    Can I build a facebook page with 1000-2000 fake fans and share a link for a social signal? Can google tell that the fans are fake or the fact that none of them are re-sharing the link?

    Google should not be able discover which are the fake fans or which are the real ones.

    Would the fact that none of the people are re-sharing be a red flag for them?

    You would need large amounts of your fake fans to like and share your posted links to have any affect. How are you gonna do that?

    Can you imagine the degree of complexity it would take for an algorithm to decide whether or not an account was real? Really, no chance they will catch up with that.Do it; it will be seen as "popular".

    Fake accounts die quickly, they are less effective than real social signals and also they have a short-term prospects.
    So, i advise you to use real social signals.

    It doesn't matter, the only difference is the with of the network, fake accounts networks are usually closed and smaller.

    The realest social signals you could get automaticly i think are from social exchange sites. Although there a lot of bots there are some real people which mix it good for diversity of bots and people. Never had ban using those.
