Trackbacks on Blogger

Trackbacks are a little hard to understand. They are not intuitive. With some help from Adam, I've now figured what a trackback is and how to use it. Here's the steps:

1. Get set-up. Trackbacks are not built-in to blogger. You need a 3rd party tool. I use haloscan. Adam figured this all out and set it up for me.

2. Create an article and cite another blogs article. Here for instance, is a link to a comment on blogger trackbacks from haloscan's blog.

3. After publishing your article, login to haloscan and go to manage trackbacks and click send trackback ping and provide the url of the blog articles (cited and citee)
