    - Facebook like : some one liking your website by clicking on the facebook like button aon your website (if you have installed it).
    - Facebook Share - Someone sharing your webpage on their profile by clicking on share button on your website.

    To get shares directly to your pages you need to isntall a social sharing script on your website, top ones are - Addthis and share this.

    After that you can either promote your website on facebook and do it whitehat way, or buy some share or likes from the bhw marketplace or join a social sharing network , there are many in bhw.

    If we talk about credibility, a share is more trustable than a like in facebook. There are a lot of plugins for shares and likes if your website is on wordpress.

    Ive been searching for only facebook shares, but could not find any in the market place, only likes.

    Do you have a link to FB Shares that I could buy?

    If someone Clicks like on your Post then it will be shown as Person Likes a link but only if that person Wants this to be shown on his/her timeline.

    When a Person Clicks share, then the web page link is shown on his Timeline Showing Person Shared a Link.

    As said above... Share is better then Like. I was able to get some good FB likes and shares using Markething.me (There is a BST over here) But Unfortunately they have removed this feature now may be because of FB locking accounts too fast.

    To put it short, likes only appear on the newsfeed, not on the timeline of users. Share will appear and stick to the timeline too.

    • The Like button let's you share a link to your Timeline and in News Feed in one click
    • The Share button lets you write something about a link and choose the audience you want to post to.

      By Facebook

    if you need the difference,
    FB Like : Is to like our webpage with the help of like button.
    FB Share : Is to like our webpage and also he want to share it in his/her profile (So that his/her friends also want to see this)

    Where as you can try it with fiverr & SEOClerks. But use this according to your geolocation and targeted audience.

    Stay far away from Fiverr for real business purposes (SEO, PPC, etcetera). While not all Fiverr sellers are terrible, many of them are. If you want Facebook shares without paying for them, you couldalways use Like4Like. It's an exchange site (you like someone's content, and then someone likes your content) and you can also get Facebook likes and comments on there, too.
