The thing I absolutely hate the most.

This method is set up by what looks like a cool or innocent article, video, etc, but once the viewer clicks on it, the creator gets profit.

On YouTube, there are many of these YouTubers. They often use overused thumbnails such as boobs, or annoying things IN the thumbnails, such as circles or arrows. These are usually attractive to many viewers, and once they get their hands on that video, the creator gains money just from people clicking.

Some may also use misleading titles. Again, this is another way to lure viewers into a video that just has a misleading title put there on purpose. And again, this is another way the creator can get money.

There are some YouTubers I've come across, and as a very underrated YouTuber, I find this act selfish and a lazy way to get money. If there's a day I get popular, I would never use this stupid method to gain money; I'd be out of my house, earning money at a REAL job.
Clickbait is just the worst thing I've seen. And I hate how some people get away with it, like YouTubers do not get terminated for spam content.

An Article with a title designed to make the reader want to hear about it, they often will claim to improve your life in some way.
Examples of commonly found clickbait:
AMERICAN BILLIONAIRES WANT THIS VIDEO BANNED!
69 FOODS THAT ARE ACTUALLY BAD FOR YOU!
NEW GENIUS PILL LEGALIZED
THIS AMERICAN MOTHER MAKES $2000 DOLLARS A DAY FROM HOME.

A title or preview for a website, video, or other form of media that is misleading. It either doesn't have anything to do with the media or is providing false information.
An example of click bait is a title that says "Make hundreds of dollars easy!" but then links to an article promoting a window washing company. Or, a video title like "New gameplay of GAME!" with no actual gameplay in the video.

In a Sentence:
The website said that this article would tell me how to make a lot of money but it was just promoting a company, such a clickbait title.
