      ^this but it's not just "other websites", but actual readers and internet users who want to share your content with their friends and talk about it. Could be a message forum, blog comments, facebook, twitter, or anything... it means your content went viral.

      That said, I learned a fool proof way to make content go viral =D

  • Writing something that is very confrontational, extreme for the sake of getting backlinks, perhaps a faked image involving a celebrity

    Or within a niche, writing something extremely harsh and provocative about a well known subject such as "8 reasons why ... is doomed to fail / sucks / is the worst ... under the sun"

    doesnt need to be viral. thats just one type of link bait. It pretty much is any content, program, tool, image ect that you make in order to get a link from another site. Like there could be a weight loss site that needs a animated image of someone loosing weight. The webmaster might not know how to do it but you can outsource it and give it to him for a link. Wala Linkbait.

    Something viral in nature, maybe a content, image or video in nature that gets the user's attention. This is a bit risky though, it is a hit or miss tactic.

    Link bait is any content or feature, within a website, designed specifically to gain attention or encourage others to link to the website. Matt Cutts defines link bait as anything "interesting enough to catch people's attention." Link bait can be an extremely powerful form of marketing as it is viral in nature. The term often has a negative or dismissive connotation. The content for link baiting would be a text, image, audio or video clip and it interesting enough to catch people’s attention.

    Link bait is something different content and refers to a placement on a website for the strict purpose of tempting other web pages to link to that website. Link baiting is a viral marketing form, and can be extremely powerful, as it draws traffic to a website without keyword searches or specific searches for that web page.

    Link bait is content on your site to which other sites link because they want to, not because you ask them to. Traditionally, links are hard to get, requiring you to sacrifice your first born child (and at least link back, which nullifies their value in some search engines.) But with link bait, you “bait” your content and sit back and wait. Of course, you can be a little proactive …
