I had noticed some comments appearing in my blog using ‘pingback’. Initially I ignored the meaning of ‘pingback’ but then began to notice it more on blogs I read and wondered about its origin. My understanding of pingback is that it is an automatic system notifying bloggers when a comment is made about a post they have written.
Sue Waters at The Edublogger kindly agreed to provide an explanation and demonstration of how it works. Sue recently wrote a very helpful post about using online polls in a blog, As a result of my mentioning and linking Sue’s post, Sue will automatically receive an email to notify her that I have mentioned her post.
So over to you Sue …
