For those of you without the ability to send TrackBack pings because of limitations of your blogging software, I’ve put a link to Kevin Aylward’s standalone pinger in the BLOGGING RESOURCES section of my left sidebar. You can also install his bookmarklet.

TrackBack is useful not only in letting bloggers know who has linked to them but in sending readers to the sites of said linkers. It comes with the additional benefit of gaining you an Ecosystem link on sites like Kevin‘s, Steven‘s, Laurence‘s, and mine that include inline TrackBack links.
