Pingbacks: You Don’t Have to Read It, Just Delete It

Image via Wikipedia is my creative, freelance, and ghost writing website. I also have an animal/environmental advocacy and personal development websites, respectively. By the way, creating and maintaining blogs/websites that you’re passionate about is another way to showcase your writing ability. You can submit your blog posts as writing samples to editors and organizations.

Anyway, I use a program called Zemanta which finds links to blog posts and or articles that complement or match your topic. Lo and behold, I received an email from a guy who responded to a pingback that was created because I listed a link to his blog post on my personal development website. The website owner graciously approved the pingback because I didn’t write a negative or condemning blog post. However, he’s more ‘conservative’ when it comes to certain topics. Next time, I will take more time to ensure links and websites match or complement my websites.

Lesson: Before you list links on your website, make sure they complement or match your blog post and or article topic. If you receive pingbacks or trackbacks, you can delete them. Or, you could check them out to make sure they’re not spam. Delete pingbacks and trackbacks that aren’t helpful.

If you receive pingbacks to your blog posts, “Remember, you don’t have to read it, just delete it.” If the blog or website isn’t in alignment with what you’re writing, delete the pingback. There’s no reason to send an email voicing your concern. This will create negative energy and you don’t want that. Do you? However, if the pingbacks are in alignment with your blog and or websites, send an email “thanking” the blog owner for mentioning your blog posts. I receive many emails from blog/website owners “thanking me” for featuring links to their posts and websites on Of course, I send the owners emails that have the following words in then, “Your Welcome!”
