Facebook Likes

I have heard a lot of talk about the “value” of buy Facebook likes, Real vs Fake.

As usual, most of what I hear is wrong so I decided to do this post to clear things up. Let me start by explaining the difference between a “real” like and a “fake” like. A so-called “real” like is a like which is earned the “right” way. This means that the like was made by a real person who found real value in your site, post or message. Page or other and decided to give you bravo by “liking” it.

Now let’s go to “fake” like; the fake as is a similar which is generated by any means other than what I described above.

There is a multitude of different ways to get a fake like, too many for this post, but here are a few:

1. Buy similar packages from Facebook smm panel; you can buy a few hundred to a few thousand. These likes are almost always generated with a bot (automated software package) that plays on Facebook’s security and mistakenly adds tens to thousands of likes over days or weeks. The good thing about this method is that it is cheap the bad point is that sometimes bots can be detected by Facebook security which can cause your Facebook page to shut down. Recently Facebook announced plans to increase detection; you can read a good article about it here.

2. Buy likes on a smm panels. This method involves buying “credits” or “tokens” from sites like These sites allow you to create an account with your Facebook profile and then other people get credits by liking your page or sharing etc. You pay between $ 5 and $ 100 to buy credits that you then “spend” when someone likes your page; you can buy several thousand credits for $ 10 to $ 25 normally. The good thing about these sites is that real people with real accounts like your page, not an automated script or bot … the downside is that the way those likes come to you is through a gateway page with a IP address set … which means it’s very easy for Facebook to tell that these have been purchased, and therefore not count them.

Now on to the big question … is there any value in “fake” likes?

The answer is a resounding yes

  • Confuses???
  • Let me explain.

Here are some of the benefits of false tastes:

1. Access to Facebook Analytics. Facebook only allows you to access the analytics part of your control panel AFTER you have reached 30 likes. By getting fake likes, you can access your data faster.

2. Access to the custom Facebook URL. Facebook allows you to have a custom url only after getting 25 likes … the custom url is very important from the start, it allows you to have Facebook / your keyword again, fake likes give you access to this feature very quickly.

3. No one wants to like a page that has no likes psychologically; people are MUCH more likely to click that like button if there are already several hundred or several thousand likes.

4. SEO value. Social signals are VERY important to SEO right now … some say up to 1/3 of the puzzle … whatever the actual number is, if you SEO you KNOW that things like followers, tastes, etc. play an important role in the ranking of your keywords on Google. If you can’t generate these social signals the “right” way, getting the wrong ones is better than nothing.
