Most of the online media outlets normally depend on the revenues generated from the clicks made by their viewers and due to presence of their outlets. To increase traffic onto their websites some people come with some misleading headlines as titles for their links. Such misleading headlines are known as Click-baits. These click-baits leave the user disappointed as the content of the address is very different from the headline or the title. The current work focuses on classification of YouTube titles into click-baits and non click-baits using tokenization and word embedding applied to SVM. Upon simulation of the algorithm we are able to increase the accuracy, compared to some of the other classification algorithms.
