An example of clickbait from the channel Screen Rant

Clickbait videos are a type of video that has content whose main purpose is to attract attention and encourage visitors to click on a link to a particular web page. They often include red circles and arrows.

Why They Suck

  1. They're misleading.
  2. They violate YouTube's Terms of Service.
  3. Some users make a lot of them, the most infamous example being Jake Paul, and Durv. And even Ruby Rube and KIDS Global AKA Ruckerzz.
