    Many threads are cropping up in the FB section of this forum, where users are finding it difficult to earn from their established pages, with some people even having millions of likes and generating very little income. Whilst it has become more difficult to earn from FB, it's not entirely impossible.

    I intended on making this a journey of growing an existing page from 50k likes to 100,000 likes. But in the past few days I managed to grow my page at a rapid rate, hence this will be half a journey and half a method thread.

    Background: I have been earning via FB for a number of years and already have a number of FB pages and websites, including partnerships with others. This page will grow independent of those pages, showing users that they can do the same.

    Journey: Creating a viral news/video/articles website and use FB page in order to reach $3,000/month via Adsense (and maybe Native ads).

    What I have started doing:
    Setup my website and filled with initial content to be Adsense compliant
    Setup plugins on Wordpress to autopost to FB
    Begin scheduling/publishing 3 articles daily >> Generate Traffic == $$$

    Method: As I mentioned, half the goal was to increase the page likes, but that target has already been reached, this was my EXACT approach and can be duplicated with ease.

    Firstly I deleted absolutely everything from my page, as it was a slightly older, spammed and abused page. Then I manually found pages related to my niche, and began reposting their content on my own pages. Large majority of these videos and images are general viral content without copyright issues.
    This kickstarted the engagement on my previously dormant page.

    For the first 3 days I posted a maximum of 5 posts each, you can use images/memes/videos. Each post was scheduled on the page, with timings spaced 3-5 hours apart.

    My publishing times were based on the insights of the page which show "When Your Fans Are Online". This can be found at YourFBPageLink/insights/?section=navPosts

    Example: Content such as videos with a caption of "Tag your friend who...." usually begins to generate a large number of comments and shares.

    Once the engagement began, new likes also started coming. Only at this point I started posting links to my website. Again this was content which I seen performing well on competitor's sites and pages. I rewrote the content and scheduled/published on my site, which was automatically posted via WP to FB through plugin.

    On the website I added a content locker at peak time of traffic, forcing a like/share to unlock content on the site. This brought further fresh traffic to the website. You can monitor your traffic via number of users online via Google Analytics or any stats counter.

    When the website began to generate traffic from these likes and shares, essentially coming in the form of friends of those who previously liked my page, I removed the share locker and began capturing these new likes by changing the content locker to like FB page, as well as silently likejacking.

    Results: Starting around June 24th till date, I have grown the page from 55k likes to 102k likes. Will post earnings in coming updates.

    You can search various plugins on WP that allow you to lock content, The main differences are usually that the pro versions have the option to "share to unlock" whilst free versions have the "like/tweet/g+" to unlock. For the basics you can use OnePress (premium version has share option), or Content Locker Pro which offers both. Google for "free" downloads if need be.

    OnePress Social Locker (Free) : https://wordpress.org/plugins/social-locker/
    Content Locker Pro (Paid) : https://mythemeshop.com/plugins/content-locker-pro/

    If you are going to boost your posts, make sure to select the countries you want to target, and chose interests and people who like competitor pages.

    Thanks men,the site is target to one country language. will begin ASAP

    what likejacker you use?

    what % of increase you think helped?

    I am little scared it may create issues with the fb page

    since i have 3 pages may be i will rotate between them

    increase of 50% is like 400k likes all togheter a hell of journey. :)

    I'm using a private LJ'ing system, but all plugins and scripts work pretty much the same. There are a couple available here in marketplace, check reviews and ratings in threads before selecting one. Begin likejacking once your page is active and getting good engagement, this helps with increasing your limit before receiving "confirm like" button. The social lockers also help remove the "confirm like" button, as majority of users will hit confirm when prompted, so you can switch between the two to remove your "confirm like" button.

    ok so you mean a real ongoing page trigger the confirm like later than a new page...

    i dont understand instead the use of the content locker in decreasing the likejacking triggering the confirm like

    The more genuine your likes look, the more you can jack without triggering the button.
    The difference between content locking and likejacking is that likejacking is done silently, and if a confirm button appears, there is no way for the user to click it, as they cannot see it. Whereas the like button on content locking if prompted to confirm, the user can confirm the like, and thus will lift your restrictions. Essentially you can likejack until you get confirm button, then place content locker to lift the restriction, and then continue likejacking.

    When you have a good flow of traffic whilst likejacking and your likes come to a halt or slow down quickly, you have the confirm button. Simple way to check is unlike your page, and perform the like action from your website, then you will be prompted with the confirm like button.

    This is a must follow thread thanks OP for giving so many useful tips. Haven't thought of content locker + like jacking.

    I have several FB pages about sexy girls. Long time ago I posted mylikes links and earn $$, now it's over with that.
    I was thinking to rename it and try something similar like this. Is it worth to try by your opinion? Thanks

    Page likes and earnings updated in earlier post, site costs are domain + hosting (both of which I already had).

    Try it out, if you need any help let me know.
    If your page(s) still have active followers, then you can continue posting on your existing pages and grow a new page from them, via the content locking and likejacking method.
