    I'm talking about buying 2000 google+ votes. which probably are from fake accounts.

    Have anyone tried to buy google+ votes and seen an increase in google ranking?

    thanks :)

    It does. How much is up to debating though. But they've even said this themselves - good content will get plus 1d naturally -> it's just clever to give it a higher priority.

    anyone tried this and seen improvement in ranking? I'm talking from fake profiles.. We have many pages with good content and we have up to 15 votes on one of the pages.. but thats nothing compared to buying 500 votes for $5..

    if it works..

    Does anyone know if buying pluses have a negative effect on a site with adsense ? I mean any chances of getting banned for buying pluses?

    Why? Have you tried this without success? how many did you buy and for what kind of domain? Did you have many plusses before you bought the fake plusses?

    (Or have you no clue at all?)

    It does but if the plus coming from organically, lets say your site gets 100+ for 10days after 0+ thn it will not help. So better try to get some natural +

    This is the main reason for asking. It's not that I don't have $5 to spend. But it is rater that i don't trust this kind of things. People sell from 500 to 5000 google votes, if that works, then why not just use 10 x $5 and have all our sites on #1..

    I'm afraid that google see this votes as fake votes and decrease google ranking because of it..

    So if anyone have any example, that would be highly appreciated :)

    had a couple of good services provided me with +1 it certainly helps in rankings and making them stick

    only had about 100 or so with 60 ish sticking all from real users I was assured and the rankings have stuck well

    All I know is that one of my sites ranks above EMD domain in UK. The competitor's EMD is .co.uk, mine is .com and is not EMD. But I don't know what is the cause... better content, Google +1 or both.

    I have bought those 500 + but did not see any movement in my rankings, had been bought 1 month ago.
    so I would say it has no effect, but maybe in the future?

    You have to appear natural to the search engines, if you appear to be spamming or trying to manipulate the rankings in an unnatural way then you're doomed.
    So the short answer is yes, I haven't tried it myself but I would suggest spreading out those 2000 votes over several weeks.

    be careful with your sites +1 profile / business +1 profile, i made the mistake of setting mine up with a fake name and connecting all of my accounts using this fake persona ... i then launched a real sexy SEO campaign utilizing all of the various google accounts ... everything was going great!

    then google shut them all down until i could provide proof of ID, eg passport / drivers license, i suspect it was buying the +1 votes that brought the attention to my account

    Thanks guys.

    So i should go for real users and don't buy google votes?
    Are there any good/smart way of doing this?

    Any suggestions?

    Real users definetly will help your site rank but when buying google plus one votes it depends on how the person is actually doing.
    If the votes dont come from unique ips then its waste of buying.
    Buying google plus might give some kind of weightage to your site but not in the case of ranking.

    The movement in the SERP is just for the ppl who liked the page, for the others there is no change
