    I?m new to this whole SEO thing, and like many of you, I recently installed Follow Liker (FL) for Twitter.

    I?m a beginner and here are my observations. I hope this post can help other newbies starting their FL journey.

    (sorry for my average english)

    - - - - - - - - -

    #1. Take it slow. Don?t expect incredible results right from the start. At first, FL isn?t easy to understand, so it?ll definitely take some time to set up properly. It?s okay. (I expected 100 new followers on my first day and was really disappointed.)

    #2 Your niche is unique. What works for someone may not work for you.

    #3. Observe and optimize. Like an investigator, you need to use your deduction skills to understand why some settings didn?t work. Stop crying and find the reason.

    #4. Post great content. FL is a good tool, but it can?t really help you if your content is bad and not engaging. If you have a hard time growing your follower base, maybe your content is really bad?

    #5. If something stops working, there's a reason. It is possible that some seemingly great settings stop working after a of couple days. Oh, why? Don?t come crying on this forum and see #3.

    No, Follow Liker didn?t stop working suddenly. Maybe your super precise search pool was great at first and simply emptied itself gradually.

    #4 Test your search strings on Twitter before imputing them in FL. It?s way easier to fine-tune this way.

    #5 Automating favorites is great, but from time to time you should review what your account favourited. You may realize that, oops, you?re actually favouriting irrelevant or offensive tweets. Or maybe you end up favouriting the exact same user 10 times a day (and it?s a waste of time if they?re already following you).

    #6 Don?t hesitate to manually blacklist people. Example: I?m trying to reach a specific niche industry, and I realized that some other users spam this niche with job offers. Since that not relevant for me, I decided to blacklist them.

    #7 Be clever. Use your competitors strengths to reach their followers. If people like their stuff, they will like yours. But you need to find a non-spammy way to reach them. Yes, you can copy their followers? but trust me, there are other ways!

    #8 Following to follower ratio is a bit tricky to implement at first. I haven?t mastered this option yet, but I realize that I don?t really need it right now. It?s easy to have a great ratio without having to rely on this option.

    #9 Review your Follow Liker logs frequently. Look for errors and fix them.

    I will update this post from time to time. Thanks in advance for your comments!

    I also had some troubles with this: wanted to copy someone else's followers, but FL didn't do it because the user was blacklisted (I wanted to avoid following/favoriting him). That's pretty obvious, but hey, you gotta learn ;)

    Glad you really took time to learn FollowLiker for Twitter instead of posting a new thread every time you encounter a problem with the bot. :top:

    Thanks for sharing. Content is most important.

    Last week I had an auto-tweet from tumblr account that followed a celebrity. The celebrity retweeted my post. Thats a friggin gold mine for followers. Was lucky, but my account wasnt even set up yet. Was just testing.

    I'd like to add just one thing... I've been working FollowLiker on my personal account for quite some time, just slowly growing the account and figuring FollowLiker out.

    I agree 100% with the OP. I would, however, like to add one thing:

    Interact with your followers. This seems to me to be a major factor in growing my account... If potential followers can see that you interact with people, they're more likely to click that follow button.

    I agree. Absolutely right. Seeing accounts posting stuff and never replying / having a conversation with people looks less friendly.
