A backlink is called as a pingback in WordPress language. It can be any of the below:

  1. A backlink you receive from an external site to your content or 
  2. An internal link, you have created to your own posts.

In either case, you/owner of the blog/ admin needs to approve the pingback for the linking to become active.

You may use pingback to let other bloggers know that you've linked to their content on your site. If the other blogger or author's website supports pingbacks, they will receive information that you have linked to their content. They can then decide whether or not to include your link on their website.

Pingbacks on your site may or may not display an extract of material from the other person's blog, depending on how your WordPress theme is set.
