WordPress Tutorial for Beginners
PingBacks in WordPress
When people cite or use your entire blog post linking to you, WordPress automatically sends a ping-back to the content author. This way you can keep track on who is linking to you. In addition that's a way of acknowledging someone's authorship on certain content. You will see your pingbacks in the Comments section of your WordPress admin area. They will be listed amongst the regular comments. You can distinguish pingbacks from regular comments because the anchor text of the link to your site is automatically placed in square brackets by WordPress.
