If I have multiple blogs, which one is used in a trackback link?

    Yup I’m a newb to the blogging. I have registered a couple of domains on bluehost and installed wordpress. I also have an old blog from 2010 on wordpress.com. All my blueshost blogs are registered with Jetpack. My question is if I leave a comment on someone else’s blog how do I control which of my domains gets used in the trackback?

    I ask because the one time I left a comment it tracked back to my old 2010 blog and not my current one.

    Thanks very much!

    The blog I need help with is keirjapan2010.wordpress.com.



    You log in to the correct account. Your WordPress.com and .org logins are totally separate.


    So whatever the current wordpress blog I am currently logged into will be the one that gets used in the linkback?

    I would assume that is also browser independent? So if I use Safari and log into one account it would linkback there. On Chrome logged into a different blog it would link back to that one?






    Similar issue but all blogs are on WordPress. I have a couple of blogs that have Goddady registered domains on the same WordPress account but would like to use different avatars/gravatars for each one of the blogs when I like someone’s post or follow them. Is it possible? and if it is, how can I set it up?




    There is only one gravatar for every username account.
    To have different gravatars for each blog requires registering new username account and then transferring the blogs to them.

    Every WordPress.COM blog has a sole owner and it is the person with the WordPress.COM username account who registered the blog under that username account and associated email address.

    You must be logged in as Admin http://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/#administrator under the exact same username account that registered the blog and purchased upgrades to renew them or transfer the blogs and the upgrades to another username account.

    To transfer a blog from one username account A to another username account B you must first log in under the username account A that owns the blog you want to transfer to the other username account.

    Then you add the other username account B as an Admin of the blog.
    adding users http://en.support.wordpress.com/adding-users/
    user roles http://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/

    Then you A can use this process to transfer the blog to that username account B instead http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#transferring-your-blog-to-another-user-or-account
