    Hi


    I'm anaylsing my competitors links.

    On one web page they have a "Trackback"

    What is the difference between a comment and trackback.

    And how did they get a trackback on that page?

    so if they write a blog post and link a website, they get a link on that website?


    How is that possible?

    Trackback links can be created with a simple http POST request to any page that accepts them. Both comment and trackback links don't have much SEO value these days though aside from helping tiers get indexed.

    Trackback is the automated effort of your publishing platform to inform 3rd party websites that your article contains info that is related to them.

    On the other hand a comment is a manual procedure. You visit a post and write your feedback.
