I just spent the afternoon doing some trackback testing between BE and various blog providers. Here are my test results with embedded questions:
BE to BE - obviously this works
BE to WordPress - Wordpress receives a pingback but ends up in Akismet Spam folder. You have to publish the spam on WP for it to be displayed as a comment. Anybody know why this is?
WordPress to BE - pingback received ok by BE.
BE to TypePad - TypePad receives a trackback and classifies it as spam. You have to publish from the trackback spam folder for it to be displayed as a trackback.
TypePad to BE - TypePad only seems to work using manual trackbacks. Is there a URL that can be entered on the TypePad side for this to work?
BE to Blogger - Blogger relies on Blog Search so possibly after some time it would show up in Blogger as a backlink. I didn't wait to find out.
Blogger to BE - nada.
Any suggestions as to how to make trackbacks work without becoming spam and also how to get the TypePad to BE working?
I support my wife's blog using BlogEngine.NET and most of the blogs that she would like trackbacks working for are either TypePad or WordPress.
