Ping Yahoo! with MovableType

Go into your Weblog config, and add "http://api.my.yahoo.com/RPC2" to your URLs to ping. So in addition to blo.gs, weblogs.com, and the Moveable Type recent update key, here are all the sites that get pinged in my config:

http://rpc.blogrolling.com/pinger/
http://www.mod-pubsub.org/kn_apps/blogchatter/ping.php
http://rpc.technorati.com/rpc/ping
http://api.my.yahoo.com/RPC2
Update: http://ping.rootblog.com/rpc.php (got that from here)
Update: http://xping.pubsub.com/ping/ (got that from the comments on Neil's Pinging Service Run Down)

So a total of seven nine sites that get pinged whenever I post. Posts sometimes slow a tad to ping, but it's really not too bad. Besides: I get traffic from all of them, so it's worth it.

Why would you want to ping Yahoo? They are launching an RSS Aggregator.
