Trackbacks : Use Trackbacks To Promote Your Blog

What is a trackback? 

A trackback is where you notify other blogs that you are talking about them. This is an easy way to start a “conversation”. This is important because if you write enough about the blogs in your industry, it can really get you noticed. 

A trackback should not be used for the reason of getting noticed. First trackbacks allow you to share information from another blog with your readers. Second trackbacks allow you to give your opinion on a specific topic.

How to do a trackback:

Step 1:

If you are reading someone’s blog and you like a particular post, click on the title of the article, and go to that page.

Step 2:

Look in the address bar of that page and copy the link (that link is called a PERMALINK).

Step 3:

Go to your blog and paste the link into your post. For example, you might write “I was just over at George’s blog reading his great post on trackbacks. http://……..

Step 4:

In most blogging software it is that easy. When you publish your post it will automatically “ping” George’s blog and leave him a message saying that you did a trackback.

Step 5:

Watch your screen the first time you do it to see if there’s a message that says something to the effect of “pinging http://…….”

Step 6:

6) If you don’t see a message to this effect, then it means that your blogging software doesn’t handle trackbacks automatically. Therefore, you’ll have to do an additional step. On the page that you composed your post look for a place that says “trackbacks”.  Paste the PERMALINK (http://….) in the trackback box and then publish your post.
