Link-baiting is . . . kind of hard to explain. But I know how it works. You place something on your web-site that encourages someone to either link to it or have someone click on the link in which case the bait is buried within the link. It's one of those sure-fire ways to get many free backlinks and lots of traffic from the sites which link to you.

One of the link-baiting strategies is to create a very informative and comprehensive list that quite obviously should be topically relevant to your niche. Then you sit back and wait for the traffic to come your way.

Have any of you tried link-baiting. If you have, what strategy did you use?
