The documentation for Askbot says:

Google will be pinged each time question, answer or comment is saved or a question deleted and the site verification key is required for this to work.

Why does this happen? What information is sent to google in the process?

Ping is a very cheap operation - it just tells that your site has changed so the robot can re-crawl it.

Looks like your site will be internal - I'll add a "enable/disable" google ping option into the settings for the cases like yours.
