    When pinging a recently updated blog, is it best to ping the new article's page, or would it be best to ping the blog's home page?

    Great. Should different services be used then? According to my research, pinging the same site too rapidly can lead to penalties.

    I am not aware of the consequences for frequent pinging, but why you need to ping it many times? I ping only one time, once the blog is cached I don't ping it unless there is a change in it.

    This has been my method as well. I ping if I update a post, or create a new post.

    So in this case, you can ping as many times as you want.

    Pinging the newly created page will be more than enough or if you have many new pages, then pinging a website sitemap in xml format is also enough as Google can follow from there as well.
