    Wouldn't have thought so but their is always the possibility if they have just been blasted on a new or quiet site.

    Going to De index is quite a drastic step are you sure there is nothing else.

    Do you mind adding some flesh to the bones?

    Was it velocity? Or flagged social accounts or what?

    Any time I fake signals I control the velocity which seems to pass

    It won't kill your site but might kill your pocket as those social signals are useless.
    If you want to show to people that you have a strong social presence then it's ok but don't expect fake followers to buy anything from you.

    Look mate, as far as I am aware, social signals are a temporary unit of measure any impact they have is temporary, as they roll on down the social hill with time. Hence why I do not believe any penalty would be as drastic as a de index.

    In the absence of bestcreators adding more than just 'yes' to the party this is where I stand.

    did you buy the domain? Was it aged or something, obviously you bought a domain.

    Just thinking maybe something else that was pointed at it might have a penalty.

    Purchasing social signals from fiver is almost like killing your site without pain.
    since many of them use bots to provide social signals and also
    the accounts which they use would be botted they wont last long.

    Based on my personal experience as well as Google's own official pronouncements, social signals don't really have any direct bearing on the SEO of your website.

    I know a lot of people would disagree with this, but based on just direct link impact, social signals really don't move the ball as far as your search ranking chances are concerned.

    What gets people confused is when a particular backlink source gets a lot social shares and then these people would then equate the high number of social shares with social signals somehow, someway improving your search rankings.

    There is a big difference between direct evidence and circumstantial evidence.

    That's the best analogy I could use.

    Social signals provide circumstantial evidence, but they themselves do not provide a direct benefit.

    Do you see my point here?

    Usually, when particular backlink sources get shared a lot, eventually, somehow down the chain, somebody would write a blog post and link to your target website.

    Do you see how this works?

    So don't get too excited if you just get a lot of Facebook shares and Facebook likes all of a sudden.

    Don't get excited if your websites suddenly become a Twitter star.

    If and unless somebody links to you, then there would be SEO consequences.

    So, based on that analysis, simply buying a huge amount of social signals from places like Fiverr, should not be enough to kill your website's chances for better search rankings.

    If it's a very new site and if you buy tons and tons of social signals, maybe. Otherwise it shouldn't be possible.
