    I've been chasing them, using social lockers etc for years and only just recently realized I have no idea what they do for me. Back to basics.

    How do they benefit you? Do they increase your FB's ranking in Serps? Does someone liking your page mean it's advertised to all of their friends? What am i chasing after here?

    The value of a "real" like is almost impossible to pinpoint. The fact of the matter is that every single like providing service on the internet is providing "fake" likes, why wouldn't they just build up millions of fan pages themselves if the likes were real?

    The answer? Because they can't. The likes definitely aren't going to be reliable - if the like was "real" (as in, the person who likes my page will actually interact with it and such), it could lead to me making a $20 sale or a $200 sale.

    It's hard to give a firm number, all I can say is that it would be incredibly pricey if someone were able to provide 100% real likes.

    SEO-wise I'd say at least 1000X more than a run of the mill fake like.

    Not only is Google getting better at realising fake social signals, but real likes get stuff seen by other real people and in turn generate more REAL social buzz. Fake likes just justify you enough to lay more links.

    We can't tell the approximate value the facebook likes, it increases the popularity and reputation. Its creates a viral traffic, everyday millions of people visit the facebook site. Facebook page creates trustworthy, when people likes a particular post/site/product it means they get the feeling that the post/site is legitimate and trustworthy which can't be expressed by numbers.

    Real life = Real people
    One real like = advertisement on the timeline on all of his/her real friends
    Now you decide; what is the value of real likes for you ? ;)
