Seriously marketers come up with one trick after the other and the unsuspecting users fall prey to it. I have been observing the irresistibly click-able articles on my time line for last couple weeks and spending some good time on sites like Viral Nova and Upworthy. I knew about optimizing content for clicks, however it is only after reading this Econsultancy report on Click Bait and few other I realized the elaborate plan that goes behind it
So what did I do ?
Why this image ? Because I liked it and I felt the apparent mismatch between the headline and the photo might make readers even more curious to click.The image has been taken from runawayjuno.com
Though most of the time I like to post quality content on my blog, I just thought of trying out the clickbait trick here on this post and see how many people actually clicks. Does clickbait work for marketing blogs ? Well, will know after a week! You can bookmark this post as I plan to update the post after a week and again after a month with the number of visits it received in all.
If you are feeling bad about reading this post ( feeling tricked?), consider that this is just an experiment and your participation is appreciated. Also, there’s plenty of good quality articles in this blog on different subjects like SEO, Adwords, Email Marketing, Social Media etc.
