Typepad Trackback & Pingback

I have never used Typepad, I have never felt the need. I started with Blogger a couple of years ago, quickly progressed to using predominantly WordPress and never looked back.

When I link to a Wordperss blog, most of the time I can just use pingback which autodiscovers the trackback URL for any blog I link to within a post and sends a trackback to the blog owner.

WordPress VS Moveable Type – Six Apart Under Attack

I have never used Moveable Type as a blogging platform. I found WordPress to be better than Blogger in many ways, and moved a large number of my sites over to WordPress (but only on my own domains). That being said, I am frequently asked what are the differences between WordPress and Moveable Type, especially for a business blogger who might experience high traffic load.

Trackbacks to Moveable Type and Hacked WordPress Sites

Am I the only one who feels slightly disconnected from the conversation when blogs using Moveable Type, or a modified WordPress installation don’t trackback.

If your blog doesn’t trackback, I am less inclined to link to you and join your conversation. I might just comment, but that doesn’t send my readers to see what you wrote either.
