Comment Embeds WordPress.com allows you and your readers to embed YouTube videos and tweets from Twitter directly into blog comments by simply adding a single URL into the comment text. Of course, if a reader embeds an inappropriate video or tweet on your blog, you are free to remove the link or delete the entire comment, just as you are with other comments . We may expand this functionality in the future to include embeds from other services. YouTube

Trackbacks Trackbacks are a way to notify legacy blog systems that you’ve linked to them. If you link other WordPress blogs they’ll be notified automatically using pingbacks , no other action necessary. Think of trackbacks as the equivalent of acknowledgements and references at the end of an academic paper or chapter in a text book.
Pingbacks A pingback is a type of comment that’s created when you link to another blog post where pingbacks are enabled. The best way to think about pingbacks is as remote comments: 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.
My Comments The Dashboard -> Comments I’ve Made page tracks comments you’ve made across WordPress.com so you can see when people reply to you. It will show your comment, one before yours, and replies after yours. The thread with the latest replies will be at top. Can I edit comments I left on someone else’s blog?
