Purpose

This trackback ping constructor allows you to create a trackback ping, i.e. notify a blog that you are referencing a certain blog post from your own blog.

Trackback data

Cited blog

Trackback URL

Citing blog

Blog Name
Title of post
Excerpt
Blog post URL
Result

Parameters

You can specify the trackback parameters by typing them in here or by giving them as URL parameters: trackback.asp?url=...

Blogger template

The typical way to use it in Blogger is to insert the following into your template:
<a href="http://web.forret.com/tools/trackback.asp?title=<$BlogItemTitle$>&blog_name=<$BlogTitle$>">trackback</a>
somewhere on each post page. This will allow you to easily send trackbacks from your Blogger blog to your sources (if they do support trackbacks, of course)

Do you like these tools and you want to do something back? I have an Amazon wishlist here!
