    Moderator: If this is the wrong forum I apologize beforehand. Feel free to move to this thread to a more suitable forum if that's the case. Thank you in advance.

    I do not represent MyLikes. I stopped using them a long time ago and signed up for a private deal with another website. I share these tips out of goodwill, and for anyone who uses MyLikes or similar services to monetize.

    Don't PM me for more advice, "secret" tricks that don't exist, or irrelevant questions. I will not respond. Do not PM me about anything that is against BHW rules or Terms of Services. If you have any questions post them publicly.


    If you don't have a large number of US fans don't bother with these tips. MyLikes is only going to pay well for clicks generated from the USA. Canada, Australia and UK clicks are usually worth 30-50% of USA clicks. Make sure to check the insights of your page before using MyLikes. Make sure to check the insights of any Facebook page you buy if you plan to use MyLikes to monetize.

    Analyze your demographic - Before you share links on your Facebook page look at your demographic. Two major factors you should look at are age and gender. If your demographic is 80% female and 60% 13-17 years old don't share motorcyle links and political crap. It's not going to generate much! Try to share links that are relevant to your audience. Not just because MyLikes says so but because relevance is extremely important. Two links can be shared on the same page at the same time and with the same reach and still yield a huge difference in clicks.

    Create a schedule and stick to it - Don't post links. Schedule them. Start your day off by picking a certain number of links and deciding what times you'll post them. Use your scheduling tool. Because you're going to want your page to be mainly US you'll notice there are peak traffic times. General peak hours are 18:00-02:00 GMT 0 (when DST is not in effect), but you may want to use the new insights page to see when individual peak times are for your page(s). Put up your profitable links at the busiest hours. If you manage multiple pages it would be smart to rotate these links at different hours for different pages. Alternatively, you can design a unique schedule for each page with different links. This is especially useful if your audiences are significantly different between pages. Learn to keep track of the links you use everyday and archive them. I highly suggest Google Drive, which can create word documents within the browser and will instantly save any changes you make as you make them.

    Quick tip: when posting a link, let the thumbnail load and then remove the actual text link. Links generally get more clicks when the bit.ly isn't included in the post itself.

    Use bit ly analytics to find out which links are profitable - After a full day of use for a link it's wise to record the number of clicks it generated. After some days of recording these clicks you should be able to mark a general threshold for which links do well and which ones don't. This threshold is dependent on your overall influence. Large page owners might consider anything less than 2k clicks as not profitable while smaller page owners may consider it a blessing. Figure out your own definition of worthwhile and keep track of all links that do well. If you're keeping these links archived in a document like suggested you can always color code the text to identify how many clicks they generated in one day. An example would be coloring a link red if it generates under 1k, pink if generates 1k-2k, purple if it generates 2k-3k, etc.

    Learn to group together profitable links - If you follow my scheduling tip you'll be able to set up groups of links to go out on designated days far ahead of time. (I call these groups "sets") After you've archived many sets you'll be able to pull individual links from them that do very well. If your normal routine is to create sets of 10 links a day try to create a modified set for every 10 links you mark as profitable. So, if you archive three sets and 11 of those links turn out to monetize well creating a set for 10 of those 11 links is going to generate a lot of money. Reusing links that do well is encouraged. Be careful not to abuse the reuse or you'll risk depreciation (drop in reach & people unliking your page). I personally go by a day-week-month rule. I reuse a good link the day after its first use, a week or two after its first reuse and a month or two after its second reuse (if it's particularly viral and profitable). I rarely reuse a link three times and I never go above that.

    Reuse profitable links at different times - The majority of Facebook users are habitual. They log on around the same times most days. Scheduling links allows you the opportunity to reuse good links at different times in the future in order to get the most unique clicks out of them. The best way to do this is to piggy back off my previous tip. If you've created a set of, let's say, 8 profitable links all you have to do is cut the list in half and reverse them. Example:

    Check out these BlackHatWorld members and their awkward family photos. #8 is SO embarrassing! <link 1> 03:00
    With his limitless NSA budget Obama can see everything you do! But can he see why kids like Cinnamon Toast Crunch? <link 2> 06:00
    Here are some photos of people shitting themselves when they saw Miley trying to twerk. #2 is my favorite~ <link 3> 09:00
    Cheese! I bet you didn't know there were so many uses for it, huh? I hear #5 makes your crap smell like flowers <link 4> 12:00

    Am I a 70 year old admin who likes to throw popcorn at the neighbors? B*tch I might be <link 5> 15:00
    Wow, really? Alright, I know for a fact #8 is fake. These are definitely not pictures of dead people -_- <link 6> 18:00
    LOL Watch these internet marketers walk into "invisible" glass doors . . . LOSERS <link 7> 21:00
    Pictures of rocks that look like celebrities! I can see the resemblance between #3 and Dwayne Johnson <link 8> 00:00

    Simply switch the red links with the blue links and use the same time slots. It becomes this:

    I've found a lot of success in doing this. I've posted a profitable set one day and generated $700. I've posted the same exact set the following day with reversed times and still generated another $600. Posting at different times will maximize the number of unique clicks you receive on a reused link.

    This is all I can write for now. If I think of any more tips I'll post them. If any of these seem wrong to you please point them out! I'm committed to keeping these tips accurate and verifiable and I'll try to update them to reflect any changes Facebook or MyLikes makes (in relevance to monetizing with PPC links).
