What is clickbait?
We can say clickbait is the misleading titles, images, videos, and likewise we use to direct users to a certain page we want.Many news sites and youtube channels use the method of clickbait, but some of them go so far while doing so. We do see misleading titles on videos and click them, and see that the content has nothing to do with the title and close the video before 2 minutes.It’s a reality that if you have a website or youtube channel, you should learn to use the method of clickbait efficiently.
How to make clickbait?
There is one main point while clickbaiting; Let’s say you have a youtube video and you put a misleading title to the video while the video had little or no relevance to the title. The viewer will see this and leave the video in 2 minutes, and this will worsen your statistics.This example applies not only to youtube channels, but also to blogs. Let’s inspect the clickbait method with another example.Let’s assume that there is an article about Linux operating systems on a blog. The title can be ‘Linux operating systems’, but with a title this dull, most of the users will not be slightly interested in the post let alone clicking it. You’ll need to decorate the title a little.
- Operating systems hackers use!
- Fastest operating systems of the world!
- Operating systems that don’t need antiviruses!
But don’t mislead too much while making the title. User will leave your site after 10 seconds if you do so. Think thoroughly about the title.
