    Simply put I've seen an idea for link bait to email websites about a best of blog post to attract links and social mentions.

    For example if you have a website about cooking and put together a post of top 10 cooking blogs to follow or something like that and link back to these sites it may be a way to get some links back.

    What do you think would be a good way to email a site owner about a post like this?

    Thanks

    You don't think it is a good trick for extra links if authority site(s) links back to you?

    My point isn't to rank with this but to add some extra links and authority.

    The people ("inbound marketing" clowns) still doing this are not getting any traction and they just look like noobs. This worked before everyone and their grandmother was doing it.

    I hear that. Well if people on here think it doesn't work then I may save myself the time. I am curious though what kind of tricks you think may work to get extra links, or do you think the main things are what is mostly needed - authority guest posts, pbns, etc.?

    Thanks
