Have you clicked on a link in youtube to watch a video to find that it was totally unrelated to what the title say it was? So, I assume linkbaiting (or should I say click baiting) works on youtube as well? I have been tricked myself a couple of times, and although not all of them are bad, some of them are totally out of the topic.
Why do people do this?
2. To promote their own site by posting a link in the video or in the video description section.
3. To mislead people
4. Some users do this just to gain more views and popularity.
5. Heard that youtube has revenue sharing, so the more original video you post, the more chance you can earn a revenue share. But doubt it’s released to public yet.
6. Some people think that they are funny, when they are not!
What do you think?
