Pingoat employs the XML RPC method for pinging the target servers. Unlike the traditional pinging, pinging a weblog service is different. An XML RPC ping is usually a string in the xml format, which holds the data to be delivered. When it comes to blog pinging, the method webLogupdates.ping is employed, along with other custom methods.
Pingoat also supports on-the-fly generation of Google sitemaps with simultaneous upload to ftp server and ping Google.
