TinyURL has been in the game since 2002, and for good reason. It's a useful tool for when you're in a hurry and need to create a short link that will never expire. Just paste your long link into the box, customize the second half of the URL, if you want, and click Make TinyURL! You can then use that link indefinitely without fear that it will stop working.

Although you don't need an account to use TinyURL, if you sign up for one, you can see a history of all your shortened links.

You can also get analytics on clicks with premium accounts. Free users are limited to 1000 page views per month; paid plans start at $2 per month or $19.99 per year.

To summarize, go with TinyURL if you want convenience and anonymity when sharing links online, but don't need analytics or other tracking options. Free users can only use the service 1000 times per month before they're cut off, though. Free account holders can upgrade their usage limits for $19.99 per year. Premium account holders get more features like 1000 page views per month, 50 custom templates that allow them to monitor link clicks in real time via email, Amazon S3 integration for automated image hosting, and Twitter button support so your visitors can share your content on social media sites.

Not too shabby! I'm feeling pretty good about this article already at only 54 words long (not including code). That means I can probably fit this in my content marketing schedule without too much trouble.

This was a long post! Let's review with some guidelines about linkbait headlines (and also talk briefly about how to write good articles, which is the most important part of linkbaiting).

1. Know your topic inside and out

2. Make sure you can summarize it in 1 sentence

3 .Use at least 3 different keywords when writing about it

4. Include an idea for what kind of benefit someone might get from reading this article or visiting this site

5. Think about how people will search for whatever you're writing about - does that language appear often in searches? How can you use that in your own writing?

6. What sort of conclusion can you draw from your research about your topic that would be striking or counter-intuitive? Can you emphasize it in the headline to grab someone's attention [the earlier post on How Much Does a Relevant Headline Matter?] ?

7. Make sure this information is actually useful and interesting . Don't just linkbait for the sake of linking baiting! Linkbaiting itself should never be the point, but it should serve as an opportunity to get people interested in something else: great content. If you do link bait, make sure people will actually follow the links and read the articles and learn something new and interesting and worth sharing; otherwise what's even point?

8. Feel free to write about things not directly related to your own website (within reason)! Linkbaiting can happen on a more general level, where you don't actually link out to an outside source. For example:

9. Make sure you always diversify your links! Just because one link gets a ton of traffic doesn't mean the others will. Don't rely on any one way to get people onto your site - make sure there are several paths they can take from their search results page or social media post . In this way, it's almost like building another product for free [the earlier post on How Free SEO Can Benefit Your Business] . Free marketing is great, but only if it stands the test of time and brings in visitors that then keep coming back.

10. And lastly, make sure you pay attention to audience. What do they like? What might be interesting to them? How can you make your site or content more useful for them? Free marketing strategies are great but you still need to put some work into it!

Now that we've summarized the basics of linkbait writing , let's look at one final example (from Bonus Feature 2 ) and then talk about how this fits into our content marketing strategy : Free URL shortener TinyURL has been in the game since 2002, and for good reason.
