    Hi!
    I'd like to know if this is normal:
    - I have a power by wordpress site and installed wp-o-matis and the social poster plugin. So when a post is created by wp-o-matic the other plugin is posting into some social bookmark sites... which is good :) ... However, I've noticed incoming traffic from other news sites, from where the wp-o-matic is colecting feeds. I've visited those pages and see a short extract of my post, with the title linking to my site.
    Now, is this normal, it has something to do with those 2 plugins or is it wordpress doing the trick? Should I worry?
    Notice that I'm a noob and just discovered wordpress. I've alsi disabled the pingback and trackback options 'cause I've heard they could consume much recources and actually dunno ecatly what they do.
    Thank you!

    that is a pingback - most folks desire those for blog exposure

    "Pingback lets you notify the author of an article if you link to his article (article on a blog, of course). If the links you include in an article you write on a blog lead to a blog which is pingback-enabled, then the author of that blog gets a notification in the form of a pingback that you linked to his article.

    Thanks Samboll.
    I guess this is good, then, since is a link-back to a page with similar content.
