    Default Large increase in Facebook Likes this week

    Has anyone else seen a large increase in your facebook likes this week? I've had my facebook page for 3 years now and my likes went from 128 to 180 this week. While I am flattered none of the likes are from people close to my house, they're all in other states or other countries which makes me wonder where all this traffic coming from. I have not even posted any 2014 videos or done anything else to market myself.

    The only thing that changed is I let my GoDaddy Hosting expire and redirected my domain to my facebook page. But I never thought I had any traffic on my webpage and it always had a facebook like link so I can't imagine that had anything to do with it.

    Wow - I was going to ask the same thing! I also recently put a "Like us" link on my GoDaddy hosted web page and started seeing tons of likes now. I think I got around 50 over the past week or so...

    Hi guys my name is Simon and I live in the UK
    Your increased likes on Facebook could be from people like myself, I have not been into christmas very much but i do love Halloween but I have noticed a dramatic increase this Xmas in the amount of lights being put up this year, nothing compared to what we see in your country but for us Brits its a giant leap from what we are used to.
    After searching youtube and Facebook watching your videos which are amazing by the way, I hit the like button on everyone I watch, the problem I have is getting the hardware like renard is just not available in this country
    I browse this fantastic site to be inspired and inspired I am every time
    So please keep doing what you do so well and we Brits will keep hitting the like button
    Many thanks

    I have had the same thing. I thought it was odd too. I have had likes from many people out of my general geographical area too.

    Simon, welcome to DIYC!

    Sometimes, you will get likes on your page, which may be bots. They will just like your page, then weeks from now, make a spam post or comment. There's no real way to tell who is real and who isn't until they do that. Its just an annoying thing you then have to go in and block/report them.

    Here is my like report:



    If I had a page with 100,000 likes, this would be a blip but this makes up nearly half my like count in total... just weird. I've looked at who is liking it and a few seem legit but most are from all over the place. One thing I've noticed is that many have nothing but FB game posts on their pages - kind of a qwinky-dink to me...

    First, Welcome Simon! I really hope you are right that lots of people are just getting into the holiday decorating spirit. (Unfortunately I do not think that is the case)

    Thanks for all the replies, so the consensus is this is a weird phenomenon, and I am not the only one. Since I posted the OP this morning I have had another 13 likes so no things are not slowing down for me yet. I have looked threw several of the people and they do appear to be real, not bot accounts (old accounts with extensive posts, family trees, pictures...). I guess it could still be possible that they were hacked and they have a bot liking things on their behalf.

    I don't think we should do it publicly so does anyone with this phenomenon want to private message me say the last 5 people who liked your facebook page? I can cross reference and see if they match my likes.

    Hopefully there is really nothing strange going on, Simon is right, and there is just a bunch of new interest in our hobby.
