I'm setting up a list of ping services for a portal.
It has a blog, forum, articles, restaurants, hotels and many other information, so it is far beyond a blog.

I have a list of standard ping services for WP blogs - but I do not know if this should be literally only for blogs.

My questions are:

  1. Is it recommended to ping blog services from a portal, such as http://blogsearch.google.com/ping/RPC2?
  2. Are there any penalties for sites that are not recognized as blogs?
  3. Is there some list of ping services for regular websites and not only blogs?
