Honest Talk About Link Bait

Filed under: web design — Tags: ,

If you have lived in a cave for the last couple of years and have never heard the term “Link Bait” you might think that it’s some black hat trick to fool the search engines into ranking your site higher. Well, it turns out that Link Bait is one of the best and natural ways to help your site get traffic, both through the search engines and with links from other sites.

The best way to get higher rankings for your site is to get one way links from other sites pointing to your site. I have written before about how search engines consider these links “votes” for your site and how one-way links that point to you without you pointing back (link exchange) are much more valuable. These kind of links bring you traffic through the search engines, but also traffic from the sites that are linking to you.

So what is the best way to get these links? You can get them yourself by writing and distributing articles, posting comments on blogs and forums with a link to your site, you can buy them (which is now frowned upon by Google) or you can get them naturally by having the kind of content on your site that people want to link to.

The last option is now called Link Bait and is the best and most valuable way to go. There is a good article called “What is Linkbait?” on a site called realestatehyperlinks.com that gives some good ideas for free. They are selling link baiting campaigns for $9,995.00 and up, but you can easily do it yourself for free. How good of a deal is that?
