A little background, we have a theory that content scrappers are using our feeds to scape and post our site content and it might be negatively effecting or search results. This topic was mentioned by Google engineer Matt Cutts at PubCon 2011. A solution that was put forth was to use "Fat Pings". Basically, ping Google as soon as the content is published so their servers have a strong record of the source server. Hosted services like Blogger and Wordpress.com already do this using pubsubhubbub.
So my question is: Does anyone know if there is an existing add-on or code for doing 'pings' when content is added to a channel or feed in Expression Engine?
Aside: Are the Ellis Labs support forums incredibly slow for anyone else or is it just me?
