The challenge lies in marketing to the only professional crowd on earth which actually understands how the linkbaiting mind lock works, plugged-in SEM professionals. Writing worthy content (which is actually useful, funny, or hip) for other linkbaiters is the phunnest challenge ever and very humbling. The KPIs for investing time in Sphinn are reputation, satisfaction, and links.
You Can’t Fool a LinkBaiter
Oh no you can’t fool a linkbaiter, at least not for long. You can only fool yourself. Get a linkbaiter to click on fake-junk-content and you’ve converted a potential evangelist friend to a detractor. You can’t break promises made to linkbaiters with bogus hyperbolic headlines. The meat must be there.
This much we know. Sphinn’s “Hot Today” page rewards valuable content with tons of traffic resulting in high quality links and new friends.
