Cool little trick to get more Facebook likes...

124 replies
I see many threads on here where people are constantly looking for new ways to get more likes to their fanpages. Most often the replies are the same to these threads. Nothing new gets shared. Here's a neat little trick that will get you extra facebook likes.

I think I'm the only one who uses this strategy... I better be, I'm the one who thought of it first

Instead of "liking" other fanpages within your niche, you "like" people's comments instead. Go onto a fanpage where there is plenty of interaction and simply "like" every comment on a post. This works very well and can get you a consistent amount of traffic to your page for as little as 10 minutes work every day.

If a certain post has 100 comments for example, you would like every single comment. No need to look at the comments before you like them, this will only waste time. When you like someone's comment, that little tab at the top of their page will highlight red. What happens when they see that tab highlighted red at the top of their facbook page? They click on it, don't they? Don't you do it too? Everyone does.

When they click on the tab, they'll see your page, and most often will click through to your fanpage. If your content on your page is valuable, you will get the "like."

Think about this for a second. It takes less than a second to "like" a comment. How many comments could you "like" in 10 minutes? How many could you get through in a week, month etc?

I used this on my personal development fanpage and consistently built my fan base. It works very well indeed. Some of you may think this is a little cheeky, but I have to disagree. All you are doing is letting people know you and your page exists. You are not forcing them to click through to your page. Actually, if you believe your page is the dogs b****x then you can justify your actions by believing you are doing them a favour. You get "likes," they get quality information related to their interests... it's a win win.

I haven't used this little strategy for a while because I have moved away from facebook, but I know it works well. I have only tried this in the personal development niche so not sure how well it will work in other niches.

10 minutes = 500 liked comments
7 days (10 minutes) = 3,500 comments
1 month (10 minutes) = between 12 - 15,000 comments "liked"

How many do you think will be curious enough to click through to your page out of the above numbers? Remember, we are curious by nature

Hope this little strategy helps.

    Great idea, I have been doing that myself.. Be careful though, I got a 14 day suspension as FB deemed me spamming as I was liking too quickly! So maybe pace yourself a little.

      I have a question for the people who got issues with FB. At what rate would you say you were liking comments? Just to get an idea of when to stop. Thanks!

        I think that's not allowed.

        Have you read the Facebook Page Guidelines?

        E. Promotions (v): You must not use Facebook features or functionality, such as the Like button, as a voting mechanism for a promotion.

        This trick can easily waste your hours of hard work.

      Do not do it so quickly. Try to be natural. You were told to like all comments but not importantly you should like all the comments under a post. There should be thousands of posts under a fage. Just like the recent comments in a natural manner.

        Great tip and a good point.. it's very gray-hat.. but I think if you do it
        moderately, it would work awesome.

        Going to have to give it a little "experiment"..

      It's been a while since i used this strategy but I hadn't had any problems. Once or twice, facebook tells you that you're liking comments too fast. This happens rarely, but when it does, just slow down or take a break.

      I don't understand how this can be looked on as spam. You're not adding crappy comments to the posts. You're not affecting anything in a negative way whatsoever. Okay, it's a little sneaky, but let's be honest here, people love to see you liking their comments. I even got many messages from people thanking me for liking their comments. Not to mention, if you have a valuable fanpage that you believe will help people in some way, what's the harm. It's not like you are pummeling the web with useless junk.

        Hi Retsced,

        Thanks for the tip. I do like to go into the pages I visit and like comments but not sure I would go crazy and like everything as it is not me.

        I do however see the value and like others it looks a powerful non time consuming way to drive some traffic so fair play

        Thanks

    hmm, I will try this no harm in giving it a go and seeing if it works I guess. Not everyone is like me (I don't tend to look at the liked list, lol) Personally I think commenting is better, I'm more interested in checking out people that provide value. But then I'm one in a sea of millions.

    Anyway, I'll give this a try, will be interesting to see the results.

      I agree with you that participating in discussions and building relationships is a better strategy long-term, however, this is just an extra little tip that can add to your already existing strategies.

    Very cool idea - I've no doubt this approach works but as some of the other guys have mentioned how do you avoid getting a slap off FB?

