Nowadays, people will do just about anything to achieve getting your interest in their website to increase traffic to their website or maybe to get your attention on Instagram in order to get more Instagram followers. The only thing is that this will drive content creators into generating just about any crap to catch your attention without even caring if the content they have created has depth or whether it was just created for making their statistic better. Since nobody likes being fooled, here are some ways in which you can make the content you are creating interesting and real enough for your audience as well as some tips on avoiding clickbait.
Make sure you are really doing your research when you are generating your content
Your audience will definitely notice whether you put some thought into the content you created or not. Just think about it, you might get an awesome title for the content you created that really captivates your audience’s attention but, if the content was actually just generated as clickbait, your audience might successfully visit whatever link you wanted them to view in the first place but, I can guarantee, they will not stick around to view this content as they will identify it as clickbait right away. So, make sure you are putting some thought into the content you create so not only will you guarantee getting more visits to your website but also, users will stick around to check out the material you have shared with them.
Now, how do I identify clickbait content?
There is a saying that says: When something seems too good to be true, it probably is. Well, this saying applies to clickbait. Have you ever seen how there are some videos in YouTube that seem really interesting when you look at its thumbnail and when you actually view the video it doesn’t even have anything to do with the content that is being shared? Well let me tell you my friend, you have just been fooled by a user who just created clickbait content just so that he or she could get more views in their video. So, when you see content that seems too good to be true, it probably is clickbait.
