Did they help improve # Short answer? NO! I got really pissed off from this "causation equals correlation" mozbullshit, so I went out and tried it myself. I got a 5k Fiver blast, constisting of FB, G+,Twit, Pinterest, Linkedin, devided it up to 5 randomly chosen projects. 4/5 which had NOT received any linking or content optimisation in the past and let it blast. all sites are YEARS old, got some linking in the past. ammount: https://gyazo.com/e2964d153b2957e22465c9e5343b8b05 (equal for all sites) I additionally created some G+ / pinterest shares from youlikehits to innerpages of 2 other pages..- to random this up. also, nothing there at all.... amount: https://gyazo.com/98e41358797317b8ae2cf712de1a820e I waited 4 weeks to let them sink in. To compaire, before and after, I used GWT - it is easier to spot # improvements there. Sum it up, it did not do anything. As my time is money, I spare you the usual 1000 words article here. > Buying low quality high amount automated social signals did not help my projects. perhaps yours? I yet, even in this forum, have not found ANY case study, except @Leith blasting some signals to his PBN posts (which for me, seems, if done as only link, a nice idea), to prove ranking improvements. so, in the end, it is up to you, what you want to spend you $$$ on. I rather invest it into some posts from @lover @BlackBDO or @ksk71119 , ... or into an ahrefs account.. Q: I got asked, why I did not use any BHW here - cause I had some € in my fiver account - thats why. so for this study I did not "waste money".
