You may be sick of Royal Baby news, some were sick before the first media pundit uttered that the “atmosphere was palpable”.
A linkbaiter is indifferent to the emotion (or tries to be) of such news events as they are dealers, not users. They see news events as opportunities to squeeze out a few more links, craft some killer headlines.
The linkbaiter goes where the conversation goes and yesterday we know where the conversation was. Even the haters were talking about it, talking about how much they hated it sure, but that still adds to the conversation and the heat of the story.
A healthy baby being born is good news, and lets not forget that 2,200 other babies were born yesterday. Although individually not such a media news event.
With that in mind lets look at some headlines around those who were not so happy yesterday.
Note: where I write “10” you can insert any number that works.

We could go on as tapping this mindset is easy. It’s important to note the negative aspect is in the minority. A scan of #RoyalBabyBoy on Twitter is overwhelmingly positive, not that it’s a scientific indicator.
What is interesting about going negative is that this group will be more eager to vent their spleen and so more likely to link. Tapping the negativity may seem cynical, but it is only reflecting a view prevalent in society.
The linkbaiter goes where the conversation is, it does not create something that is not already on someones mind.
But lets go positive, which I am sure will annoy any haters.
