It can help you get targeted traffic. Business Pages are public. Note: most of Facebook is private, nestled behind a login, preventing search engines from indexing the content. However, Fan pages are not behind a login and this allows them to get indexed by search engines. The strategy… another link from Google where prospective customers could stumble upon your link in the search engine results page, go to your Facebook Business page, and then visit your “real” site via the link(s) to your facebook pages.
- Pages can include your links. And since the pages are public, you can get some sweet facebook.com link credit. You can’t use an anchor text, but hey, it’s free.
- Newsletter like feature allows you to send “updates to your fans”. One of the best features is that you can send out “updates” to your fan base whenever you want. A really great way to build a database of users interested in your product or service. You can send out messages about new products, website updates, blog and twitter updates, etc.
