When I read one of your posts, I might consider commenting on that. I can do so on your blog, but I could also write in my own blog. In that case I have the option to trackback you and if your blog enables it, it displays a link to my blog. This way my article (a comment on your blog) is visible to both my viewers and yours. This will often be interesting if we both blog about the same topics, say gadgets or cooking.

Unfortunately it is often misused by spammers.
