Last week, I added the PingCrawl plugin to my WordPress installation. Ah, it was interesting, to say the least. I saw the load time for posts increase dramatically, and even getting my WordPress administration screen to load in a timely fashion was difficult.
The participation wasn’t that high, BUT, even I could see that my servers cannot handle the power of the great PingCrawl!
I will be manually adding pingbacks as I can, but if you have any suggestions, definitely leave them in the comments!
And on a side note, please donate to the American Red Cross to help those affected by Hurricane Gustav along my home, the Gulf of Mexico!
