    Hello everyone,

    I started a facebook fanpage with a website before 3 months from now . I share cute pictures and stuff like this on the page and on the website I share viral stories and etc..
    I was all the way whitehat, I never used any blackhat technique . I spent almost 1.5K $ on facebook advertising and I have around 50K likes now, I have a good engagement rate I think I get for each post I share about 500-1000 likes (except links they get less likes ofc ).

    The dilemma I'm having is should I use blackhat techniques like clickjacking and all these stuff and risk my page or should I keep it whitehat .
    To be honest for this site I'm not hoping for short money and fast money . I want long term money and constant income for years , but should I continue to invest in the same rates .. ?

    I see some pages grow like sh*t in 1 months they get about 700K , and when I read the users comment on their walls I can see that they are using some blackhat stuff .. and ofc after they get viral they stop the blackhat and get whitey as snowhite ..

    EDIT : Till now I have made about only 100$ in adsense.

    I posted this in purpose on the "Making money" section and not on facebook section - I hope its okay. Because I needed some good advises..

    It's all about risk management - if you lost this page would that be a big loss for you? Consider the competition you see might have a solid game plan they've run before as well as good capital. They start 10 pages and spend 1-2k on each knowing that only 2 might make it to the point where they are big, making money and they turn to white hat.The more black hat you go the more you risk a ban from FB - even if the ROI is on average positive from the black hat techniques could you take the loss if you had bad luck?

    If you have a page with 50k real likes, clickjack is a waste of time and a big risk.

    Do this from a site where you have big traffic and nothing to loose.

    Clickjack on a fresh page on a fresh account. You will end up screwing yourself. You will destroy your targeted reach when the post hit likejacked people.

    @tomsoyer : I think it will be a big loss for me yea .. coz I have put much time in it and money too .. I'm not sure I can take it .

    @BigMoneyyy : this is the only site I have lol , but I can drive traffic at a low CPC rate from facebook ads .. , but that wouldn't be suspicious ? if I drive traffic to website2 and from website2 to likejack the visitors to my first website1 page ?

    @back2basics : I'm less afraid about the targeted reach because I will only likejack traffic that comes from facebook - and the main source of this traffic is Facebook Ads- with similar interests with my current page audience.

    "To be honest for this site I'm not hoping for short money and fast money . I want long term money and constant income for years " - that's the answer, so stand to your principles.

    There many Whitehat Ways to Viraly Grow Page
    Then there are Pure Blackhat Methods

    If you want to take the Long White Hat Route and you have long term Goals in Mind then Focus on Content instead of Blackhat Techniques

    When it comes to Facebook pages there is nothing better than a Page which you have grown with content

    Thanks guys for the advises . The problem is that I'm still advertising each and each day , and I'm not feeling that I'm making money with the website so that depresses me a bit and put some thoughts into my mind about going blackhat .

    @OP, you may want to read up a few FB courses and maybe a few marketing books.

    It seems to me you're targeting the wrong audience with the wrong site. Or least you need to work on both.

    On this kind of business only few can reach long term. There will always risk in every thing you do. If you think it's not worth it then stop if not earning well.
