BlitzPing/1.0 by Otus(Posted 1+ years ago)
Finds all external links on a web page and tries to ping those using the pingback protocol http://www.hixie.ch/specs/pingback/pingback-1.0

You don't need a fancy blogging platform to engage in conversation - you can ping even links on a static HTML website. Also recommended to make up for Blogger's poor trackback support.

Note: Does *not* currently check for robots exclusion protocols. Probably should.
'BlitzPing/1.0

'GETs a document, and pings the external links found.
