    A pingback is a URL that typically shows up at the end of a blog post in the comment section. They're sometimes also known as trackback URLs. You'll normally see a URL with some verbiage to go with it like a post title. Sometimes an IP address is added.

    If you're a blogger and you see a pingback in the comments section of one of your blog posts, that means a particular website or blog has linked to your post. You can click on the URL and see who it is.

    So How Can a Pingback URL be Useful?
    • You can thank the blog owner who linked to your site. Build a relationship.
    • You can check out the site that linked to you. Is there an opportunity to guest post?
    • Check the type of sites linking to you. Perhaps these sites are the kind you should be looking into more often.

    Pingback URL is a type of Link back method for web authors to request a notification when some body links to their document.
    Web Publishing Software help to automatically notify the relevant parties in behalf of the User, allowing for the possibility of automatically creating links to referring domains.

    They're great for SEO because you're getting backlinks back to your post and everything like that. Backlinks, the more the better, especailly if they happen naturally!

    Pingback is always good! Like everyone else said it provides a backlink but you also know that your content is interesting and useful to people.

    I have a question here. Am I the only one who gets pingbacks that are nothing but spam. I have these spell casters that are constantly trying to link to my site.

    Alas no you are not the only one and they are just like an infestation on the web..not all pingbacks are good at all and if you allow all of them you will get some really shady links happening to tyre shops in Halifax england, or some other back water-examine your pingback and make sure it is high value!
