I have been trying to find out about trackback and how and why I would use them, but i cannot find anything that makes any sense to me.
Is a trackback when you would enter some content and refer back to another blog and thereby giving them "credit"? I found some information on it here - http://en.support.wordpress.com/trackbacks/ - but it doesnt make complete sense to me.
it states there "think of trackbacks as the equivalent of acknowledgements and references at the end of an academic paper or chapter in a text book." so i get that portion but if I am posting up a post it is uunlikely that i would use a trackback or would I? and why would I? and if i eneterd it is it visible to everyone?
sorry if this is a dumb question but i just cannot get my head around why I would need a trackback in my post?
The blog I need help with is ragingrant.wordpress.com.
