    Odds are it is not really FB traffic but a bot with the referrer faked.

    They will most likely share your link on their groups and pages, usually clickbait posts, fake news with interesting images. These are "ok" quality traffic. But some also sells exchanged traffic, those are useless.

    and what BassTrackerBoats said, that could be the case too.

    The ones selling FB traffic right now are using own groups , profiles and autolikers - yes they are on again. Sellers charge $4 per 1k and thats the crappiest traffic ever

    Not true - i have FB traffic and don't use ads

    Could you please elaborate? I assume that by "using own groups" means they post my link to their group. What do they do with profiles and autolikers?

    post on profile and use autoliker to get likes to the post . If its a clickbait - 20k likes will turn to 5k-6k clicks

    Its like a group of people clicking on each others links organized by some software or websites. They are useless and will result in zero converts.

    What's the role of auto-liking here? How does it generate clicks? The more likes, the wider the organic reach?

    but that's shoutouts, you can't sell specific amount of traffic and you can't target it

    Mostly they are fake or useless traffic.You need to go with traffic bought from FB ads,which is expensive but can be targeted as well.

    Again NOT true - to get fb traffic people don't have to buy ads and your services ;) I have over 150k traffic daily from FB and i don't use ads.

    I think the OP is talking about traffic not likes? Like exchange may work but in traffic exchange it will never convert.

    Unfortunately in my experience that is the one that you can track.150K traffic is nice,but you didn't start now i guess.The methods that were good years ago are not working the same anymore.For newbies the only option is try to spam groups - which is not simple anymore,have pages or ads.

    yes - that's why i mentioned above certain amount of likes will turn into clicks. s4s in FB works differently than IG or other social networks.

    I think the forum would benefit with you sharing a tutorial on how you generate that volume of traffic via FB.

    I have no trouble generating huge traffic on a regular basis by posting in relevant facebook groups (there is a thread I started about that in the money making section) but you are doing something different and I'm sure the membership would appreciate you taking the time to share.

    You are right - not easy , but not impossible . I started years ago , but helping few people now and all are doing good without spending on ads. I dont say anything against boosts and using fb ads.
    However we got off topic
