So I read about trackbacks and pings in WP documentation. But I’m a little new and I don’t exactly know how to actualy do what it discusses. Unfortunately, the docs don’t provide any further “instructions” beyond the conceptual discussion. I’ve looked on the forums, but I don’t often find the search engine here too efficient. So I’m posting this question.
I read in WordPresses own “training” vids that tracbacks can be preferable because an excerpt is provided. But that pingbacks are better at validating the poster.
In both I understand a track-/pingback to be:
When I want to comment on someone elses blog, I go ahead create a comment on the target blog, but somehow put a trackback (or pingback, as the case may be) into the comment. My understanding is that I do that by linking my blog with a normal URL.
So the big question: I that a correct idea of what this is all about?
What I think I’m able to do is to go to likeminded blogs, post a relevant comment that tracks-/pingsback to my blog, and I therefore allow others an opportunity to find my writing.
Is this how it works? Do I have the concept correct?
The topic ‘Trackback concept OK, but don't know how’ is closed to new replies.
