How do facebook fanpages work on SEO?

Discussion in 'Search Engine Optimization' started by MervikHaums, Jan 4, 2010.

    Hey friends,

    I expect some expert advice from those who have experience with facebook. We can see lots of threads in our buy-sell-trade section offering services to promote fan pages and FB groups.

    But how exactly these can help our websites in terms of search engine optimization? Though I have both a fan page and group I get only a few hits from them to my site.

    Expecting some advices.
    Thanks

    I'd love an explanation as well since I know G can't index FB profile information.

    How are fan pages different?

    What a better idea is when using Facebook for promotion is to have many friends: example if your providing cheap link building services your friends can be SEO companies or people which are interested in SEO and would like to use your services.

    After you can post your link on all their Facebook home pages and this will generate huge traffic to your site. Notice that the traffic will be only for a short time but it can help to generate some sales, depends what you are selling.

    facebook may develop more as an indexed site in the future, but for now you actually have to build legitimate fan pages, marketing type stuff is borderline worthless on a true social network

    Links from facebook pages are nofollow, so it doesn't help seo in that way - but it does give you another listing in serps (the people who say pages or profiles don't get indexed are talking rubbish - you can choose not to have them indexed, if you don't want them to be).
    Using social media pages like this is a good way to make sure that your brand dominates the 1st page of serps for your name - a classic reputation management technique.

    I think the fresh content in the facebook fanpage in form of notes or status update helps you to optimize your page for google search results.

    The Facebook traffic can be pushed to your site, you can use the pages that are already there or make your own one. The key here is the fresh and relevent updates. Thanks.

    Yes, it does have SEO value. Posts and notes you add through the Notes application. Helps to link back to your site from your Facebook page.

    Google gives high Priority to social links since the panda update. That is also the reason why they launch Google+ back in 2011.
