Linkbait is essentially a piece of content placed on a web page - whether it's an article, blog post, picture, or any other section of cyberspace - that is designed for the specific intention of gathering links from as many different sources as possible.

Link baiting is a tool many bloggers and businesses use to increase the number of inbound links pointing to their website across the world wide web. In the long run, a good number of quality links with proper anchor text from various sources will have a positive and lasting impact on your search engine rankings for those terms.

Hello everybody

The quantity and quality of inbound links (incoming links or back links) are two of the many metrics used by a search engine ranking algorithm to rank a website. Link bait creation falls under the task of link building, and aims to increase the quantity of high-quality, relevant links to a website.

Thanks a lot
Smith Jones

In theory, link bait can be a rather easy concept to describe but in reality is can turn out to be complicated. The main idea behind link bait is to offer quality free services, web products and other tools to the online users and in return, get awarded with some packs of links. For example, many templates are powered with such links appearing at the footer areas of the pages.

A lot of websites which have reached high spots on search engines and have high PR scores on Google have been naturally optimized and promoted via such link baits. Of course today, launching a brand-new concept can be difficult because there is competition over the net in nearly all niches and markets and even link baits are not that easy to implement.

Link baiting is about writing content in a website, which arouses the interest and curiosity of others. It is such a content which other sites love to link because they feel that it should be linked and not because you are asking them to link it. Link bait helps SEO in many ways mainly by link building. Link bait helps to get more links to your website and it increases the chance of your website getting indexed by search engines.
