Why Trackbacks are considered Important for Blogs ?

Updated on February 17, 2010

I've decided to write an article about trackbacks where I've writed my opinion about the importance of trackbacks.

Using trackbacks we can announs other bloggers that we are linking from our blog to one of their articles. If you are using the old-fashioned method of sharing links it’s a less efficient method because if you use trackbacks the linked blogger will find out immediately about your article and where you’ve send a link to him , but if you just place links in your article , the other blogger will not find out about your link to his blog.

Google use the number of backlink as a sign of authority and as a singn of importance.If you receive more backlinks for an article that other article on the same topic,the article which had received more backlinks it’s ranked higher.

As a conclusion a conclusion of my article,trackbacks are important for a blog because :

-Using trackbacks you can get more traffic

-Using trackbacks you can increase your Page Rank

-You can use backlinks for branding

- You can use backlinks for getting new loyal readers

      I haven't made much use of trackbacks for backlinks. Do you think they are still effective since Google Panda and Penguin Updates?
