Hi folks,
I don't know how to use pingback and trackback in my wordpress blog, are there any advantages when using these functions and what is the difference between pingback and trackback?

Hi Lawrencegordon,

Here is a good explanation:

Trackbacks and pingbacks are methods for alerting blogs that you have linked to them. The difference between them is:

Trackbacks must be created manually, and send an excerpt of the content.
Pingbacks are automated and don't send any content.

Source: Wordpress Org

In addition I really recommend that you read this post...

As you will see I am not a fan of pings/trackbacks due to the risk of stolen content, spam commenting and DDOS attacks...

Hope that helps!

Cheers,

Sid
