Bloggers.SG cheatsheet

This one's for Ondine, who was quietly reading Harry Potter at the bar instead of paying attention to the actual convention proceedings.

How to find out who's linking to your blog

What's with trackbacks?

  • Trackbacks are a way of linking your blog post to a related one elsewhere in the blogosphere. E.g. I wrote my take on Bloggers.SG and submitted it as a trackback to Tomorrow.sg's page on blogger con reports, so that people who read the Tomorrow page will see that mine is one of the many posts blogged about the same topic. (Again, this depends on the writer of the blog post to manually submit the trackback to the originating URL.)
  • To get to the trackback URL of a particular blog post, just click on the link that's named, self-evidentially, "trackback" and follow the instructions thereafter.
  • Blogger users like us don't get trackback pages and, it is said, tend to use Haloscan's free trackback service.

How do I find blog posts about Bloggers.SG, so that I can find stalk find all the exciting blogs that you've been messaging me about?

There are several ways you can do this:

Thus endeth the lesson.

You should talk to Preetam sometime to see the amazing shite he is doing with blogs and flickr for educational purposes in China.
