    Hi,

    I was wondering that if you get lots of trackbacks to your blog (which I do), what are these exactly? What to do with them? I've started just recently (like in last 1-2 weeks) getting lots of these. I understood they are not comments, but are they just people wanting to get some backlinks or exchange links, OR, are they spam mostly (like many of the comments too)? I've checked out some of the sites and they look decent but haven't done anything about these trackbacks nore comments yet (as I've found many of the comments to be spam, but there are some purely nice ones too). I'm new in blogging so would need some advice... Thanks! :)

    Well trackbacks are sent from other blogs if they link to your article in their post. Still there are a lot of spammers abusing this feature.
