Who knows how they're generated. Could be a script, could just be a person in a room creating fake accounts. It doesn't matter how, what matters is that they're fake.

They are obviously not quality likes, you can usually buy an 100 of them for 10 dollars. But still buying fake likes can be of benefit for two things: Until you don't have 25 likes you are not able to view FB page statistics. People visiting your site might be well impressed by seeing the FB widget that shows 500 likes. Far more impressed than adding fake ...

Facebook does not allow you to link the likes on your site and on your page. In fact, every page on your site can have a different number of likes. Likes cannot be transferred between pages on your site or between your home page and your Facebook page.

The Quick Sprout tool you're using shows you FB Likes and FB Shares for the URL you're analysing. This has nothing to do with how many likes your FB page has. As you can see from Facebook's API ...
