    Link Baiting = posting articles/widgets/other stuff with the intention of getting mentioned about it on other websites -> natural backlinking

    Whitehat stuff basically.

    Examples:
    Infographics, provides value to the user, people like it and can share the infographic on own blog
    You see the PR checkers offering a "show PR widget", this is linkbait to get a backlink
    More advanced linkbait is senting out press releases with a story you believe they would actually believe and write

    and much more :) Basicly stuff other people want to link on their blog, or you can trick people to get a link like the "PR show" thing from prcheckers.
