  • At this point we will actually get everyone set up with a facebook page. It is a bad strategy to try to make the page name be what people will search for - because 1> it is very spammy which defeats the goal of being trustworthy. 2 > it is a waste of time because an exact match is not necessary; more weight is given by popularity.   Using a your name plus your service would generally be a good idea. Or a page name that is your registered trademark.
  • While we spend 15 minutes setting up these other people, let’s give you guys something useful to do….
  • This is probably the order you want to do it in…. Some things WITHIN facebook…. VANITY URL’s Once logged into Facebook follow these simple steps: Go to www.facebook.com/username Select “Select a Username” for your page This brings up a drop down menu, select the page you want to create the username for. If your page has the needed 25 fans it will bring up a box . Enter your desired username and click on “check availablilty” If it’s available, you will be shown some final terms – if you are happy with your choice click “confirm” or select “cancel” to try another one.
  • Authority is BESTOWED upon you The importance of the sites linking to you and the number of fans/followers/readers/visitors determines your authority This is the ultimate DEMOCRATIC MEDIUM
  • Thank you to Annie.
