    I'm not for sure about this, but...

    I think it is where you put something on a web site that can be downloaded or maybe even listented to, so that people will be enticed to link to it. Thus creating a viral effect on backlinking marketing. So if you had a mp3 of how to make a million dollars, and allowed people to access it for free, a lot of other marketers might want to provide a link to it on their site. This creates back links for your site that is hosting the file.

    But I don't know... that is just my guess. I would kind of like to know myself.

    Link baiting is effectively a link building tactic. The goal is usually to obtain as many relevant inbound links to your site as possible. Although link baiting is somewhat of a gray area, this is often achieved by presenting and marketing your site in a manner that captures or “baits” someone’s attention enough that they are motivated to link to it.

    A few examples of link baiting would be:

    Informational- Provide content or tools a reader will find useful. People don’t care what you are selling unless it is somehow relevant or beneficial to them.

    • Content will usually present a means of eliciting an emotional response such as that derived through humor, anger, etc. Tell a good joke. :)
    • Tools will typically fill a niche market that provides either new or “superior” functionality to any utility that is currently available.

    News - Become your own original news service. Challenge today’s media with interesting substantiated facts in a refreshingly enticing manner.

    Attacks – Although ad hominem attacks tend to be bad form and could potentially get you sued, they will definitely garner your site a bit of attention. It may be a tad more useful to attack an idea. ;)

    Additional information may be found in the DP archives:

    Hope this helps-

    Alex.

    just a silly buzzword that refers to aggressive, infectious link marketing.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Link_bait#Link_bait

    Like Bum Marketing, these b-words are just simply bxxxsxxt words coined to crystallise ideas that are really nothing new and lure gullible laymen to buy their ebooks and whatever obvious stuff they churn out!:)
