    I've several experiments for this, the quick answer is no.

    The thing is with SEO you will get people claiming all sorts, truth is most have not experimented at all, they just want to sound pro.

    Get some likes and see if it helps you out, at worst it does nothing. You certainly won't be losing rank because of this.

    Go for it :)

    the answer is yes and no.
    Yes it improves the authority and there is no direct relation of likes improving your PR.

    No, it would not improve google page rank. Page rank depends on many factors, and facebook likes has nothing to do with page rank.

    Simple equation is there is not such relationship between Facebook to improve your ranking

    Facebook does not improve your Google ranking of your site. However, Google+ has an impact on your ranking - not too much, but more than FB. so maybe you want to get started there

    No, It do not have any concern with ranking, It is only to increase the visibility of your posts.

    FB Likes generates social signals which helps google to calculate your popularity and hence helps rank up.

    No they don't, only post likes and post shares help ranking.

    There has been many tests regarding this and the fastest answer is "no" it does not improve the ranking. On the other hand Facebook likes are good for other reasons and Google might look more at them in the future.

    There is no evidence that social shares impact ranking or PageRank. However, a case can be made that the traffic you get from the increased social shares will in fact increase traffic to your site thus showing Google a better on page metrics i.e. bounce rate, time on site, and engagement. That will increase both.

    Facebook likes might be a good idea for generating some amount of traffic to your website but i don't think it will help to increase your page rank. Add unique / fresh content to your site regularly, link that to high authority sites, it will definitely improve your sites credibility which in turns leads to increase in Page rank.
