Using trackbacks to get more links and traffic

Exactly how to use trackback posts to get links from other bloggers and sites that use trackbacks.  Trackbacks are more powerful than commenting on someone’s blog because they use the title of the post you link to them with as the link back to your site.

Instead of signing a direct comment, which becomes the link to your site, with “Jack Humphrey,” a trackback link to your site will include your post title which should have keywords in it you are trying to score for in the engines.

So a post I make about “Blog Marketing” which includes links to other bloggers’ posts on the topic, this will return links to my blog marketing post with the anchor text:  Blog Marketing.  Very cool.  Very effective.

This video will explain it all and you will be doing a trackback in a matter of minutes from watching, I promise!
