    Question Trackbacks - Can they hurt your SEO


    Can track backs hurt your SEO ? Did some search and there don't seem to be any clear guideline for this. Some say it's good while some say it's bad.
    1/ Do Google give less prominence to track backs ? So even if they show up in my posts below comments they wont hurt my pages.
    2/ Can someone link to my blog posts, get the trackback and then remove the link ? Will the trackback still be showing in my blog post ? I hope not

    Thanks in Advance

    Bumping this thread hoping someone has an answer. As a precaution I disabled trackbacks for the moment.

    Too many can - you just need to make sure you have a diverse backlink profile.. Legit trackbacks are perfectly fine.

    I don't think so,
    trackback are redirected to website homepage, so i think there is not any problem with that.
