An eyecatching link on a website which encourages people to read on. It is often paid for by the advertiser ("Paid" click bait) or generates income based on the number of clicks.
This is not news, really. It’s click bait, the stuff pageviews are made of.

OR

This is the worst article I've ever read, clearly from a massive Microsoft hater or paid by Apple/Google. It's just paid FUD clickbait, wouldn't expect any better of news.com.au. Source: Whirlpool Forum 21 Oct 2012.

When a news article or link has a provocative title in order to get you to click on it.
Even though it's actually total sensationalism bullshit.
TITLE
'President Obama loves KKK!?'

"Hey what the fuck, Deshaun you see this shit?"
"Ahah man, that shit's just click-bait!"
*click*
"Obama loves the Krispey Kreme's new special item, 'Krispey Glazed Bear Claws.'"

(noun, pejorative) A seemingly innocent posting on social media that contains a link to more content, but whose true goal is to trick the viewer into clicking on the link so that the writer can collect view stats -- usually for monetary or for narcissistic purposes.
That tweet on how to get girls/guys was just clickbait -- it linked to some book on Amazon.

That posting in my stream titled "What This Person Did For That Will AMAZE You!" was just clickbait and linked to a paid advertisement video.