    Have you encountered any problems with this approach or have a general limit of 100,200 likes a day that you don't go over?

    Cheers for the tip
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[6427586].message }}
  • Profile picture of the author retsced
    Honestly guys. I have used this approach a while back. FB may pop a message up saying "you're doing this to fast," in this case i just ease off and do them a little slower. You can alternate between slow and fast and work out a happy medium.

    The best way to convert your fb likes is to funnel the traffic to your website or your product page. If you have a general FB page (ex. "I love internet marketing") then what you can do is to recommend your product to your fans thus funneling the traffic to your website.

    I would just like to bump this thread to thank you, retsced for this great advice. I went to a couple of facebook pages that were related to my own facebook page and liked quite a few comments. I did however go after quality, I didn't just spam-like any comment. All though I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not but it felt like maybe my facebook page would be taken more seriously if I only picked good comments instead of liking anything.

    Anyhow, the result after 30-40 minutes of liking comments my average daily unique visitor income to my site increased with about 30%. Maybe this didn't have anything to do with liking comments but I believe it did. I will try it for a couple of days and see how it goes.

      Cheers,

      Yes, it definitely works very well my friend. Not sure about the "spam" you mention by liking just any comment. Surely you can't "half spam" can you? This is not spamming. No matter what way you cut it, liking people's comments doesn't add any garbage to the post or page you "liked" I started out just liking comments that were good ones, but it reduces the return of time invested and you end up getting less "likes"

      If your content on your own page is quality and you know others can benefit from it, then just "like" any comment. All you are doing is alerting people to the fact you have a great page that they will find useful.

      If you were to just "like" people's comments that were on posts not related to your own content, then maybe that can seem like spam, but that's not the case here. When i used this strategy for my personal development page, I had many people love my content and who thank me all the time for the information I give to them. Now, those people would have missed out on that content if I ignored their comments and just liked certain ones. You get my point?

      If your page is quality then you will be doing them a favour. That's exactly the way I saw it. If i had a crap page, I wouldn't feel good about doing this strategy, but let's be honest, if your page is crap, what's the bloody point in having one.

        Just because you aren't polluting the web with junk content doesn't mean you aren't spamming.

        To me spam is anything that I didn't specifically request that takes my attention away from what I'm doing for the reason of trying to sell me on something.

        Yes, everyone loves seeing the little red (1) pop up, but I HATE it when it's obviously some crap like a game or an invite that I had no use for.

        I'm amazed at how people can lie to themselves about a lot of the stuff they do on this board as being "legit", I guess we can rationalize anything if there is a chance we might suck a little money out of it.

        "Oh yeah, I'm just going through and clicking 100/200 likes, I don't even worry about reading the comments, that will just slow you down!"

        CMON GUYS! That's Effing Spam! Maybe not "typical spam", but it is.

        Maybe it's not a big problem right now, but if it catches on (which I'm sure it probably will), and you're getting 100 or 200 likes on your comments a day from every douchebag with a fanpage - what the hell else are you going to call it?

      I'm new to Facebook and I have the same question. Does anybody know how you like things when you're logged in as a fan page? I can't seem to see how to do it and I can't help feeling I'm missing something obvious. Do I have to log in as myself on FB in order to like things, but doesn't that then just re-direct traffic back to me and not my fan page? :confused:

      Thanks.

    The simplest of ideas are often the best ones!

    It is important though that you focus on building your "Edge Rank" once someone has liked your page.

    This means that once someone is a fan of your's, you have to produce engaging content that makes people want to share, comment and like it etc.

    This means F/B will reward you the next time by placing your next posts etc as a priority on your fans walls when they login etc.

    You are now gaining maximum exposure for each piece of content you post at F/B.

    Think about it!

      You have to "like" the owners page before you get the option to "like" comments on their posts.

      It definitely works. I wouldn't have posted it otherwise. But, to be honest, I used this strategy in the personal development niche. Not sure how effective it will be in other niches, but I'd image you'll get results regardless. Why ask if it works when you can simply test it yourself. Spend 10 minutes a day over the next week and see what the results are.

