    Hi Guys

    I'm hearing a lot about social signals and rankings


    What are they best kind?

    I don't think followers for example have a massive impact

    I would suggest diversifying out your social signals rather than mass quantities of Facebook & Twitter shares/likes/follows/retweets etc.
    Google +1s are very important, arguably one of the strongest social metrics. Be wary though, because it is their own service so they can track everything end to end. Fake + poor quality profiles won't have the same weight and added value to your campaign as would real profiles.

    Google is very active in removing fake +1s. I think they've incorporated some of their ingenious search tactics into their social platform. A few days ago I bought 700+ plus ones and it has since decreased to 11, all within a span of 3 days.

    As for diversifying, I don't think it matters. I buy social signals only for the most important social platforms (FB, twitter, Google Plus) and forget about the rest because social shares/signals don't move the needle on rankings as far as I know.

    what has was decreased to 11?


    700 is a lot, did you drip feed them or is that a normal amount to purchase for one website?

    That tends to be what happens when you buy bot work from Fiverr.

    Real or fake? I feel safer with 1,000 real social signals spread out realistically (look at normal facebook : twitter : g+ ratios) than 100,000 purchased signals.

    I use FB, Twitter and G+, I think we can consider Pinterest as Social as well.

    Nope, they weren't drip fed. They were blasted all at once. This is not the first time it's happened. The same is always the case whenever I buy Google +1s.

    I got them from Fiverr, but I wouldn't advise you to purchase from Fiverr. There are better social signals providers in the marketplace.

    Nothing beats natural of course. I buy social signals for my small affiliate niche sites that I will never spend time promoting on social networks (not that it would produce any results anyway). When it comes to promoting my authority sites, that's when natural social promotion comes in and is worth the time and effort.

    Social singals are good for diversity but their effect on rankings are minimal

    Check real case studies on this topic .

    Maybe Google plus have some effect but other social signals are waste of time believe me there are better ways to invest money
