WordPress as a lovely software for blogging supports pingbacks, As you can read in Worpress support page,

  • Person A posts something on his blog.
  • Person B posts on her own blog, linking to Person A’s post. This automatically sends a pingback to Person A when both have pingback enabled blogs.
