Being contentious. Being hilarious. Sailing close to the wind. Making unexpected connections. Surprising people. Stimulating heated debate. Revealing fresh ideas and shooting old assumptions down in flames. That’s the kind of thing link bait is all about. 

Here’s a couple of good examples of blog posts that caused a stir and, I imagine, won a few juicy back links too.

Link bait examples

First, 10 business lessons to learn from serial killers, a blog post that went a bit viral this week and is still being re-Tweeted. Why?

Second, a respected SEO blogger puts forward an extremely contentious point. The best thing about this one – apart from the intelligent argument – is that he gets crosser as the post goes on, culminating in an almighty rant! The response from one fellow SEO is equally intelligent and well thought through.

Here’s the original : White hat SEO is a joke.

Followed by the riposte, the importance of great content.

Originally from Middlesbrough, I lived in Brighton for many years before moving to North Devon. I’ve had a passion for words all my life and this is my twelfth year as a freelance writer. In my spare time I draw, paint, sculpt, carve wood and rock, garden, read, write poetry and enjoy long distance hiking. I sing and play the recorder. I collect modernist paintings, vintage rugs and mid-century German art pottery. I’m a member of The Poetry Society. And I am an experienced volunteer shepherd, a ‘Lookerer’.
