Beware of paying for likes, friends and links

With more newsagents relying on Google, Facebook, Twitter and other search engine and social media platforms to drive traffic, there his a temptation to get attention, numbers and followers by paying a service to achieve this for you. My advice – don’t! Paid for eyeballs are of no benefit to your business.

Paid for links to drive traffic to your blog or business website will be seen what what they are. Google and others will mark you down and your competitors will see how desperate you are to get attention.

The most important likes, friends, visits and links you can get are those achieved naturally and because of the good content you provide.
