Trackbacks are great however you need to be careful about causing "trackback spam". Basically a track back is a way to cross file different blogs on the same topic. For example I track back to a comment you made about how to make a car into an airplane from my blog as I am discussing the same topic. Now your blog will show a link to my blog and the post I made. This is only for inline trackbacks. The problem with this is that you get a lot of viagra sites track-backing into major and minor blogs so that links show up and they get their site all over. Most blog owners check their trackbacks and will delete them if this is done.. so be careful when trackbacking to someone that you are actually discussing the same topic.
