Pingbacks

What the heck are pingbacks? I keep getting emails that I have a pingback. I think it's usually on items I submit to IBH.

If you are reposting an article from your site or referencing something from your site on IBH. IBH will ping the site the article or link came from, you can either approve it or delete it. I typically approve pings that are legitimate and delete the ones that are spam.