        Ahhh! Thanks for that. Problem. :rolleyes: I can't see the like button on the owner's page. I created my facebook account as product/brand. Do you think that is what the problem is? What type of account did you open/are using?

    Now, while that is a good tip and it actually works, why don't you add 10 more minutes to your daily routine and leave you comment on new posts? On most pages you will see that there are only couple of new posts per day, so it won't take you too much time to leave a solid comment... However, that will help you to increase visibility of your fan page even more...

    This method is not used to replace any other existing ones. It's just another little tip to add to your existing strategies. That's it. If you feel it's a bit dodgy and your page could be shut down, then don't use it. Simple. But I have never had a problem using this strategy in the past. I have other methods that work well also. It's actually very easy to get Facebook "likes," I could never understand why people struggle to get fans on Facebook.

    Just write a short message to page owners telling them that you love the content on their page. Tell them you don't like posting your links without getting permission to do so, and ask would they mind sharing a link with their fans. 9/10 they will comply. Again, simple. On top of that, ask them if they would like you to share some of their links on your page and that you would be happy to do so. Boom, you just built a relationship with a page owner and you share each others links on your page. Do this with a couple of owners and you're in business. Now that wasn't too difficult was it?

    Have a good one guys,, I'm off out to get drunk.

    Wanted to come back to this thread as I've experimented with this idea for about a week now. It works. However, you do have to have a strategy for getting your PAGE liked, not just your posts. The first two days, the likes on my postings went up by about 300% from doing this. However, I wasn't getting any likes on my pages.

    I simply added a "like us for more motivational quotes like this one ^" to all my posts and started getting about 3 or 4 likes a day, from about 5 minutes worth of work. So my take, not a bad little idea here. Thanks for sharing.

    I think I'm the only one who uses this strategy... I better be, I'm the one who thought of it first

    Instead of "liking" other fanpages within your niche, you "like" people's comments instead. Go onto a fanpage where there is plenty of interaction and simply "like" every comment on a post. This works very well and can get you a consistent amount of traffic to your page for as little as 10 minutes work every day.

    If a certain post has 100 comments for example, you would like every single comment. No need to look at the comments before you like them, this will only waste time. When you like someone's comment, that little tab at the top of their page will highlight red. What happens when they see that tab highlighted red at the top of their facbook page? They click on it, don't they? Don't you do it too? Everyone does.

    When they click on the tab, they'll see your page, and most often will click through to your fanpage. If your content on your page is valuable, you will get the "like."

    Think about this for a second. It takes less than a second to "like" a comment. How many comments could you "like" in 10 minutes? How many could you get through in a week, month etc?

    I used this on my personal development fanpage and consistently built my fan base. It works very well indeed. Some of you may think this is a little cheeky, but I have to disagree. All you are doing is letting people know you and your page exists. You are not forcing them to click through to your page. Actually, if you believe your page is the dogs b****x then you can justify your actions by believing you are doing them a favour. You get "likes," they get quality information related to their interests... it's a win win.

    I haven't used this little strategy for a while because I have moved away from facebook, but I know it works well. I have only tried this in the personal development niche so not sure how well it will work in other niches.

    10 minutes = 500 liked comments
    7 days (10 minutes) = 3,500 comments
    1 month (10 minutes) = between 12 - 15,000 comments "liked"

    How many do you think will be curious enough to click through to your page out of the above numbers? Remember, we are curious by nature

    Hope this little strategy helps.
    Excellent concept! The only thing is you have to take it slow though. I just tried it and got a warning from the Geek Ward at Facebook that it "appeared" I was going to fast and liking for other than what should be intended.

    Good little tip. But, I would never just go through and "like" others' comments without getting an idea as to what their comment is saying.

    I have seen some people make comments that are disgusting, stupid and/or just flat out wrong. I would not want to be seen liking those kind of comments.

    It could prove to back fire on you if you're not careful there..

      I agree with you to a point. I wouldn't want to be "liking" comments that are disgusting, but seriously, how often does that happen? Completely depends on the niche you're in I suppose. You have to weigh up the pros and cons with any strategy. Of course, you know what's best for you. That's all that matters.

