    Linkbaiting is the practice of crafting content that is designed to get other content producers to link to it. The purpose is increasing the number of inbound links to your content and thus improving its performance in search engine results.

    Examples of link bait, in this context, include breaking news, striking images, infographics, controversy, humor, educational material and applications. If your content has value for readers, they are likely to share the link.

    Linkbait is content that people link to from their own websites because of the content's high quality. The idea is that promoting your content will take less work if it sells itself.

    Link bait is one of the most powerful search engine optimization (SEO) techniques used by SEO professionals. Link bait is a striking piece of content on a website that people will like and link to. This creates a lot of inbound links, likes, retweets, pins, et cetera.
    Following are some examples of link baiting:
    1. Make a video, with links to your website.
    2. Focus on function, not flair.
    3. Get onto the "Most Viewed" page
    4. Title/thumbnail optimization
    5. Comments: Capitalize On Them.

  • Link bait is all about creating a compelling campaign that will inspire your viewers to share and link back to your references, sourcing or goodwill. It's not just writing. This is not just about providing information. It is a way to use your readers emotional sources and leverage them to attract them to you.

    Usually knowledge is useful in the Link baiting field. If you know a lot of other people don't have something, you can write it and publish it to attract people. But that's just part of it. How you put it out, how you express your knowledge in art requires talent. You have to make good bait.
