Stay connected with other blogs through pingbacks and trackbacks

Trackbacks and pingbacks are tools used to link to other blogs - in other words, if another website mentions your blog, it will show up in the trackback section along with a small excerpt and vice-versa. WordPress, which powers most of internet blogs, has these features enabled by default - so this is a good way to get some increased exposure from WordPress blogs.
