Buying or using anything fake to influence any outcome is dangerous......

You might "get away with it" today....but you can rest assured that the
site you are trying to scam will eventually discover the fraud and take some action....

You probably will not like it.....IMHO...))

I suspect social likes are more sensitive to discovery via normal social graphs.

HI
not much, if the likes are from different ids and the IP address then it not going to harm much, but for the safe side its better to go real .

Buying fake likes is probably a bad idea and I'm glad you've decided not to go through with it.

There are ways to "buy" real likes though, ways that aren't against the ToU for Facebook and won't get you in trouble. Companies offer free samples or coupons for everyone who likes a page, or enter people in a raffle for a prize for liking a status update. This gets you real people to like your page for a low cost and without the risk of the fake likes.

What are you planning to achieve from fake likes? If the likes are fakes, obviously your updates are not going to the amount of likes you have for your fan page. Other than certain branding, it doesn't have any sort of profit IMHO

You need to have some likes before you buy some. Make sure you page is a couple a weeks old and don't buy more then 300 at once. You should be fine.

Any SEO at all is technically trying to affect serps.

It's best to join a few blogging groups that sometimes sponsor giveaways. This can build your Likes pool rather quickly. But then comes the work of keeping those LIKERS around for the content you intend to post into their streams.

lolwut?

And just to be on topic unlike some people. Buying "likes" is strictly forbidden in Facebook's terms of use. Also, it's pointless to pay for untargeted likes that won't bring in business. Just put in the hard work and get natural likes, you'll see better results in the long run.

Actually it's not a recommended method or a legit way to increase/get likes. And nothing will happen except increase in the number of likes that the page had. But, legit way is the best way to increase social reputation to the page.

Buying most things in SEO is either totaly fine or a grey area. For example buying back links is a grey area in many peoples eyes, but done for the right reasons you are only really paying for advertising space. However, when it comes to things like buying YouTube views and Twitter followers and fake Likes, then this is freud. You are representing something in a better light than it really is and trying to benefit from it. I would steer very clear..

Why would buy fake likes?

You do not have any benefit from them, you just throwing your money.

Depends what you mean by "fake" likes. If you are "bribing" real people into liking your page, then go ahead. If there is anything worth something on your page, then some of their friends might like it and it might snowball. If you mean setting up dummy profiles yourself and using them to "like" that page, that would be retarded, because it would be pointless.

I would not also recommend buying fake facebook likes as they are your real targeted visitors. Most of them are not really interested on your fan page. It would be better to get few fan page likes from people that are very much interested on your updates rather than having thousand of fan page likes from people that just ignore your updates.
