Around the 8th of Dec our new likes went from a steady average of 60-80 new day to about 2,500 new a day and have been an average 2,000 new every day until 3 days ago when it started to decrease a little bit but still beeing 1,500+. Thing is I can’t find anything on-page or in statistics that are explaining this, our post likes, comments and shares have gone up a bit but nothing that would explain this abrupt flood of new likes.
We recently changed the way we did some of the posting and that was around the same time the likes started to increase. I can imagine a little bit of the new likes is due to that and this is also represented by the slightly increase in engagement. But still to me it seems like all these new likes comes from nowhere when looking at the statistics!
Here’s some screens from our page insight, please take a look and let me know what you guys think about it?
My point of view is that buying likes for your page dos not helps because those fans do not get engaged in your page activities so best is to experimenting.
I have an article for you to read this might help in growing your fan page. <snip>
I appreciate you’re trying to help, but please read the thread carefully before replying. kungknas is not thinking about buying likes, or asking for ideas to gain more followers. The problem is that somebody else seems to have been buying likes without kungknas’s knowledge.
Nope, unfortunately nothing more then what the insight is telling me.
That wouldn’t give much, as our daily website traffic actually is less then the daily new likes!(?) …and traffic of website and social media integration is unchanged since before the likes started to increase.
And highly unlikely as we rank #1 on pretty much all kw’s in our niche and our website got about the same unique visitors as our fb page currently got new likes so I don’t think there actually is a website with the right type of traffic/following to be able to generate 2000 likes a day to our fb through a link.
Nope, not the one managing it, we got a social media manager doing all the posting for us. Doing an ad campaign that generate this much new likes would cost A LOT, and it would also be visible in the insight as paid likes but there is none.
And yeah, I’ve noticed that the majority is from mobiles, but they say 40-50% of all fb traffic is mobile so I don’t feel that is anything odd…or?
BUT…what is odd is the last 3 days shift in the like sources, check out the insight for the 8th and 9th:
Since this started mobile has made up about 50% of the new likes everyday, and the last 2 days it has only been 2-3% …and been replaced with page suggestions instead.
…that doesn’t feel like a natural behaviour, but then again nothing do about this. And yesterday we “only” had 722 new likes, gonna be interesting to see what today stops at. Maybe the “package” someone has probably bought to our page is up!?
OK - this is probably a really silly question. (I don’t use Facebook, so I don’t know much about it.) Is it possible that someone/thing has been “liking” the wrong page? Is it possible that there is another page with a name very similar to yours - perhaps just a single letter difference - and they may currently be wondering why all the likes they paid for haven’t shown up?
