    The idea of link baiting is to create a piece of content which is centered on a set demand from a specific audience. 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 technique of writing good quality contents and submitting it right sort of site in the right sort of field.

    Matt Cutts defines link bait as anything "interesting enough to catch people's attention." Link bait can be an extremely powerful form of marketing as it is viral in nature. The content for link baiting would be a text, image, audio or video clip and it interesting enough to catch the people’s attention.

    Link bait is content on your site to which other sites link because they want to, not because you ask them to.

    Link baiting applies to S.E.O. when the content is good enough to have people link to it naturally. These types of content may be funny videos, quality articles, shocking news etc...

    Link baiting, or link bait, is a technique used by Web content creators to encourage other Internet users to link to their site or page. It's generally considered part of SEO, or search engine optimization -- marketing strategies used to boost a website's prominence in search engines, such as Google. Link baiting is a legitimate way to promote content, although like any SEO technique, it is open to abuse.

    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.
