Comics Make Great Link Bait

One of our clients posted a comic we created for them on their blog. While being funny and a nice 5 second distraction for your day, this comic also offers the potential for outside sites to link to them. In other words, this comic and comics in general make great link bait. You may wish to entertain this idea of comedy and SEO for your clients or maybe you already have. We would love to see other examples of comics and link building you have used or you have found being used. Add any good finds to the comments below.

We did something similar when we created the first ever monthly SEO Comic a few years ago.

Here is the Bad to the Bone comic from our client. (Love the comic name.) And here is the comic itself.



  1. Lol. Thanks for the great laugh from the Comic insert in the post. It does make for great link-bait and link-building opportunities.

    thanks for sharing. Keep up the great posts.

  2. I think comics are pretty interesting and it can really attract many. What other ways could you do to make a great link bait? Anyway thanks for sharing this! You’ve got a really great blog here.

  3. Comics are indeed a very effective link bait strategy. Comics strips can say and depict in a few words and expressions what sometimes can take an entire article to write about. When someone doesn’t have the time to read an entire article, that same person can always spare a minute or two to read a strip.

  4. That was funny. Continue doing comic in your post. It was interesting.

  5. I think we can all use laugh every now and then to break up the monotony of our daily work-work-work lives. I will have to find a way to make little funnies for my sites. Thanks for sharing this.
