    Link Bait is not something that is black hat SEO.

    It is something that is done so creatively well that, people would want to provide you with free links just because they like what they read/viewed.

    In other words, link bait is one of the best forms of Natural Link Building.

    Giving a good example here.

    You write a research paper on "why SEO will not die?" and publish it on your website.

    Anybody reading it or a SEO follower might use that paper in his blog post and will freely provide you a link to that research paper. You didnt have to pay for it.

    This will happen a lot over time. This is pure natural link building and in other words the research paper was a "link bait".

    Link bait refers to something on a site that encourages links from other sites. Link baiting is a viral and extremely powerful marketing technique, as it draws traffic to a site without any keyword searches or any specific searches for a particular web page. From a search engine point of view it’s a powerful tool which help a site that has less popular keywords than usual.

    I agree is the most powerful method to attracts links and traffic.

    But your content must be something very unique, otherwise it won't attract many links.

    Link Bait can take many forms. Essentially it is interesting, graphically striking or controversial content that people will feel a need to share/debate. For example, if you were a political columnist you could write a hit piece on a prominent politician. Even the opposition who disagreed with you would share your content, while arguing with your points. The effect, nevertheless would be more links to your article and thus, your site.
