the website means to invite a webmaster for crawl you website.
    When you post a Blog, its must necessary to crawl you content as soon as possible before some one copied it. so if ping the blog on search engine than your content is self and beneficial for SEO.

    What happens when you begin Pinging Your Website

    1. Some of those websites add your blog in their directory giving you a one way link.
    2. Some of those websites list your blog in their recently updated blog list.
    3. Search engines quickly come to your blog, index it and start sending traffic.
    4. Blog search engines like Google Blog Search, Yahoo Search Blog, etc… also crawl and index your blog which in turn send additional traffic.
    5. People visiting those blog directories see your blog there and come to your blog.
    6. Blogrolling scripts like blogrolling.com and WordPress check update services to see if you’ve updated and then they reflect that on everyone’s site, usually by moving you to the top of people’s blogrolling list or putting a recently updated indicator by your link.
    7. Other sites like weblogs.com and blo.gs list the most recently updated blogs and many people browse these to find something new when they’re bored.​
