How to Disable Self-Pingbacks in WordPress

A pingback is basically an automated comment that gets created when another blog links to you. A self-pingback is created when you link to an article within your own blog. Pingbacks are essentially nothing more than spam and simply waste resources.

You can easily remove these in the perfmatters plugin by enabling the “Disable Self Pingbacks” option.
