Clickbait Dog

You're all seen the ads off on the sidebar of a popular news site, with a eye-catching picture or headline. I'll admit the ones with the rescued puppies have always drawn me in, until I realized I had to scroll through incredibly S-L-O-W loading pages, one at a time, filled with more ads and usually give up before reaching the end of the story.  Many have pictures that aren't even in the stream (celebrities you didn't know had died - well because they hadn't).  Arghhhhh.

 Click Bait

Clickbait is a pejorative term describing web content that is aimed at generating online advertising revenue, especially at the expense of quality or accuracy, relying on sensationalist headlines or eye-catching thumbnail pictures to attract click-throughs and to encourage forwarding of the material over online social media.

But since I'm starting work really soon, I'm going to offer Abby Lab Clickbait - (no actual links just for grins on my lunch break). Cheers!

  1. BOL! I wouldn't mind a story going with that last one, Abby. Just saying.

  2. Yeah, I hate those click bait things, especially on my cell phone. It takes forever to see the whole story and then takes another eon to get back to where you started. But I would definitely get lured into the stories presented by Abby! LOL BOL!

  3. Bravo! Super clever and definitely far more enjoyable that those aggravating clickbait stories. Well done.

  4. Yeah, I hate those web sites, I rarely ever read the story. But I loved your blog post. Super clever.

  5. Those all had me grinning ear to ear. Thank you and she IS beauty.
