Are Facebook Likes a Must?

Does our success as online marketer also depend upon Facebook likes incorporated on our websites? In what way these likes influence online presence of a website? A beginner in affiliate marketing gets a few hundreds of likes only in the first few years of his website's online presence. What then is your suggestion?

Facebook Likes represent your Facebook page's relevance and online presence in social media. This means your Facebook posts are able to reach a lot of people, and that the people it reached find it relevant enough to hit on the "Like" button.

It is not the make or break of an affiliate marketer's success, but it helps a lot in establishing your website's online presence. It can also bring traffic to your website.

There are different ways now to get more Likes in Facebook, so you can easily get a thousand or more within the first year of social media marketing.

All the best!

Yes, you can get more Likes in Facebook by sharing your page on your personal Facebook page and asking friends and acquaintances to Like it. Individual Facebook posts can now be boosted for a small fee so you reach more people, and when your posts are shared, it includes a button to like the actual page along with the post.

There are also companies who encourage users to like their page or a particular post by offering freebies or discounts.

You can check out Facebook's Help page. They offer tips there on how to increase Page and Post likes, and other SEO websites do too.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

This depends on what your goals are as an online marketer. If you include social media marketing (Facebook) as part of your marketing campaign and you are successful at 'every aspect' of it, meaning not just the number of likes BUT you are able to convert these likes to clicks, traffic, and sales- then yes, you may define this as an achievement.

In what way these likes influence online presence of a website?


If your goal is to increase online presence then go for social media/Facebook marketing. This is exactly what social media sites are for in terms of marketing. The obvious outcome of course is- the more FB likes you get, the better the visibility of your FB page. However, FB likes are just one of the many factors you can use to increase visibility. You should also target to increase your FB shares (content/posts) and user interaction to your posts (comments) to be more visible on social media.
A beginner in affiliate marketing gets a few hundreds of likes only in the first few years of his website's online presence. What then is your suggestion?


You need to become active on social media. An FB page becomes stagnant, irrelevant and eventually loses its overall online presence when you let it. You probably do not post a lot of new content on your page. You do not promote the page on your website or on your newsletters. Try to become visible as much as possible. There are tons of tips out there on how to increase your social media presence.

It's not compulsory to have facebook likes but if you wanted to go through the facebook marketing than it is compulsory. Facebook likes only increase the online presence and also it shows how people interested to like your posted content.

I think it is depend on your business and what you want. If your business is to sell your products mainly through Facebook interaction, then yes, Facebook Likes show your reputation and customer will more likely to trust your company. However, if your purpose of Facebook page is only to drive traffic to your website, then I think the answer is no; there are some ways to drive traffic to your website through an empty Facebook page.
Hope this help and if I am incorrect in anything, please feel free to feedback so I can study as well.

How do you think, does Google counts the popularity of the page in FB as a ranking factor?

Facebook Likes can be used as gauge to the popularity of a Facebook Page, but not a webpage.

Google still determines a webpage's rank mainly through amount of traffic and its relevance to the keyword.

i was sure that having your friends to like it is basically to add users without unique interest, and by doing so you harm you Facebook reputation.

Recommending Facebook Pages to your friends list in Facebook will not harm your reputation. This is like you endorsing or recommending a product to your friends, and if they like it then they click the button. This is a built-in function in Facebook, and once your friends click on the Like button, then that's them saying "yeah, I like this page." so there's no faking or deceiving here.

And again, this is within Facebook's own rules.

So it's like a website where we can spam traffic all we like as long as we have supply, Cecille? Someone told me FB has its own rule and GG can't do a thing about it

I'm not sure what you mean by "spam traffic". You can build a following in Facebook, and spamming your audience is definitely not the way to go about that.

What I mean is that you can promote a campaign to your friends on FB with message like "Help me reach xxxx likes,..." or whatever like that. Spam traffic is traffic that disregards the content. I saw it hundreds times so that is my view on FB. When you got a large number of followers on FB, it's alot easier to promote ANY kind of campaign

Don't waste your money to buy facebook likes, instead, promote each post through ads.
Otherwise, you will pay to get likes first and then you will need to pay twice to increase your reach.

In my opinion, FB likes does matter since it somehow gives you an idea of a follower's preference in terms of a given topic. When you talk of business on the other hand, your success does not solely depend on this metrics as you also have to deal with other aspects. Although, you can say that it verifies your presence online as it validates the fact that your website provides relevant and valuable contents to certain audiences...:)
