G’day to you, my friend! It would seem that sometimes I miss out on posts that have been linked back to my WordPress blog, and well, I just hate missing out on reading those posts. I especially hate not being able to thank the person who took the time to link back to my blog!
Here’s the thing about a pingback notification: they don’t work if you use the main WordPress blog URL (e.g. http://www.rachaelritchey.com) of the blogger you are wanting to link back to.
So to correct this issue, simply link back to a sub-page or specific post on the other blogger’s site and voila! (e.g. https://sfarnell.wordpress.com/about/)
Most bloggers accept pingbacks, so this simple fix will save you the trouble of wondering why that blogger you connected your post to didn’t respond to your kind gesture. 🙂
