A person I know, that will remain anonymous, has problems receiving trackbacks. So looking around Google I found this site: Red Alt – Ping-o-Mation
What it basically does is:
This tool checks to see if your blog has recently pinged Ping-o-Matic, or has sent a trackback to RedAlt.
So what do I have to do? Simple:
First, test to see if outgoing trackbacks and pingbacks from your site to other sites work. To do this, create a new post on your blog. In that post, create a link to this URL: http://redalt.com/ping
So to make sure I place a link to http://redalt.com/ping that probably shows nothing, but makes sure a ‘ping’ is sent.
In the Trackback field of your post editor, add the RedAlt Trackback URL: http://redalt.com/ping
Done. So here’s the post and hopefully my outgoing pings/trackbacks have worked. To see I need to go to the site and enter my URL.
Update: Check! My blog can send pings & trackbacks. 🙂 Now some more investigating…
