I have a few questions regarding trackbacks. I just returned from a blogging conference and would like to acknowledge quite a number of people with links to their sites. I'm not quite sure I understand the purpose of a trackback vs a traditional hyperlink. The information that I've looked out here and elsewhere really isn't all that clear.
Is there a limit how on many you can (or should) add?
Is there a difference between a hyperlink and trackback? If so, which is better to use? I'd like to avoid looking like spam if possible.
Do they get "pinged" regardless of which method you use?
Thanks in advance for your help.
The blog I need help with is slworrell.wordpress.com.
