Um, I think what the user means is that if you link to content, link to the actual content rather than just the top level of the blog.
trackbacks don’t appear on your blog at all, they only appear as a comment on the blog you are tracking back.
if you mean it as a footnote, it’s best to just add a link at the end of the post. that will automatically generate a pingback, as well as granting greater authority to the linked post (as far as search engines are concerned).
posting a trackback without a link would only grant greater authority to your post. hence the trackback-ee getting snippy.
It’s means the other blogger is being a stuck up little … :)
Picture that your writing a post and throw in a link to a post on my blog just for the heck of it. What you’re writing has nothing to do with my post. You’re just doing it in an attempt to gain a link and maybe gain some readers.
The blogger you uses that rule has had that happen to them and they don’t like folks doing that.
team geekery – kewl
got lots of info and crossed eyes too %(
but this was *the ticket to comprehension*

:0 – you mean being a link harlot – gottcha
now the foregoing how to’s become useful
thanks guys :)
It sounds like the blogger in question is trying to discourage spam blogs from trackbacking to him. I once got a trackback from a spam blog that askimet failed to catch.
Only once. WOW! Well, that’s a testament to how well it works then, isn’t it?
