We’ve decided to give Akismet a new test: trackbacks. Walker blogs have been trackback-free since the launch, and this was generally considered to not be a loss since we were too new to generate many inbound links.
Today, however, a quick tour through the list of linking blogs proves otherwise: there are worthwhile posts out there talking about us! (awww) In fact, the whole reason I’m posting this here is so I can link to this post about the channel (and link to the original post in the ECP blog). In the future that will all happen automatically with this change.
Hopefully everything will go according to plan, but believe me I’ve got my finger on the trigger over here – any spam gets through, any lame posts about nothing and BAM, no more trackbacks…
In the meantime, read something you like here? Something you hate? Post about it on your blog with a link back to the original, and you’ll show up in the trackback list.
