    If i got site going after a handful of medium -ish keywords how many social signals should I be sending to money site?

    I know you want to look natural but if someone has a general idea "send a total of 400 over 60 days on dif social platforms" or something like that I can follow i'd appreciate it!

    Even better... 0, over any length of timeline.

    I used to buy into the 'oh it'll look more natural' argument too and even the logical '90% of internet traffic is on social sites...they HAVE to matter!' arguments but after ranking several medium (subjective) terms over the past few months with absolutely 0 social signals, alongside almost identical sites with social signals, I've seen absolutely no difference, zero, nothing, nadda.

    So just build good links and they will come.

    Im of the opinion that social signals are not helpful in ranking. Backlinks from good quality sites will get you ranked in 6 weeks ish for a medium comp keywords.

    Social signals will help give a more natural look when/if a manual review happens

    You can't rank with social signals. Its good to have them to make your link building look even more natural, other then that they are just useless.
