It  has been possible to judge that based on trackbacks. In the list under
"Already  pinged:", nothing will appear until an item is published. In the
past,  whenever I added a trackback URL after publication, it was appended
to  the list, which implies pinging recurred. What I am not too sure about
are  scenarios  where an item is republished within less than  5  minutes.
Putting  aside the fact that Ping-o-Matic has been down today/late yester-
day,  it  generally  disallows frequent pinging. "Slow down,  Cowboy",  it
days. *smirk*

Hope it contributes,
