As a newbie to the world of blogging I did not understand many of the new terms presented to me. The other day while searching for something totally unrelated I came across an article that clearly explained what trackbacks, pingbacks and linkbacks were and how to effectively use them. I appreciated this article so much that I am including a linkback to this article here. As I have pingbacks activated in my options the original blog will be notified of this.
If I understand the explanation correctly, since I am also employing the trackback feature with /trackback/appended to the end of the original post link a copy of this post will be added to the comments. This way our posts are interconnected.
I’m showing a few examples of this in the comments below. The topics are not relevant. What matters is that these are comments/posts I made on someone else’s forum/blog and by adding the permalink to this post with /trackback/ behind it I was able to link the two together. Pretty nifty I think.
