What Is a Trackback in Blogging?

A trackback is a feature of many blogging platforms that allows readers to follow a blog post or some other article on the website by clicking on a link in the post. When the reader clicks on the link, the blog software sends a “trackback” request to the original author of the post.

The author then has the option of either clicking on the trackback to return to the post, or adding a comment to the post in response to it.
