Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

If you’re looking to enhance your company and or personal web page in the SERP (search engine results pages) you definitely should consider making yourself a Facebook Fan page. A facebook fan page can be beneficial in your marketing efforts as you work to move your site up within the natural search engine rankings. There are numerous reasons you should consider a fan page including

1-     Although the search engines cannot spider most facebook pages because they are privacy protected they can spider those facebook fan pages that don’t require you to login. If a spider from one of the popular search engines (Google, Yahoo, and Bing) spider your page and then index your page you can pick up a link. Hopefully it may lead to someone clicking on that link and landing on your site.

2-     Because the pages are public you will get facebook link credit even though you cannot use anchor text. Either way it’s free. Link credits are essential if your attempting to search optimize your site.

3-     A nice feature of a fan page is that you can send updates to your fans and it’s a great tool to build a database of interested followers.

4-     You have total control over the page unlike some blogs. You decide what content you put on your fan page.

5-     It’s free and easy and you can upload your company or personal logo.

6-     It’s as great tool for those companies that offer search engine optimization (SEO) or paid search management (also called Pay Per Click or Cost Per Click).
