    Well, In the past I bought some measly 2x "75" signals for 9€ for 2 sites.. sadly, I forgot to check any ranking improvements..

    In this case study, I will order signals, consisting of 2k FB likes, 800 linkedin, 100G+ and twitter from fiver.

    For this case study, I will link to 5 sites. 4/5 sites "haven't been touched" for months, or links created to them are +30 days ago. I dont include domainstatpages as a "real backlink"...

    if content optimisation (CO) was done <1 week i will mark this.

    keywords anylized only go to /
    medium KW = at least 3 authority sites and a mix of 1 wikipedia, and paid ads in SERPs.

    I will only signal to /
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 6

    If you focus on just signal it doesn't impact a little.

    I'm interested in your results.

    I use social signals because I believe (and it is not based on any real world evidence :) ) that social signals create the impression that any new links to the pages are warranted. Basically, I follow any PBN links with social signals in order to reduce dance.

    I've no idea whether this is true or not, so I will be interested in what you find out.

    social signals work best with web 2.0 sites. They work like a Gold mine specially if you are running a niche website :p ;)

    From my experience, any cheap social signals will not work. Haven't really heard of many people saying it has on effect on SERPs enough to warrant spending the extra price tag. I just do the standard social media posting but I'm curious to see if anything has changed.

    I tried to do social signals and all I got was traffic from them because those sharing went viral.
