Method of implementation[edit]

How does one "append" a trackbck to a blog post? How to create a trackback? -- Either manually, or using the automatic system?

"...the commenting blogger can notify the other blog with a "TrackBack ping"

How to notify? On the Linkback article, there is a "trigger mechanism". Do I need to do something to get this to work?

"A Trackback is what you give to someone for them to ping you with when they post an entry about your entry."

How do you give it to someone?

"So - A Trackback is a URL. When used, the Trackback URL receives a copy of the originating server's address. If enbabled, a Pingback is sent to the originating server's URL to verify that it is not a spam Trackback."

Does the pingback/tackback/pingback URL from the source blog get posted in your blog entry to get the pingback to engage?

Seconding all these questions. I learned something from the article but not enough. A flow chart would be good to have, also an example situation walking the reader through every step, from Blogger A publishing, to Blogger B attempting to "trackback", until finally the TB appears on Blogger A's blog.89.204.138.97 (talk) 12:36, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
