Similar and Confusing Terminology...

    Backlinks?  Trackers?  Back-Tracking?

    Are they related?  Similar?  Different terms for the same thing?

    Backlinks are just links from other places to your hubs.

    Here's the FAQ on referral trackers:

    Backlinks to a hub are links that are received by the hub from other sites.

    A tracker lets you know if the traffic is coming from a certain site but you have to insert the tracker in the url when you post a link on that site.

    Backtracking is the process of tracing back to the source to find a solution or problem. I think that's what it means.

    Oh, ok..thank you both very much.  I just tried it--wrote a new blog article for the sole purpose of sending traffice to my more detailed article here...and inserted a backlink (referral tracker?) ...  I guess I'm still confused...

    Do the 'referral trackers' only mean sending someone to created a new account, or also 'referring' them to a specific article... (the 'share this article' link at the page bottoms?)
