Trackbacks + Pingbacks + Link Rot

Hello peeps! 😀

First a couple quotes:

Trackback helps you to notify another author that you wrote something related to what he had written on his blog, even if you don’t have an explicit link to his article. This improves the chances of the other author sitting up and noticing that you gave him credit for something, or that you improved upon something he wrote, or something similar. With pingback and trackback, blogs are interconnected. Think of them as the equivalents of acknowledgements and references at the end of an academic paper, or a chapter in a textbook.

Within the WordPress interface, “ping” is sometimes used to refer to Pingbacks and Trackbacks.

In general computer terms, “ping” is a common utility used in a TCP/IP environment to determine if a given IP Address exists or is reachable. Typically, Ping is used to diagnose a network connection problem. Many times you will be asked, “Can you ping that address?”. That means, does the Ping utility return a success message trying to reach the “problem” IP Address?

Note that @ those quotes contain links (link text is within the quoted text above, but is not included here) linking to pages that do not exist (but which probably did exist when those texts were written). It is not very difficult to find the intended “linked to” texts, though (hint: they use HTML # / @ “anchor” links and are listed in the right-hand column of the updated / new page linked to via an error message). If that sounds weird, then maybe just “nevermind”. 😉

This post here is an invitation to link here (i.e. to this blog) if you feel like it. You can simply use the reblog button and let WP take care of all the technical nitty-gritty all by itself (“automagically”). I plan to do this maybe tomorrow — I don’t live today (lulz, if that sounds weird, then you don’t know Jimi Hendrix, do you? B-) )

As a blogger, you can feel quite lonely when you don’t have anyone to talk to about blogging or social media, especially during instances when you need help and don’t know who or how to approach another blogger.

I don’t know other bloggers in real life unless they are blogging secretively like me and I know so many bloggers who feel shy or awkward to make the first move.
