Reciprical Trackbacks

Here is an interesting article from the Commissar regarding trackbacks, ran across it while persuing the Showcase. For me, being in the top 1000 is pretty nice. With the whole issue with the TTLB Ecosystem database, I lost about 100 or so links, including 17 well earned links for the Guardian Story, which I actually had a short pissing match with the Guardian about. The big thing, as the Commissar says, is to write where the story came from. Sometimes it may be inadverdent, but, there are ways to check where links come from, particularly the TTLB. Things get imbedded. No one will be upset if you link them. Heck, if a lefty, pardon, Progressive, links me, and mocks me, hey, that’s cool, as I know they are reading my stuff.

So, always mention where it came from. Give a hat tip. Check out this post on use of pop up pages, good way to keep folks around.

PS: this came out rather snarky, which was not my intention. More of a 411.

    I use that pop-up code for as many links as I can remember to do it for. Normally, in an article, I tend to use the built in features. It’s a time saver for blogspot and typepad. I wish they had the auto button for the pop up.

    Something else that’s rather groovy I’m thinking of putting up is a listing referrers thing. Truefresco does it. An example is at

    It’s an auto-reciprocal link generator. Plus, it’s sort of bragging about who’s talking about you.

    I have been trying to find something that will go out and find links, but, the only one I can find “wholinkstome,” doesn’t seem to work. Can never pick up the address.

    Listing referrers is not only cool, it’s helpful in seeing where traffic is coming from so that you can change/upgrade/improve your site per the demand.

    Groovy site you got here.

    Blog on.
