What is a TrackBack URL?

Thats the question popped up when i saw it on blog sites. Then the curiosity started the quest to search it. So, i did my research on the web and found out it is really a y cool concept!! Should i say it is a method of links/blogs socializing with each other Laughing Sounds funny aha

This is an expert from WiKi "Trackbacks are used primarily to facilitate communication between blogs; if a blogger writes a new entry commenting on, or referring to, an entry found at another blog, and both blogging tools support the TrackBack protocol, then the commenting blogger can notify the other blog with a "TrackBack ping"; the receiving blog will typically display summaries of, and links to, all the commenting entries below the original entry. This allows for conversations spanning several blogs that readers can easily follow." This WiKi link can be accessed here.

Sounds too Geeky to you!! check this nice write up about trackbacks by Michael in his blog.
