    So for my niche site I am wondering... Do I just need a plugin like Digg Digg so that people that come to my website can like my website, or do I need a Facebook Page created and a widget that connects my website to my Facebook page?

    For getting social signals for ur website, you need widgets on your site and not a page

    And as for buying likes and so on, is there any way of that hurting your rankings?

    If you buy fake likes, there will be no interaction by them hence your reach will not increase which would see you dropping in the facebook's news feed

    If I understand your first post correctly, you were saying I don't need a Facebook page for my site but I need a widget so that people can like my site. So if I was not looking to reach anyone, but just get some social signals. Can I just buy likes for my webpage? Would that help?

    I honestly have no idea what you're looking for all i can understand from that is facebook and social signals. Which one do you want?

    Do you want likes on your facebook page or website?

    I want social signals to better my rankings. In order to get these social signals I am asking do I simply need a widget on my website (not connected to my Facebook page) so that people can Like my website, or do I actually need a Facebook page made and connected to a Worpress social widget so that when they use the widget to like my page it also like my Facebook page?

    My understanding so far is that Social Signals for SEO, does not need a Facebook page created at all. As long as someone is able to use your widget to like your website it should be fine?
