My post about how to do Trackbacks has been well received. Already, some of my readers have linked to the post... and Google has indexed it and started sending traffic to it.
So, to continue the discussion, I figured I would share another little "Trackback trick" that I learned by observing other A-list bloggers. Here it is...
Instead of always sending Trackbacks to other blogs, consider...
Sending a Trackback to Your OWN Blog!
I've only recently begun to do this because:
It improves blog navigation by linking related articles together.
It increases page views per visit. (If a person reads an article and enjoys it, they are likely to read another "deeper" article on the same topic.)
It can help boost search engine rankings. (For instance, Google looks at what incoming links say, but also looks at what links within your site say.)
If you've never done a Trackback before, this is also a low-risk way to learn how to do one. Simply write two related posts and send a Trackback from one to the other.
Once you feel comfortable with how the process works, then start sending Trackbacks to other bloggers. Make sense? Alright, go to it!
