Testing

Movable Type (the weblog tool I'm using now) allows a feature called TrackBack, which means that anyone using the same or similar tool can write an article on their weblog, referencing mine, and a link to their article will show up at the bottom of mine.

This works both ways, so if I wrote an article referencing someone else's article on their weblog, and they have TrackBack enabled, my weblog will 'ping' theirs, and their article will have a link back to mine.

I am just experimenting with this, so I'm not sure of the details, but I think the links only happen in archived articles, to allow a permalink. We'll see.
