  4. Thanks for this list. I’ve been researching this topic a lot lately, and I’m always looking for more, and jumping from one blog to another. This is a great list, finally someone’s taken the time to post to a lot of the good stuff all in one place.

  5. wow, what a list. Copyblogger is certainly a great resource and has helped me a lot with writing titles. There’s no point in having great content is the title sucks.

  6. how about writing a list on sites that have articles on link bait… seems pretty valuable to me! lol… seriously thatnks for putting this together for me… now i just need to take a week off to read everything 🙁

  7. Hi Lyndon,
    Great informative blog on linkbait and thanks for sharing with everyone. I have bookmarked the link for further reference as useful information must be spread.

  8. Excellent! This is an awesome list still even now when the article was writte a while back. Would be helpful if there was some indication of ACRank or how ‘valuable’ the site is for link juice etc.
