Ping back – What is it, and why should I care?

A “ping back” is a mechanism to allow your blog to know if a service like Twitter or another blog has a link to your blog. So if someone tweets your post, your blog might show that as a ping back comment.

It’s just another way of creating connections between similar content on the web, and sometimes it helps you to discover another blogger that you would like to build community with.
