Recently, I’ve been spending more time trying to understand how people are making money off of their blogs. Some folks are making several thousands of dollars a month, just by posting! Don’t get me wrong, I like my job, but if the time ever comes that I’m making $5,000 or so per month from my blog, I’m outta there!
One of the things people use to increase traffic to their blog is a trackback. I only had a vague idea what that was and how it worked, but after reading the WordPress Trackback Tutorial at OptiNiche, I get it now. The tutorial also mentions pingbacks which are similar to trackbacks. More on those later.
