    Linkbait Ideas...

    Let's try and brainstorm some specific ideas that people can implement as linkbait.

    From Wikipedia:
    The quantity and quality of inbound links are two of the many metrics used by a search engine ranking algorithm to rank a website. Link bait creation falls under the task of link building, and aims to increase the quantity of high-quality, relevant links to a website. Part of successful linkbaiting is devising a mini-PR campaign around the release of a link bait article so that bloggers and social media users are made aware and can help promote the piece in tandem. Social media traffic can generate a substantial amount of links to a single web page. Sustainable link bait is rooted in quality content.

    In other words, it's devising a sort of unique and interesting content, but unlike what you would normally post. It needs to be interesting enough for bloggers to want to link to it and for viewers to want to send the link to their friends, family and coworkers. I've seen it done with quizzes, interviews and things like that.

    So let's see if we can come up with some ideas for good linkbait...

    Interesting. Didint come up with this idea myself, but maybe it could be an inspiration:

    This guy made a small applet dispalying a blog's worth. Its based on Technorati API.


    Another idea is lists. Surfers love lists, but it should be something useful.

    Applications and downloads are common "linkbait"

    For content an original idea or some sort of news/information that hasn't gome mainstream are both great for linkbaiting.
