People who read more than a couple of posts on this blog may have noticed that I frequently quote and link to other blogs for various topics, sometimes I’ll have several of those in one post.

The main reason is that there are a lot of people who know more than I do about World of Warcraft, and the other reason is for the trackbacks.

A trackback is just an acknowledgment on blog A that Blog B has linked to a particular post. They’re easy to make and they’re pretty much automatic for the more recent blogging platforms.

Pretty much everything I know about trackbacks (and linking) came from linking expert Jack Humphrey. He’s put together an easy to understand video, which explains all of the How and Why of trackbacks.
