@slumgullion: Because of this comment or because the title wasn't "The reason Max Horner is fast will blow your mind"?

Guy Rides Bike Fast - Video
A while ago I made a comment calling for more to the point article titles. My wish came true. So satisfactory. Here is the comment for none that care to see: What is up with these advertisement-like article titles these days? Its almost on par with the shit you'd see on Facebook. It'd be so much better if things were still to the point: Riding a Sick Freeride Trail in Slovakia in Winter. When I'm too busy to click everything there is on Pinkbike, but I want to be entertained by something, the last thing I want to settle for is a press release of Rocky Mountain's Carbon Fatbike, but at least I know what I'm going to be getting. If it weren't for the fact that I couldn't sleep at 2am, I might have skipped this article altogether, and its one of the best I've seen in a while. The photos are amazing, the riding is sick and the video angles are superb. I'd hate to know how many people missed that opportunity because a title does a poor job to stick out in a crowd of bullshit. Maybe it'd be easier to stick out by trying to advertise the unique product that you have: winter freeride in Slovakia. Now to address the critics: No, I'm not being pedantic. Transaction costs are a major barrier that are considered in any sale. If a product is 10 bucks, with 50 dollar shipping, the transaction cost can be too large for the sale to take place. Similarly, if information is too hard to access (a bigger thing prior to the internet) then a sale can also have too high of a price associated with it (both monetary and time-investment) to be worthwhile. In this day and age of the internet, it is important to recognize the significance of transaction costs. Although there was an expectation that the internet would be a technology to make information easier to access, the fake articles and clickbait on the internet are making things head in the direction of being just as hard as they've always been. If you have an article that is actually worth reading, and you want an article to be read, you have to give the potential customer the smallest possible transaction cost as you can, otherwise they might just click something different. You don't want your article to compete with all of the fake shit in the world. Something this great doesn't need to be sold under a title for something it isn't.
