    I started doing some trackback backlinks to my blog, and I receive dozen of 'pingback notification' emails daily.
    Do I have to approve those pingback/trackback in order for my site to take advantage and count that as a backlink?

    Seoactive,

    Since the approval mechanism is in place to prevent spam, yes, you should approve these in order for them to count. Read the trackback and pingback section of this post on Introduction to Blogging. Its about 3 quarters of the way down.

    Hope that helps,
