I've been getting pingbacks from a site called StartTags.com on my belly dance site.
They keep getting caught by Akismet. I can't quite work out what the site is doing - if it's giving me useful links then I'll be nice and rescue their comments from the spam bucket, otherwise I won't bother.
Marisa if its just a pingback then that is a notification that the site linked to your site. I'm quite certain that you don't have to link back. Was it on a wordpress site?
Yes, I know I don't have to link back, I'm just thinking I should be polite. Yes, it's a Wordpress site - it's the only thing I know how to do!
I would only worry about linking back to sites that add value to my readers and that site really adds no value other than sort of a directory. Wordpress is great, its mostly what I use. I only ask because I believe the pingback notification is built into their system. It wasn't the other site letting you know they linked to you, it was the system.

Lately i have been hearing a lot about these two sister sites, but just wished to know are they worth writing for in terms of revenue? I am sure some of you might be on these two sites, what is your opinion?
