Homepage Pingbacks

I’ve noticed something peculiar happening lately. It’s not just me, either. Other’s have expressed the same complaint to me in the past. I don’t receive a notification of all the pingbacks other bloggers post. It seems to be only links to my homepage that I’m not notified about. I did a test myself during my Month in Review post. I linked to five posts and my homepage. I should have received six notices but I only got five. The link to my homepage never came.

I have found that others gave me a shout out in a post. However, I only noticed it because I was reading their blog directly, not because of a pingback.

Anyone else have this problem and/or understand it? Linking directly to a post provides a notification but linking to a homepage provides nothing.
