I got a notification that I got a pingback today as a comment on one of my blog posts. I'm not even sure what this is or If it is good or bad, can anyone tell me if I should keep it or delete it? Thanks a lot

I would not be too quick to jump on disavowing your links, but if they are done in a way that appears they are just trying to get a link back from you (lots of people post their pingbacks within their comments by default), then I would remove it from Google.

There is a post here at WA on how to use the Disavow tool at Google for pingbacks, but in the end I wouldn't waste too much time on this as it is a one way link and Google isn't going to punish you for this unless they feel you are gaming the system.

Read this post by Ty on the disavow tool.

I wouldn't worry too much about it. It just means somebody linked to your site. You may however, want to check who is linking and make sure it's a quality site (high page rank, etc.). If they are not high quality it can actually hurt your ranking. If this is the case, you should ask them to remove the link. Google also gives webmasters the ability to ignore links via its disavow tool.