      As I mentioned a couple of times before though, how you use this is up to you. I just supply the tip, you implement it as you see fit. I personally use FB advertising and do not use this strategy anymore. I honestly couldn't be arsed sitting on FB at all these days. Social media is powerful, but does my bloody head in

    What I would do to get more Facebook Likes is: Buy a few hundred Facebook Likes to your page (500 Likes for $8 at buyfblikes.ca) then start participating in the comments like this guy says. The reason I would buy likes first is because people are EXTREMELY unlikely to Like or join a page with anything less than 400 Likes or users. It also makes your page more visible on the side bars. Liking comments is good, but you should also join discussions and tell people about your website. I'd recommend against putting ads for your page, I tried it and it didn't do very well for my page. Good luck with your website!

      Posting on other people's pages without permission is next to useless. People ignore other links unless they are posted by the page owner. Just go onto a page that has many comments and look for links that someone (other than the page owner) posted. You will see that nobody responds to the post at all.

      But, what you should do is contact the page owner by sending them a private message. Ask them if they would post your link for you. You'd be very surprised how many actually have no problem doing so. Create a really compelling message telling them...

      1) You love the content on their page
      2) You have a great post/article/promotion that you think their fans would appreciate and benefit from
      3) Tell them you were going to post the link onto their wall yourself but decided that asking their permission was the ethical thing to do (they'll appreciate this)
      4) Tell them that you would love to reciprocate by placing a link of their choosing on your wall and will write a good comment about it
      5) Be very warm, complimentary and professional about it

      Follow those steps and I guarantee almost all of the page owners you contact will be delighted to post a link for you. Copy the message into notepad and send it to 5 - 10 page owners a day. You will not only get your links on their wall, but they will be the ones placing them there which means their fans will respond kindly to them.

      You can build some really great relationships with fan page owners using this method and in no time at all you will have a lot of free traffic.

      Hope that helps.

      Best of luck man. I think the niche determines how effective this method will be. In the personal development/self help niche this trick works damn well. In other niches like MMO it may not work as well, but will still work. The main advice I can give is to be consistent. A lot of people will try this for 1 day, see little results and move onto something else. Test it for 30 days and give it at least 10 minutes each and every day.

      Way to go for over thinking it Brian Of course that's always a consequence for liking posts without looking at the comment. Especially "liking" comments on pages that are controversial in nature. I simply relayed a method I used for a self help fan page I ran many moons ago. I never had any problems whatsoever, but a bit of common sense is advised. I can't speak for how others approach the idea, but for myself, I knew exactly what I was doing and how I was using the method. Which was very effective and had no consequences whatsoever.

      There are indeed better ways to get traffic. No one is disputing that. This is a cool little tip, and whether you agree with it r not, it worked damn well for me in the past and I'm sure for many others into the future.

      P.S... I wrote a very inspiring guest post for a really popular self help blog a while back. The post itself was absolutely as tame as can be, but I had some nut job follow me about online claiming I was the antichrist. Goes to show, sometimes no matter what you do....

      Not at all my friend, you're not pissing on my parade. I thought this strategy up years ago myself. If you heard it somewhere then It was from someone who heard it from me. If you thought it up yourself then we both had the same thought, which is very likely. I haven't used it in a long time since I abandoned fanpages for direct advertising.

    Thats a cool little idea. I'm definitely going to keep that one in the back of my mind when I decide to hit up facebook again. Now I'm antsy and want to try it just to see how it would turn out. lol

      I'm convinced most of the posters ITT haven't even tried it. People DON'T receive notifications. This would have worked in the past, but Facebook has changed.

      It doesn't work.

    Very nice idea, I must try this.

    Edit : Just checked this trick and it dosen't seems to be working as nobody is receiving the notifications. Thanks anyway for sharing.

    Nice tips thank you.
    I have a question though, and I think its me setting up wrongly.
    I have my fanpages through a different logon to my personal page.. therefore cannot search.
    Do you think Facebook would combine the pages and personal profile if I requested ?

    Yes, I can confirm that this works.

    The best thing is to interact with someone "higher up" than you.

    My friend had 100 fans. He interacted with somebody with 10,000 fans - now he has 3000 fans!
