Joomla K2 TrackBack Plugin makes it easy to send track backs directly from your K2 items.
Trackback is a way to let blog systems and websites know that you have linked to them. Trackbacks is an excellent way to build links to your own site, since many websites will show an excerpt and a link back to your website.
This plugin will add the trackback function directly beneath the content editor, where you create your content.
The plugin is extremely easy to use. Just enter the trackback adress you want to send trackback to. You can also enter multiple adresses by separating them with spaces.
Since this is a K2 plugin for Joomla, The extension K2 2.5+ is required to run this plugin.
This plugin adds blog pingback functionality to Joomla, just like the ones you find in Wordpress.
A Ping is a message is used to let other people know that you have published new content on your site. The ping message is sent to different Update Servers of your choice, which in turn processes your ping to make your new post show up in different blog listings like Technorati and Google Blogs for example.
So why would you want to ping? One word: Traffic!
The more you let everyone know you have new posts, the more traffic to your site you'll expect. A ping also notifies different search engines that your site has updated.
The BlogPing Plugin is configured with Ping-o-matic by default, but you can add as many Update Services as you wish. The best thing about Ping-o-matic is that it automatically forwards your ping to 11 other Update Services and search engines.
The plugin is triggered everytime your page gets visited, to see if theres any new posts made since the last ping. If it finds new content, a ping is sent to the Update Services you've specified. You can just sit back and relax while the plugin automatically promotes your website.
BlogPing is installed like any other extension. It consists of one simple plugin that makes the job for you. One installation file for all Joomla versions (J1.5-J1.7) makes it dead simple to install.
The BlogPing is configured to work out of the box, after you've enabled the plugin. You could still tweak the settings of your choice:
* Specify which categories to ping. Some or all?
* Enter a list of Update Services to use.
* Settings to ping on new posts or new and updated posts
* Enable or disable display of messages in backend.
* Works on Joomla 1.5+
* PHP 5 required
If you don't know what ping is, then you really missed something. This is something that almost every blogging plattform uses. A ping i basically a shout out to an update server, that your site has fresh content. The updateserver will then list your article automatically to it's blogpost listings.
Hopefully your ping will get You tons of new visitors, that you otherwise never would have reached.More
