I clicked on this thread because I knew it was click bait and I wanted to confirm it was click bait.

Confirmed Click Bait.
Being the click bait monitor sounds like fun. Who do you report all your findings to?

Yeah, it was a trick question. The correct answer is...it's perfect the way it is. So I'm putting you down as being correct.

You are indeed "MissSmartypants".

Everyone is going to click on it, even though many won't reply or admit it. But then you knew that.


You want to improve it? How about "Click This I Dare You"

Of course there's the ever popular "You won't believe what this random former child star looks like now!"

I couldn't help but be amused by the people who seemed angry with me because they clicked on it while completely ignoring the fact that I specifically told them not to click on it. There's just no winning with some people.

What makes good click bait?

- Adding a picture of bewbies

- Implying two people will beat on each other in the story

- Adding the words "you wouldn't believe it unless it was filmed."

- Adding, "You won't BELIEVE what happened next."

These--according to the clickbait links that appear on Webpages belonging to organizations that used to contain useful information. These days, very few do.

Anytime someone sends me a link and I see that crap on there, I don't bother with it. I kill the page. Not interested enough.

This is in Education and Media because it speaks to the little "tricks of the trade" that the media uses to draw our attention...

So, what was it exactly that compelled you to click on my thread title? And how could I have improved it's effectiveness?

I was curious of the warning. Power of suggestion.
Sirens usually cause alarm, msm posits what to fear today...

It was pretty effective.
It helps having a cool username too.

This morning I was googling the California wild fires to get the latest news and of course dozens of articles popped up each with similar article titles so I scrolled through them to decide which one to read...when I saw an article with basically the same article title as the rest but with the addition of the phrase "celebrities flee their homes" so no more thought was necessary, I clicked on that one. And it turned out that pretty much all of the articles included the celebrity information but their's weren't the ones that I clicked on first.

So, what was it exactly that compelled you to click on my thread title? And how could I have improved it's effectiveness?




I wanted to see if it would burn my eyes out.

Stefan Molyneux explains how to read/deconstruct a headline.







ETA; watch it, the title doesn't do the content justice.

Well actually he explains in a tedious roundabout way how to read/deconstruct a whole article. He's painstakingly explaining the obvious...pointless. But where's my manners...thanks for clicking and contributing.

I plead curiosity and a chance of reading something interesting on a slow day
- with the off-chance, however remote, that it wouldn't be about politics

(heads off to click on more links now

Yeah..too much politics. Too mainstream for us ATSers. Though that Q thing is fun. And Q is JFK Jr. being not dead. You gotta love it.

I have to admit I'm a sucker for "See what (random child star) looks like now!"
