But, do you ever wonder is there any trick to get high quality backlink without doing anything else?
Yes, it is, and the trick called 'Link Baiting'.
So, what does link bait mean?
Link bait is nothing but a technique through which you inspire peoples in your niche to link back to your post via their blog, web page, social networking or social bookmarking site, articles in article directories or any other method that tells other about this post (thus giving you direct traffic) while improving your backlink count and hence search engine ranking.
Here you bait your content and wait for catch i.e. backlink from bloggers, web content creators etc. You are not requesting them to link back to you rather they do it theirselves.
You should think why should they do that, what are you providing? Is this as valuable to achieve back link? So the main thing you should work on is your content
