Long Lists - Types of Linkbait

As we start to get close to the end on our coverage of the different ways to linkbait an article.  One great way to attract back links is to go out and create a long list.  I'm not talking about the top 5 or the top 10, I'm talking about the top 25 or top 50 or top 100.

Plus, its not good enough just to list a bunch of hyperlinks to other sites.  These lists need descriptions under each item.  Lots of content per item, lots of detail per bullet.

The list needs to be long enough such that it becomes hard to imagine copying the whole thing by someone that might visit, so they do the natural thing and just link to it or maybe even bookmark it as a ' good resource! '

If you have done this or found good examples of Resource Hooks, Please drop us a comment with a hyperlink to the linkbait example.  (please just one hyperlink per comment so that we can identify and reject spammy comments)

This is the second to last topic on the subject of linkbait as baited by Yellow House on Linkbait.  We have just one more to go!
