  • 43. Facebook SEO
    What it does: Facebook internal search
    helps users find content; Google and
    Bing also rank Facebook Pages.
    Why it matters: Pages that are well
    defined and optimized will get higher
    rankings both within Facebook and on
    the major search engines.

  • 46. Important To Remember
    Facebook search results are unique to each userYou never know what your friends or just random users will see for any given search query.
    Facebook search is likely to heavily rely on connections: how “close” the user is to each page - how many of their friends Like it or even how many Friends of Friends Like it.
    It relies on exact match: for example, [blogging] versus [bloggers]:

  • 47. Copyright 2011 LLC
    Keyword Rich Page Name
    The name of a Facebook Page is also its actual page title tag ( You can change uptill 100 likes)
    Facebook search is biased to “exact match”: your page will only have a chance to show up if it has the exact word the user types in the search box.
    Rule of thumb: Name your page after your brand without trying to make it too descriptive. BUT make sure to use your full name and break into the separate words
    “Social Media Michigan” is better than “SocialMediaMichigan”
  • 48. Select Right Category
    Make sure to specify Category and Subcategory.
    It will help the listing to be more easily identified in Facebook search results.
    Copyright 2011 LLC
  • 49. Use Info Tab & About Box
    Copyright 2011 LLC
    Fill “About us” box and “Info” tab to describe the business.
    These fields offer more “indexable” content for search engines.
  • 50. Page (In-)Links:
    In Facebook ‘off page’ focuses on having users Like your Page:
    Facebook Like = “vote” for a Page.
    Facebook uses Likes to measure both page popularity and relevancy to each separate user.
    More Likes = More links (search engines love)

    Build Links To Page
  • 51. News Feed Visibility => Edge Rank
    Copyright 2011 LLC
  • 52. Edge Rank Simplified
    Affinity = the relationship between you and each individual fan. That is, how often a fan views and interacts with your Facebook page and individual posts. Plus, how much you engage with your fans: Facebook rewards you for building relationships!
    Weight = typically, photos receive the highest weight, followed by videos, links, status updates and apps. Manual posts receive more weight than posts by apps.
    Time = the more recent your post, the higher your EdgeRank score. A popular piece of content will stay for a longer period of time in the News Feed of your fans.
    Copyright 2011 LLC
  • 53. “Overall, EdgeRank is based on three factors: affinity, weight and relevancy. When multiplied together, they have the ability to push your content to the New Feed’s ‘Top News,’ where fans will be able to see what your brand has to say. For instance, an image with dozens of Comments will have a higher affinity score than a status update with a few ‘Likes.’ In addition, and object’s relevancy will help determine how high it will appear within the ‘Top News.’ Any item that appears within the News Feed — such as a status update or video — is called an object, and any action taken on the object — such as a ‘Like’ or Comment — is called an edge.”

  • 54. The Page Wall:
    Update your regularly (at least a couple of times a week) with content about your niche, domain, business.
    It keeps the page “alive” and keeps both the search engines and the people coming back.
    Wall posts shows up in search engine Facebook search data expires after 30 days
    Page updates show up in both the Auto Suggest and Advanced Facebook search results which makes the Page easier to find.
