    No. of likes is not a matter any way. You can even buy many likes from fiverr.com
    Regarding SEO, Google has announced that if you get more Google"+", it will be a nice thing for SEO. In a webmasters central video by Matt Cutts said that a link from social media is counted as a link from any other site. Another one thing to remember is that many pages are not publicly displayed. So links from these pages would not be counted

    Right. A link is one thing and they are counted (some are no followed, though). A "like" cannot be counted, though.

    I'm not sure I follow... SEO should be the last concern with social, you've got customers, fans, prospects all right in front of you to work with already.

    SEO is always a concern. Sure, you may get some direct traffic with social networking and that's great. You are also looking for the links that those people will generate to your website and the links from those links, and so on, and so on ...

    Don't under-estimate the importance of discovery. People only search when they are looking.

    Let's keep this thread on topic about Social Media -- Facebook "likes" in particular -- and away from Google and SEO. If you wish to discuss SEO, please start a thread in Internet Marketing to do so.

    Having constant activity and allowing people to come up and post interesting content is the best way to get more likes or you can ask others to call their friends to like you. The other ways are to use sites such as youpluslike which allow you to create your own campaign using coins which you earn through either liking others, +1 others, watching youtube videos, subscribing others youtube channel, tweeting their tweets, following their tweeter ids etc or you can buy coins using paypal.

    Hey
    in order to get more likes, you need to update the page.
    i mean to write short interesting posts, helpful facts, etc.
    the power of the like can be very important for the page and the site you promote.

    be careful from buying likes, mostly they won't bring you the right people who will eventually buy your product/service.

    The best way is to make sure you are always posting new things and replying to everyone. When people see that you are active they will tend to Like your page more often.

    Create more latest & interesting information on your page. Give invitation to all of your friends to like your page. Ask them to like your page from their friends.... I think this is the best way to increase like on your page.

    Try making it viral with funny shares.
    Use a cheap PPC campaign, shouldn't be expensive.

    I wouldn't turn to Fiverr and the rest, I'm too scared one day Facebook could spot the fake followers.

    It's actually a good thing that you're scared of the possibilities that Facebook might start tracking fake Likes. Why would one person or brand want to get that much Likes if not all of those are coming from a legitimate user in the first place? Let's say all those Likes on your page come from a bot; which "user" are you going to talk to if that's the case?

    Those who try to rack up likes for the sake of seeing high numbers on their profile should be more scared that their followers/friends will realize they are no more than a number on a page for those folks. I think we're all tired of an impersonal world and long to get back to the day when the merchant from the corner store asked about your family, your job, and the interests you shared together. That's what Social platforms like FB and Twitter do. They give us a chance to get to know the person, not just grope for their business.

    Look through your news feed and find friends of friends who are very active in clicking the like button. Send invites to these people. Once you have active friends, then keep updating your page with funny videos, interesting stories, cool pics. . .

    What if your page isn't about funny videos? Or if the friends of your friends don't like being spammed?

    Privacy is an issue with Facebook for years now. Getting spammed and receiving invites from strangers is common. Facebook even posts recommendations on their own for you to check out or try friends of friends. Worst thing that can happen is you get ignored or blocked by the person. No big deal if it's just friends of friends.

    Besides, these people who enjoy clicking the Like button too much or keep posting so much data are not likely to be too concerned about privacy. I doubt those who don't like being spammed would click the like button too much. The more private users would usually go through all the trouble of taking off tags and fixing their privacy settings. Facebook has been around for years with 900 million users. Over time, you kinda get the hang of the personality types in there.

    Perhaps I just have friends / connections with different expectations but I've never heard about a stranger's invite in a positive context. I have however seen many people on this forum taking that approach talk about having their account restricted and even disabled.

    We live in a transparent world, facebook being the catalyst for much of that... Why not post what you're doing and ask those who are interested in it to share it along? You get the benefit of actual connected validation without the concern of relevancy or stepping on toes.

    I know where you're coming from but Facebook itself has changed the name of the game. I gave the recommendation with the impression that, like most users wanting more likes, the motive is about marketing. At this point, Facebook is no longer just a way to connect with friends. It has become a marketing platform. And considering Facebook's recent IPO fiasco, there's more pressure for the company to make money. That being said, it's almost certain Facebook will pursue further changes to make the network more commercialized. Recent news hint that Zuckerberg is in further negotiation with Walmart. If Facebook is trying to make as much money off its users, who's to say users can't do marketing strategies on their own?

    I'd agree with everything you said, in fact I'd suggest Facebook wants more business interaction that it has now -- it's just a matter of how.

    Social has changed the means of control away from the business and towards the individual and the win comes from meeting people on their terms and with value rather than pushing things at them.

    I also agree that marketing should ideally be about meeting people on their own terms. But the culture of marketing has changed. It's the reason many join the race in getting more Likes in Facebook. Marketing seems to have evolved into getting people to your site regardless of how you got them there. Businesses, websites, blogs -- all of them want a million visitors because they make more money from that figure than half a million. I guess the ploy is to push people into your site or business regardless of the means, then get them to appreciate the value that you offer. If you have nothing to offer but crap, no marketing strategy will be successful in the long run anyway.

    The best use of Social Media is to show the public the value you offer. Those that look at what you offer as valuable will go a step further and look at your business. No matter what type of promotion you use-- print adverts, public events, tv commercials, or other online promotions -- if you can't show your value, you won't get the business.

    For instance, last year my husband and I went to our local home show. Many booths were passing out free cookies, popcorn, donuts, or candies. However, none of them were bakeries, restaurants, or grocers. I couldn't tell you where any of the "treats" came from today. The booths I remember were those that catered to our interest: the Master Gardener's booth (of course) and two booths that specialized in thermal heating. One of the heating specialists was totally unimpressive. He was vague in his answers to some questions and full of misinformation in answers to others. The other heating specialist was cordial, good-natured, and knew his stuff. If we ever decide to go that route, we will definitely give him a call.

    Online social media is much the same as a huge, International home show. If you are passing out treats to the public that are unrelated to your business, they'll take them, walk away, and forget about you. If you are vague in the information you provide about your business, your potential customers will move on down the line. But if you represent your business in the way that shows its value, they will remember you. Those are the people that will visit your website and if the value they find there is comparable to the value you showed them at the Social Media home show, it is that sector of the public who will become your customers.
