    Lets say I do an AMR blast or SenukeX blast on a page, I'll get a bunch of pingbacks. Is there any benefit to accepting them or should I just decline/trash them?

    I mean, one of my posts have over 100 pending pingbacks that I am itching to trash. Should I trash them? or should I just create some kind of DIV box that is initially collapsed but can be expanded with jQuery, if people are interested?

    I am not an expert at all on pingbacks or trackbacks, but I was wondering the same thing and said "what the hell" and approved a bunch of them, my traffic went up... Dont know if it was just a coincidence or if it truly helped... I'd like to know a definitive answer for this no doubt!

    Anyone want to chime in? or is it just one of those things where I should just delete and carry on?

    I tend to always delete them (not 'spam' them but delete). The benefits would be that your page would incur some outbound links which when a 'legit' trackback, can be beneficial. However, in these cases we are talking crappy AMR directory sites which won't give any value so it is simply not worth cluttering up your page with them.

    The opposite can however be said for commnets - if used correctly these can help add additional comments and freshness to your pages. I have a system which posts lots of unique 'comments' to my blog network each week. I have been doing this for over 4 months now and the increase in traffic has been expodential as a result of the G bot continually coming around indexing the 'new' comments - its all about signals and a well commented blog (without lots of outbound linking to shitty sites) is a positive signal to G that your content is engaging readers....;)
