Facebook comments - usefulness for SEO

Discussion in 'Search Engine Optimization' started by Iscander, Sep 20, 2012.

    I'm interested - does Google percieve Facebook comments (standard faceboko plugin) as site's update?
    For example, WP blogs very often use facebook comments - are they important because of pages updating through users comments?

    Nope. Nothing related to facebook page, comments, or posts are useful for SEO. According to me they are quite futile from SEOs perspective and therefore hold no value except for the fact that users of blog or site get an idea that the topics are well read and commented.

    Facebook comments, I don't say any use of it as long as they did not visit your site their comments and their likes are void.

    Facebook comments would only bring traffic to your website based on the comment you have given other than that nothing is useful for SEO

    The Facebook is nofollow website that shows that you can get only relevant traffic and branding for Facebook comments because Google search engine don’t index comments at Facebook.

    It doesn't have any bearing. But, the mere fact that you are getting talked about on Facebook is a really good thing. :)

    Sounding strange to me. I don't think it has an impact on SEO but yes if people finding your comment beneficial then if you have linked your comment with useful link then you can get your traffic diverted. that's it and not more than that

    Look at the source code of the page. I don't use FB comments personally so couldn't tell you. If the comments can be found in the source code, google will consider it as content on the page, and it can help with SEO and getting discovered for long tail traffic.

    Facebook comments are useless for seo but they can boost your site traffic as long as you post them in targeted facebook pages.

    You can visit my facebook fan page in order to find out the latest news in link-building.

    Good luck in your link-building strategy!
