    Link bait means create good and high quality content that is designed to get other content producers to link to it. It is a viral form driving traffic to your site.

    There are many different elements on web pages that can be considered link bait, as long as someone links to it. There is no specific definition of what exactly link bait has to be, as long as it is interesting enough to draw visitors and to be linked to other websites.

    Link bait is a good thing for SEO. Link baiting is a technique of writing good quality contents and submitting it right sort of site in the right sort of field.

    Matthewgayle's definition is a much clearer definition of what link bait is. Daniel.stock2013's definition, adding the phrase "submitting it (to the) right sort of site in the right sort of field" would apply more to creating links, rather than content encouraging someone to link to the page containing the content. "Link bait", as I understand it, would be content on the page itself that would encourage people to link to the page.
