How Effective are Trackbacks Today?

If you are not new to website promotion, backlinks building and Internet marketing, most likely you heard (or even used) of world’s first automated trackback solution Trackback Submitter. Used by a small group of webmasters for months, and released to the public in late 2006, it was the real sensation. Hundreds of pissed blog owners looked for methods to stop the software from automatically posting dozens of comments, trackbacks and pingbacks on their websites. (Un)fortunately, there was no 100% working solution to stop Trackback Submitter from doing its job (thanks to innovative trackbacks posting engine and integrated antispam plugins “killer”). The only working solution was disabling trackbacks completely (and also limiting blog functionality this way).
