    I only want to hide like 30 characters of text. Will using this plugin harm my rankings? I don't want to get penalized as I rely on SE traffic for 95% of my traffic.

    Some people say yes it hurts, as you can see few posts of victims in last algo update threads. But for me nothing happened, even my sites ranking went up where I was using Social Locker (byonepress). I think it depends on the plugin codes as well which you're going to use.

    That's the one coded in JQuery right? I'm only going to lock a small portion of the post, like for example: if I made a post about cooking a ribeye steak, I would make the procedures and time to cook visible, but I'm going to lock the list of ingredients. I'm not in that niche, but you get the idea. How about you? Do you lock ALL of the content or just a very small portion?

    I see, but the page that's going to be liked is the post on wordpress not fan page. Do you that's fine?

    It's fine as long as you don't get caught/reported :) Better use a likejacker, it's less obvious.
