Link baiting is a new and progressive method of increasing link popularity.

What I have known about link baiting, it is an old trick..

Link bait is any content or feature, within a website, designed specifically to gain attention or encourage others to link to the website. (wikipedia). I think that it works great, something like viral content.

I don't know exactly when this trick was "invented". I heard about it a year ago. But what a difference the old or new, it works and this is important!

Great response, well one of my friend to me that this method is effective for her... That's why I think it depends on what kind of strategy of doing this method... And it also came to my mind that for some people it is an old, but not all for I have known that it is still effective.. Anyway, thanks for the share..

The term link bait, sometimes written as linkbait, refers to a placement on a website for the strict purpose of tempting other web pages to link to that website.

These are headlines designed specifically to encourage people to link, share or click. They are often purposely provocative, use loaded terminology (e.g. act, urgent, secret, discover), pose questions or are packed with compelling numbers.

linkbait headlines did cause a bump in traffic. Posts were shared more, and more people clicked through to do view posts. In short, linkbait worked as advertised, at least initially.

But if you use linkbait titles randomly. Like if you say "the boy who cried wolf" Readers would stop believing the headlines over time. It grows numb to the sensationalist titles.

You can see why people are attracted to linkbait. It does generate a lot of traffic (at least initially) in much the same way as a successful viral campaign does. However like a viral campaign, it doesn’t generate long term followers and certainly does little to increase your engagement and conversion levels.
