Ping-O-Matic — Connection Time Out!!!

ping o matic logo

Update: As of Friday Noon July 27, 2007 it was working again.

Request Timeout

This request takes too long to process, it is timed out by the server. If it should not be timed out, please contact administrator of this web site to increase ‘Connection Timeout’.

You might want to try and send a manual ping for your site! I’m getting connection time out error meaning right now it doesn’t appear any pings are going through.

There is not contact form at Ping-O-matic so the next best thing is to blog about it and see if everyone is getting the same results. Ping-o-matic

I usually don’t rely on WordPress to automatically send out pings whenever a post is published. I like to see it myself. Sometimes I get the Hold on Cowboy you just sent a Ping! and that is fine. I know it went. Sometimes I don’t.

I also check to see if the post is there. Yesterday was a busy day, I didn’t do either. This morning I’m looking for one of the post on and it isn’t anywhere to be found. I try to manually ping and I’m getting Connection Time Out Errors on all browsers.

Check it out and let me know if anyone else is getting the same message. If so, it would appear they have been down for at least 24 hrs. maybe longer and there are a lot of blogs out there sending pings, or at least they think they are.

I’ll be interested to see what results you are getting.

For now you can use AutoPinger

  • Scroll down when you get there.
  • I suggest you check let me fill in the title.
  • Scroll down again, (on some browsers)
  • Fill in your information
  • Ping

Hope you all have a great pinging day. : )

    I have used ping-o-matic before, and as recently as Thursday, without issue. wonder if it was just a short event.

  4. hi, I am trying to ping my company’s recent blogs that were posted on their website onto google blogger, any tips? I am a little confused on how to go about this. I have been on Google Bloggers’ website and read over the directions, but I am still pretty lost. Any sort of help would be great!
