Anyone heard of StartTags.com?

    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. 

    Thoughts anyone?

      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.

    I wouldn't bother, it looks pretty spammy to be honest!
