After reading a lot about hidden links in themes, I decided to take a look at what my homepage contained.
I found that in every post, there is a commenad included
<?php trackback_rdf(); ?>
That produces this result
<!-- <rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#" xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" xmlns:trackback="http://madskills.com/public/xml/rss/module/trackback/"> <rdf:Description rdf:about="http://www.wisnaes.com/2007/08/10/welcome-to-the-google-show/" dc:identifier="http://www.wisnaes.com/2007/08/10/welcome-to-the-google-show/" dc:title="Welcome to the Google show!" trackback:ping="http://www.wisnaes.com/2007/08/10/welcome-to-the-google-show/trackback/" /> </rdf:RDF> -->
The trackbacks etc. for my site - http://www.wisnaes.com - are fully understandable, but the links to purl.com and madskills.com are a bit strange. Why are they there? Why do I need them? As these appear on every post I make, they generate a lot of links back to these two sites.
The madskills.com link is not even working. It gives a 404. And the other link give a homepage for PURL. No idea why I should sponsor that...
Any comments and ideas are welcome!
