    Ok so

    I bought facebook followers and Twitter followers

    And my main keyword has dropped 20 places.

    Is this a coincidence or was the twitter and facebook the reasons my ranking dropped?

    If yes, what is the proper way to use social signals?

    Did you drip feed the signals? How old is the domain?
    I suggest you wait a few days and keep an eye on the rankings. The proper way is to use natural, drip fed signals.

    I did not drip feed them.

    How am I supposed to drip feed them?


    I bought them from fiverr

    On Fiverr msg the gig owner that you need drip fed social signals only :), there are many fiverr gigs offering what you want to be honest.

    You must ask the seller to do that. If he really understands how social signals work he must offer that as an option. The only thing you can do now is wait and learn a valuable lesson from this experience: don't buy SEO services from Fiverr, unless you really know what you're doing. :)

    I just checked fiverr for drip fed social signals, but none of them offer drip fed twitter followers. They also offer things in the package such as "500 facebook backlinks" and I really dont like the sound of those

    Communicate with the seller and ask them if they can drip feed the links.

    Mark it watching you! Nah, just kidding, there is some weird shit happening in Google lately. I'm jumping from 30 to 3 to 10 to 1 to 40 and to 10 again. It's an old site, I haven't built links in ages, probably 7 months.

    If I can look at a website promoting lets say American Amazon products and see just about all the followers are hot girls and a bunch of random male Indians, surely Google has figured out how to check for this. Some of this stuff, does it even make sense to have the amount of followers or likes, especially the niche? This is just my assumption on what your followers might be.
