Importing to WP.com : Trackbacks and Pingbacks

  1. Hi everyone,

    I have a blog at thezeds.com, and it is running on WP.org 3.0. I'm planning to export its content to WP.com for all the right reasons - no more worries about downtime, server upgrades, broken plugins, etc. I'm a season used of both WP.com and WP.org and I'm confident this is good solution for me.

    Now, the question:

    Can anyone tell me if WP.com will send out trackbacks/pings to all the sites I've linked to once I've imported the data to the server and gone live?, i.e., Does WP import/export this record so that trackbacks don't happen again?

    Since I will be domain mapping back to the URL, I won't need these trackbacks. However, I'm afraid that the trackbacks will happen automatically since the blog's data will be sitting on a new server in a new DB.

    Does anyone have an answer to this question? Your advice is appreciated.
