Before reading this, it is important to note that buying Facebook “likes” is usually a bad idea. It is tempting to use money to purchase fans, but it rarely works in your favor.
I got an email the other day (remember this was back in 2012) from boostlikes.com saying they can help me get more page likes for my Facebook Page. According to them, they put ads on their big websites promoting my Facebook page and when they reach the number paid for, they pull it off. If this is what they do, then it is an amazing service.
To be honest, I have a lot of doubts about the service of boostlikes.com. I have hired companies/people in the past to build up fan pages, and they all used fake accounts. The numbers went up, but no one looked at the page. Having a thousand likes for a page helps build social proof, but I personally only am looking for people who will be interested in my projects (in this case the Madman of Magic Comic Book).
The truth is that I will not know how good this companies service is till I try it, and you will know too once I post my review. I have used several other products that I assumed could be a scam and was pleasantly surprised at the quality. I am hoping boostlikes.com is going to be one of those cases.
I did do a quick google search of ” www.bootslikes.com ” and most of the sites have to do with data on the site statistics (ranking, age, domain owner, etc.on). The two that do talk about the site do not say anything good about it.
- uk.answers.yahoo.com someone comments that for boostlikes.com the “Web of Trust has no ratings for them whatsoever…be very leery…..”
- On chacha.com someone asked about the site and the response was ” bootslikes.com does not have a good rating. People say that you should not trust the website”
Neither of these sites are authority sites on the subject and both answers suggest they never tried the site out. My solution is to give boostlikes.com a chance and I will report my findings back to you!
I did not have a great experience with the company. They did give the likes I requested, but they were not active on my page.
