    Source Wikipedia:

    Code:
    Trackbacks are used primarily to facilitate communication between blogs;
     if a blogger writes a new entry commenting on, or referring to, an entry found at another blog, 
    and both blogging tools support the TrackBack protocol, then the commenting blogger can notify 
    the other blog with a "TrackBack ping"; the receiving blog will typically display summaries of, and 
    links to, all the commenting entries below the original entry. This allows for conversations spanning 
    several blogs that readers can easily follow.
    A trackback submitter software fakes those "pings" making the reciving blog to publish info and backlinks.
