    Is it right way to buy followers on Facebook, Twitter and other social networks to get traffic and how does Google react to this kind of activities?

    I definitely wouldn't recommend buying followers on any social network. The point of having a high number of followers, is to convert these into customers. The likelihood is that if you buy followers, they won't care about your brand, so therefore they won't interact, engage or purchase from you. It really isn't worthwhile.
    You can gain high numbers of followers other ways; by engaging on the network with your existing followers and interacting with influencers in your industry. In terms of Facebook, i would recommend facebook advertising; you can run this for a small cost and make it very targeted so only your relevant demographic are receiving the ads... once they have then liked the page, you know that your 'fans' are people who are more likely to interact with you and turn into customers due to the fact that they are your target demographic.

    I may say that you can buy a small number of followers for each social network in order to have some "impression" in the front of the real customers. But to buy just to build up your network is useless because there will be just dead meat and will help only for "fake statistics".

    Followers that are bought are usually dropped within a matter of weeks or months, but it can be a cheap and quick fix to see your Social Media numbers up. It's like being verified on Twitter, when you see that blue check mark you're more inclined to follow the person than you usually would. Same goes with the number of followers you have.

    I love Twitter, but it's full to the brim with sheeple.

    Why should you buy followers or likes?
    Do you need that? I don't think so, you need real followers or costumer.

    I agree with all above; buying followers will not benefit you. Instead, you should be active in your social media profiles.

    My opinion is to let the things to go naturally. Buying bulk followers is not as sweet as it seems. So many people are subjected to fraud in doing so.
    Work sincerely and people will follow you naturally if they find something good in you.

    No it's not wrong! Sometimes you need that little bit of a boost for people to notice you! Who is going to follow a page with 5 likes? Not many!
    I think it's ok!
    Just as in SoundCloud, sometimes you need a boost to your account! Shameless promo of my sig! ;)

    Bought likes don't translate into real customers, though. Would you need it just to form a first impression and get real customers liking your page? I think it's better to let things progress naturally, but mostly I just don't think it would be that useful. You say "buy likes to get traffic," but if you don't have real likes and a real audience, it likely still won't get you the traffic you want.

    Perhaps initially purchasing followers / likes can be advantageous in order to create some social proof for your site. However, once you are at a decent level, I think it is best to let things progress naturally (but strategically). Fake followers are useless in the long term.

    If you will buy followers... Most of guys will give you fake followers from follower sharing websites like addmefast and many more... It will be no worth... If you really need followers you can visit these site make your account and increase followers by yourself... No need to buy.... But believe me those followers will not be active after a short period of time... But to show client, it will look good that you will have lots of followers for your business...

    It's all about on you I think there is nothing wrong in buying followers for your promotions you can promote your products by doing this but I also think that it's not much beneficial because the followers you are buying are not real or they didn't like your product in reality so the point is you are making fake followers for your brands.

    Couldn't agree more! But there are many who like to bloat their chest to show they are the man! ;)
