Question What are Ping Backs?

What are Ping-Backs for my blog entries? Is this just backlinks to the blog post?

It's a way to let other bloggers know that you are linking to them.
Like if have used their photo and want to let them know that you are listing their photo on your website.

Does it benefit the blog post at all? (The blog post that has the ping back?)

You can understand pingbacks better by reading this article on Wordpress.com: Comments Pingbacks.

You can choose to approve the pingback and it will appear in the comments section when using Wordpress.

2 things about pingbacks:
  1. They provide social proof and that can be good if the linking site is a quality site.
  2. They are a good way to catch people copying your articles when you have internal links within your content.

I generally checkout the pingback I get to verify the quality of the site before deciding to approve the pingback and as such give the site a link back.

Social Proof, like proof that the blog post is of good enough quality for other to want to link to it?

What happens when you decline it? Are you just declining the link being placed at the comments section of your blog entry? or are you declining the link within the other person's blog post able to work?

The ping back is not shown in your comments section. Has nothing to do with the site linking to you other than no reciprocating link.
