Hi Friends,

Link building is mainly three types One-way, Two-way & Three way. In all three link building technique you just take link from any website (of course relevant to your theme) with your chosen anchor text. It will give you high rank in SERPS for that particular anchor text.

Link Baiting is just called taking link in any form from anywhere e.g signature, forum commenting, blog posting. Here anchor text is not necessary simply you used your site's URL for taking link. You can put your URL in your signature, your comments it will catch people's attention and it become an another form of viral marketing.

Hi,
Look at it this way. All squares are rectangles but not all rectangles are squares. Link baiting is one tactic within the larger concept of "link building."

IMHO, "link baiting" is creating a piece of content (story, infographic, etc.) so juicy or interesting that it's just begging to get linked-to. One example would be to use some hyperbolic headline like "SEO is dead" to get readers all worked up and create discussion and sharing...which almost inevitably leads to links back to the site or story from other blogs or twitter feeds. In this case the story/headline was the "bait."

Hi Friends,

Link building - promoting your website by publishing/exchanging/buying links, link analysis, link disavowing. It is everything you can do with inbound links for making your website rank higher in search engines.


Link baiting - is a process of creating/publishing interesting texts - those, which will attract visitors. If it is catchy, readers will most probably visit links you include in the texts.
