Link baiting (or linkbaiting) has become one of the most preferred ways to natural link building. This means you create something that naturally attracts links by making people to talk about it. It can be anything like
- An interesting and informative article on some topic
- Contests. Users get things for free for participating.
- News. Be the first in cracking / discussing something on internet.
- Support something controversial. This can lead to lot of people linking to your content saying something negative.
- Make a tool or plug-in that others can use and also puts a link to your site.
Many of us knowingly or unknowingly do link baiting as a promotion tip for our website but from now on do it knowingly.
