    Hi,

    There are many ways to get more followers on twitter and recieve facebook likes for your account or fanpage but my question is in what this inpacts your ranking. does it matter if you haven 99999 followers or like's and is there a problem if lot's of these accounts are fake.

    So for example if you buy a fiverr gig for 2000 twitter followers is it worth the money?

    I think that the more followers you have in your account the more traffic you can get to your account. If you post something,then your followers can see it and might get interested then they may share it to others.

    The more followers you have, the more massive your e-penis is.

    Personnaly i m not focus on followers, as you said there s bot. Plus, when you buy followers pack it s not depending a niche.
    Because of this 2 facts, you probably not receive a good rate of clicks.
    And about ranking, for twitter, yes! It s interresting if you want your tweets appear on search result on twitter. More you will have followers, bot or not, more your tweets will appear on search request.
    Well, with twitter, i think it depend on your goal. 2 ideas: first, receive direct traffic. This idea is to send direct message, mention, to twitter users. With this kind of work, you will see a traffic result almost immediatly. The cons, you will have to repeat this work everyday to receive traffic.
    The second idea is to work on followers. The idea will be more you will have followers more you will have visits. Here, you can t be sur of your traffic result. It will depend of your niche. It take more time to have same traffic result than the first idea. But when you will have build a big list of followers, you will just have to post a tweet to receive traffic.As i said, your result with this work depend of your niche. You must have a large niche to have big success.
    Social network is very good to drive traffic on your website. This is perfect if you don t want work with seo and search engine. Plus, you can have traffic result in the first day! With search engine and seo, your result will appear after 15 days, of course, depending your niche and keywords.

    If you have a lot of followers or likes, when people visit your page they will think: hmm this website is respectable. I'm going to like it as well. Then you start earning followers/likes from real people.

    Don't forget it is also good social proof. If you are just starting out and directing real traffic to your social media properties, having a large number of followers/likes is essentially buying credibility that you haven't actually earned yet AKA 'fake it till you make it'

    Rubbish what people are saying!

    You can have 150,000 followers on twitter and anotehr 250,000 likes on Facebook but if none of them actually have any communication with you, your facebook wall is blank then Google can see right through it!

    Its not about how many followers you have, its about how many are actually active and that is what improves your 'seo scores'

    I have seen sites with only 200/300 fans/followers see some huge improvements in seo purely because of how many of the users are active in sharing links blah blah
