Link Bait

Link baiting (or linkbaiting) is the latest buzz word in the SEO world and has come to be the preferred way to natural link building.

It means to create something that naturally attract backlinks for your web page by getting people to talk about it, discussing it on forums, blogging about i, posting it on del.icio.us/Furl/Digg/Shoutwire and linking to it from their sites. It also attracts a lot of visitors.

Here is a list of ideas:

    I disagree, it might be hard to do them all at once and maintain them, but one at a time real easy. write articles, and example write an article about this article. It’s real simple to do, just use your imagination.

  • http://www.shaantrading.com Teakita

    I am a beginner in SEO. Link biat is mystical and here is one example:try to search”Teak outdoor furniture” in the google, you will see on top is discount furniture which gets quite lot of links from a visitor counter which is used by some small websites and not ever related to this field. He just beats all his competitors. This is amazing and I wonder if search engines really do care about the relevacy of one side links!!!!!

  • http://wimax.eu/ wimax

    Teakita: I think site can be banned for such tricks in SEs.

  • http://www.jimwestergren.com/about-me-jim-westergren/ Jim Westergren

    I think site can be banned for such tricks in SEs.

    Well, unfortunately not.
    Links are amazing in Google, just search for:

    free stats
    web tracker
    hit counter
    web stats
    invisible stats

    And you see the same site holding the number 1 across the board. This was done by the power of links, same as discount-teak-furniture.com but on a much higher level.

    No, see again the definition of link bait.

  • http://www.netfreez.com/catalog/Bluetooth_Wireless_Headsets-118-1.html Headset Gadgets

    Link baiting is not really considered a new technology or a new way to approach a large pool of visitors, it has been done before. On a previous edition of our website, we have posted columns of “Latest News” featuring reviews of cellular gadgets that only a limited number of websites would review or offering features on your website such as product review. Information within product reviews is absorbed by search engine bots as useful data and therefore your probability of being labeled as a content rich website would be high despite the fact that you are in the business of selling goods, not information.

    Link baiting would appear to be a perfect counter-point to longtailing. With longtailing, you would choose topics where you could pick up easy and highly qualified search traffic merely by virtue of the title. Then, if the contents of the page satisfied the link baiting criteria, you have a double whammy effect working in your favor. The original hit could occur as a result of a happenstance Google hit, and a link garnered, and an accelerator effect could kick in.

    I think it is not so much what you do, but rather how much of what you do that is important. Volume seems to count a lot. I have read about Google leaning to themes and LSI, but I stll feel that a large number of back links will still do the trick.

    Being the FIRST is great but not easy. The link bait ‘Be the first to write the latest news in your niche’ can work even if you’re not the first. Sign up to Google Alerts to get the latest info on your niche and post re-written versions on your blog, website or article as quickly as you can.

    SE’s tend to index any ‘News’ or Article’ sections of your site frequently if you post regularly.

    Unfortunatlly, this ways takes effect mostly in popular subjects. Then you deal with something very unpopular, rare and highly tailored, I guess, there is nothing to do to get volume of backlinks.

    Question regarding link baiting. Videos like “Charlie Bit Me” and other huge youtube phenomenons have amassed huge amounts of traffic.

    By the literal definition of link baiting, these videos pass the test.

    But what I’m not understanding is Where are they ultimately pointing the traffic? And who is ultimately benefitting from these millions and millions of views the videos are getting?

    Thanks! Look forward to hearing your thoughts.

    Thought: It would be an awesome service to offer customized link baiting tools that are literally turn-key. You just log onto a website, submit your niche, and then pay for the link bait that you can embed on your own site.

    I like the idea of making a tool that others can put on their sites and links back to you.

    I got this idea a few years ago after looking at the Statcounter Website. Just think about how many people run Statcounter on their sites with each page that it is placed on linking back to the Statcounter website.

    Statcounter has a PR 9 with 24 million backlinks to it.

    The only problem is that I haven’t figured out what kind of tool to build. :-)

    I was looking at a YouTube video this morning that had received alot of attention (13,000,000 views), and noted that there were a substantial number of people who had created short, stupid clones or imitations with the same title and I’m wondering whether they do this in the hopes of generating tag along views and receiving YouTube ad revenues or whether there’s a way to get these youtube views to translate into backlinks. I’ve got to look further at it.

    Jim,

    These are all great ideas, but I have a question for you. Do you know of any affordable (and creative) people and/or companies that these type of projects can be outsourced to? I’d love to get some things like this going.
