Linkbaiting is an increasingly popular method of enticing people to create links from other websites to your site to ultimately generate increased levels of traffic and improve your websites rankings in popular search engines. The way this is achieved is by uploading web content that people want to share with their family, friends or readers of their website. There are many ways of doing this, but that does not mean that it is easy.
If you take heed of the suggestions below, you are sure to create some successful linkbait for your website…
Humor is a global medium that almost everyone can appreciate and for that reason, it must be said that the most successful linkbaits are commonly based on humor. A humorous linkbait does not have to be a 2 minute stand-up routine or a birthday family video, if you can write your website or blog posts in a way that is lighthearted and contains some inoffensive jokes then you are sure to attract some backlinks.
One fantastic, but as yet not so popular way of creating links to your website or blog is to offer free downloadable or online software. Examples of this could include a currency converter for financial websites, pregnancy calculators for expecting mothers, a shopping list tool for food or shopping websites; anything that people will find useful and be compelled to pass on to their friends.
An alternative to this is to organize a prize draw or competition for users of your website. If you really want this method to work, you need to properly advertise the competition via cost effective means such as social networking websites.
If you enjoy keeping up with daily national and international news, then you could use this to your advantage and keep your website or blog constantly updated with news. Being one of the first websites to offer this information means that more people are likely to link to your site to show their friends and colleagues.
Another take on this is if you have specialist information to offer or experience in any particular field of study. New research is always popular and if you are the first to publish new information, it can create a web of backlinks within a very short space of time.
The methods listed above are the most commonly effective forms of linkbait, but there are others that are rising in popularity. Viral videos is one very successful form if used correctly; that means not hosting it on another video sharing website, but on your website or server, as long as it can handle that bandwidth!
