    Maxsamuel,

    A thoughtful question you have here. A trackback URL is used to notify a third party that they are being mentioned or otherwise referenced somewhere else on the web. In the context of social bookmarking, the trackback URL allows another party to know that their content has been bookmarked. This is similar to the CC function in an email message.

    Here is more information on trackbacks,

    Here also is an interesting post on trackbacks and how they can increase blog traffic,

    Hope this answers your question,
