Why Linkbait Is Not The Evil Viper You Think It Is (And How To Use It To Gain Traffic)

Linkbait, while the name may sound bad or may even have some negative connotation in your mind, doesn’t have to be negative at all. It can and should be a productive aspect of your Content Marketing strategy.

Mike Allton‘s insight:

Is Linkbait Evil?

It’s unfortunate that the content marketing industry has coined the term “linkbait” because the word bait (and even links to an extent) have such bad connotation sometimes.

The fact is, linkbait, if done properly, can actually be a very good thing. Even Matt Cutts from Google agrees, and said that, “content can be both white-hat and yet still be wonderful “bait” for links.”

Thanks, and have a great weekend!
