    Link bait, as i understand it, is where you provide an item, ie video, article etc which "baits" users to link to you. Eg you are giving them nice content for their site and you get a link back.

    It's where you catch the attention of the readed, and you "redirect" he or she to another thread or another website.
    It's a very powerful and viral promotion tool. Handle it with care

    Re: What is link bait?

    link bait is very common whenn it comes to blogs...
    this is when someone will copy some of your post and use it as an update for his blog but of course at the end of his post there is a post back to where he got it and that's to your blog...

    Re: What is link bait?

    Link bait is content on your site to which other sites link because they want to, not because you ask them to.

    It is about your content. Example of site that has plenty of link bait is the wikipedia.

    Link bait is any content or feature within a website that somehow baits viewers to place links to it from other websites. Attempts to create link bait are frequently employed in the overall task of search engine optimization. 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.

    I think link baiting is dropping a link for some offer or free item just to get the person onto the website, like a decoy of sorts.

    It's a form of link building, you offer something in exchange of linking to your site. For example, articles of interest for a subject. Images, videos, newsletters, etc. Banner exchange, link exchange, etc.

    You must be writing interesting/intriguing content so that others are going to link into your site.

    Re: What is link bait?

    Link baiting is a notable SEO concept; the underlying idea with this concept is to build a completely unique concept that would be circulated in significantly trafficked media. If your published content is exceptional, many web visitors will be attracted to it, and a good number of sites will insert links to your content in their own websites. This way, you will generate organic one-way link back to your site.
