WordPress sends pings to your own site when you link to other posts on your blog internally! This appears as a pingback on the post you have linked to, in the comments section. While it makes it easier to leave a trail of inter-related posts, most of us find this feature of WordPress quite absurd!
Unfortunately, the default WordPress install will automatically generate an internal pingback to that post each time you link internally. I’m sure some people like this feature, but I’ve never really cared for it on most types of WordPress blogs.
No one will ever need to respond to a trackback or a pingback, so I have even set my threaded comments options to exclude trackbacks and pingbacks from the “reply to” list. This means there will be no reply button against any trackback or pingback on my blog, in the comments.
For this WordPress has its own Plugin called No Self Pings. This Plugin prevents WordPress from sending Pings and Trackballs to the blog. This is easy to use.
No configuration is necessary, according to the plugin author. This is one of the plugins thatwe have been using since the inception of our blog without the slightest trouble through any kind of WordPress updates.
