UpTake has recently launched a new program called “Travel Gems” which showcases bloggers’ posts throughout our site. Every time a post links to us, we “hear” it via the brilliant pingback/trackback technology. The issue coming up during the first stages of this program is that pingbacks are not being heard. So, to avoid this issue in the future, we have created a step-by-step breakdown showing how to manually allow pingbacks/trackbacks.
