In a nutshell, TrackBack was designed to provide a method of notification between websites: it is a method of person A saying to person B,
 "This is something you may be interested in." To do that, person A sends a TrackBack ping to person B.

      A better explanation is this:
  * Person A writes something on their blog.

  * Person B wants to comment on Person A's blog, but wants her own readers to see what she had to say and be able to comment on her own blog

  * Person B posts on her own blog and sends a trackback to Person A's blog

  * Person A's blog receives the trackback, and displays it as a comment to the original post.

    This comment contains a link to Person B's post
