Requesting likes, 1s, pins, shares, retweets, etc.?
A couple of months ago Themrj asked a similar question here:
I just want to elaborate on it a little bit and ask if that's OK to do what I'm proposing.
My idea is to create a blog post here at WA, which purpose will be to ask members of our community to click those social media buttons on a specific page. It will work like this:
1. I put a link to a page on my Website (in comments), on which I want to see a "social boost" (read: an increase in number of Likes, Shares, +1s, etc.) and ask WA members to visit my page and do it.
2. I then click social media buttons on at least 10 pages posted by other WA members in the comments of this post.
3. Our Websites rank better in search engines and we become more successful online.
Now, I'm not sure if it's a good idea and if it will actually work as intended, as there's probably a good reason to why there's no such post here. Maybe I just missed it, so please point me out if you know of one.
Let me know what you think about it and if there are no rules against it I'll gladly create this post.
