Businesses rely on online presence and one way of achieving this is through Facebook. Getting Facebook page indexed in Google can be a challenge.
If a company is looking to be found in search engines, it won’t happen with a Facebook page. You cannot apply SEO to it and Google and the other search engines cannot index or find your page. Organic SEO traffic is eliminated right off the bat. On the other hand, with a real domain and website, SEO techniques can be applied properly and your website can be found in the search engines. SEO companies should know, they do it everyday.
Making your images and now videos visible to Google’s search engine spiders is imperative. Give them keyword rich titles and tags. After your fan page has 25 Likes, Facebook gives your you the ability to create a unique URL (or usernames as Facebook calls them) for the page. Because URLs are heavily weighted by search engines, it is vital that your fan page URL reflects an aspect of your business. Creating a unique URL/Username for your Facebook business fan page is an available function after your page has more than 25 likes. Google loves keyword rich URLs and don’t forget the URL reflects what your business does.
Here’s a quick example: Title: Facebook fan page name Meta Description: FB fan page name & About page Try including Facebook fan page name in your H1, H2 tags. Of course, this is not to say that Facebook pages are useless. In fact, they can be very useful as a compliment to your company website. By linking to your Facebook page from your website, you can drive users to your page and you can communicate with them through the social networking features which Facebook provides. It is highly recommended to have a Facebook page in conjunction with your website.
More obviously including contact details and a link to the relevant website is a must. Many people forget completely to do this and suffer as a consequence. Also indexing for local search engine results is imperative for Facebook SEO. Inbound links to your Facebook fan page from other sources including your website, YouTube etc. will help you get ranked higher in search engines. Make sure you link back from you Twitter profile and use a share box on your website.
