Hello Everyone,
I am back after a long break.

Effective link building through link baiting.
There is a tactic out there embraced by bloggers but rarely used by typical websites. It is called Link Baiting.

Can someone throw more light on this?

As far as i can see link baiting is nothing more than writing interesting content that people want to link to.

Isn't it more like inflammatory content? Instead of writing "new Narnia movie has religious allegory" a link baiter might write "new Narnia movie -- religious indoctrination of innocent kids?"

In any case, it hardly works. I suppose if you were submitting a news article to digg or similar big sites, it might help your submission get attention. But I've tried this on my own small sites, and the populace just doesn't have a huge/diverse enough userbase to bring out the real reactionaries.

It's sort of a chicken-and-egg issue. You want to grow the site, so you try some inflammatory content, but you won't have enough people to react until you grow the site. And so on.

Link Baiting

1. Is merely link building with a twist: Rather than hunting out links, you are bringing the links to you through unique and popular site content.

2. Is any content or feature within a website that somehow baits viewers to place links to it from other websites.

Link bait is content on your site to which other sites link naturally because they want to, not because you ask them to. It creates more links to your site, which really do help you in the web promotion. you don't have to get on your knees and beg for the links because you will get many links naturally.

Check the following tips for link baiting.

1) Quality of link bait should be not just great but it should be good looking.(Good colors scheme).
2) A great “title” for your link baiting.(It has capacity to convert your visitors into costumers).
3) Add images to your link bait beside each paragraph.(Image will change your mind perceptions on it).
4) Post your link bait in blogs and forums.
5) Add social bookmarking websites links at the bottom of your link bait.
6) Launch your link baiting articles on social bookmarking sites.(Please choose an appropriate time when you think most of the visitors will be online at that time).
7) Promote your videos on videos sharing websites.

No its not a black hat technique
Linkbait is the best way to gain quality links as other users get your link because they simply found it useful, as this one naturally attracts backlinks


Matt Cutts define link bait as:
"interesting enough to catch people's attention"

"Post your link bait in blogs and forums."...

I don't think so that link bait is advisable at all...after all the rumors that came that it is some kind of a black hat...But it is 50/50 basis for me...I think you need to be careful of doing this, if you abuse it we can considered it as black hat...

"Post your link bait in blogs and forums."...

This is a good technique if your intension is also good. But it is considered as blackhat if you place a link bait to unrelated topic.

And also making topic as link bait that can hurt other people or destroy them...that makes your link bait an absolute blackhat...

Exactly right cEejay and some ppl are still creating fake stories
to use as "bait" for links.

Linkbait is just a new term for irresistible content.

If you want others to link to your site, put some tasty morsel
in front of them; they will bite into it and love it and link
to it.

fuking simple

Link baiting is a new way that seos' use to describe viral link building or viral marketing. It is something on your website that makes people link to your site.

Very linkable, high-quality content is one of the best ways to target the engines naturally and build links through the social networks, blogs and news sites.
