Facebook Shares Are They Real Or Fake?

Last Update: July 14, 2017

I am beginning to wonder if people are clicking on the share button for the hell of it or are they really sharing my posts?. I created a post and I posted the link on google plus and I refreshed the page of the post and I had like 14 shares at the time. But then I look at my stats and there wasn't really a spike in traffic.

For you to actually share a post you have to login to facebook and then share it. So I am beginning to wonder if people are clicking on the share button just to drive the count up.

I am wasting my time if people are just clicking the share button and seeing no traffic. Or should I even worry about it.

I would like your thoughts on this..

I wouldn't worry about it. Just keep producing quality content, share it on social media, and do not concern yourself with traffic totals. Eventually after several months the "real" traffic totals will go up.

There's only certain things you can control, so I wouldn't worry too much about it. Keep churning out quality content, 2-3 posts per week, optimizing them as much as you can, and keep moving forward :)
