    Is it worth to buy social signals? Are they have any affect on SERPs? Some say no, others yes. What's your opinion?

    Google + does for some search queries. I wouldn't focus too much on them though. Understand the fact that google might consider social pages to validate your website. Every business, person and service usually has some type of social platform setup.

    IF they actually work obviously it's gd sign for your website and has a great impact on SERPs result ... sometimes it has rank with doing some on page SEO and social sharing although it's depend on KW competition.

    Just Be logical with these stuff, would you ever buy something from a site which has a no social presence at all ?

    Doing social signals might help a bit in SERPS but NOT TOO MUCH. It does but most important is backlinks.
    However, i have also read some case studies around somewhere stating that if you do social signals, you can do more backlinks because is like viral marketing. Google might counts ur backlinks as more natural.

    Like why a site without any marketing but gains backlinks? So, social signal helps in serps and make ur link building more natural. Try search for "social signal" in blackhat/whitehat seo sections, many ppl out there did case studies about this.

    I have tested social signals on multiple occasions over the years and never seen any significant changes.

    It doesn't affect your rankings directly but you may get a boost out of it with regards to exposure and engagement. It may likely increase your traffic and CTR.

    Buying them? No. They don't help SEO.

    Yes. I have ranked a 500 search a month phrase 1st with just social signals (and spot on on-page SEO of course!). It will work for phrases with not many searches per month, but don't expect it to work for more competitive phrases.

    it diversify your link profile
    It testify search engine that your other links are valid and not false one

    Lets say you build 50 links from high authority PBN. Is it possible that high authority website is mentioning you but you are no where in social platform
