Glossary

Blogring The section of a weblog that lists the sites that the blogger reads on a regular basis. This is usually located on the side of a blogger's frontpage, or on a separate page linked off of the frontpage. From http://www.microcontentnews.com/resources/glossary/blogrolling.htm

Permalink permalink (perma-lingk) n. a permanent marker or reference point to a certain document on the world wide web. Most commonly used for weblogs, news sites and newspapers. A permalink is denoted through the use of a symbol (pound sign, arrow, dot), date of content creation, the word permalink or image. From http://www.irelan.net/becoming/archives/000633.html

Pingback "...is a method for web authors to request notification when somebody links to one of their documents. Typically, web publishing software will automatically inform the relevent parties on behalf of the user, allowing for the possibility of automatically creating links to referring documents." http://scottwater.com/blog/archive/2003/02/16/2488.aspx

RSS "... stands for Rich Site Summary or alternatively Real Simple Syndication...The end user could then easily retire the full article, if they were interested, without having to travel to the site of the publisher, to see what was available...." From http://www.irrodl.org/rss.html - The are free apllications, like: rssreader to read this kind of data-. See also XML

Trackback "...it is a method of person A saying to person B, "This is something you may be interested in." To do that, person A sends a TrackBack ping to person B..." From http://www.movabletype.org/trackback/beginners/
