Trackbacks

In a nutshell, a 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.

An example...

 

  1. Person A writes something on their blog.
  2. 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
  3. Person B posts on her own blog and sends a trackback to Person A's blog
  4. 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
