A CDE Definition
A cross referencing system between blogs that was introduced in the Movable Type blogging software in 2002. When you make a comment on your blog about a subject posted on another blog, TrackBack is used to enable that blog to link back to your comment on your blog. It also allows a title and excerpt of the comment to be included with the link.
Both blogs must use blogging software that supports the TrackBack protocol. The TrackBack is initiated by selecting a link in your blog and filling in a title and excerpt. The software contacts the blog to see if it will accept a TrackBack. See Pingback.
An automated cross referencing system between blogs. When you make a comment on your blog about a subject posted on another blog, Pingback is used to enable that blog to link back to the comment on your blog. Unlike TrackBack, the link back does not include a title and excerpt; however, it is more automatic as a result.
Both blogs must use blogging software that supports the Pingback protocol. When the Pingback is initiated, your blog software automatically contacts all the sites you have linked in your blog to see if they accept Pingbacks. See TrackBack.
