Link Baiting
101

• Simply put, Link Baiting is the art of creating
content that people are interested in checking out
and ultimately sharing within their social circles. It
can be an article, a picture, video or downloadable
software. Making something interesting enough to
actually get people to share it is the hard part. It is
also the most rewarding type of link. Keep in mind
that creating “link bait” requires a little creativity.

Some great examples of
content for link-baiting:
• How-to guides – people use the internet
to do a number of things. One of those
things is to research solutions to their
problems. Well written/produced
how-to-guides can be a great piece of
content that users are likely to share. It
could be a simple article, an infographic
or a video.

• An interview or news article – if you have articles
or videos from interviews about a particular topic
or with someone in your industry with some clout,
people could be interested in it, republish to their
blog and provide a link back to the original content
on your website

• Lists – Creating lists such as “Top Ten Tips” for a
given topic are great forms of content. They are
some of the most passed around content among
internet users via social media, blogs or email.
