Social Media – robots like it too.

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

Guess who’s checking out your Tweets and reading your Facebook business page these days – Googlebot, the automated system Google uses for collecting information from the web.

Googlebot is looking at your posts and tweets to see what keywords you use, how consistently you communicate with your audience – even the friends and followers you have.

And Googlebot is not alone, other robots from other search engines are also looking at social media – and that includes other networks like Google+ and LinkedIn. These different channels are being considered when a search engine decides who gets the top spot for a search.
In fact, the network Google+ has received some attention recently because it’s postings seeming to have extra weight with Google searches.

TIP: Don’t get lazy! Posting the same thing to different social media sites is not the best idea.

Feel free to post about the same topic – but change the wording. Search engines like to see a variety of content and people (yes, we still care about people too) don’t like to see things that look out of place (like posting your Tweet to your Facebook page).

Happy Posting!

Facebook Fan Page Website Design

Friday, May 28th, 2010

You already know about Facebook, everybody does.

What you might not know are the Cold Hard FACTS about Facebook. Did you know, Facebook has over 400 Million users and Growing? Thats equal to the size of the entire population of the United States of America and Mexico. Combined!

And of those 400+ Million users, did you know that half of them log onto FaceBook EVERYDAY SINGLE DAY?

And that the Average Facebook user spends 13.3 hours per month, which is an average of 26 minutes per day!
And I can personally vouch for this seeing as I have a teenage daughter, who spends at least tripple this amount of time on Facebook.

So what are all these people doing while on Facebook? Well…

They’re connecting with their Facebook friends. They’re uploading and commenting on photos, status updates and videos. They’re creating and interacting with groups and events and they’re liking facebook Fan Page Websites.

So maybe you’ve already on Facebook and have a profile, but you might be asking… “What’s a Facebook Fan Page?”

I’m glad you asked.

A Facebook Fan Page Website or “Official Page Website” as Facebook has just renamed them is a page anyone can create for their local business, brand, organization or even an artist, band or public figure.

Just to get familiar, let’s talk about some famous and popular Facebook Fan Pages:

For example, the Official Fan Page of movie star Ben Stiller has over 1 million people who like his page. Yet, when you look at the navigation bar of this Fan Page Website there is nothing promoting his current movie, next movie, nor is there any interesting way to interact with him. It could be better, more interactive and much more profitable.

Another example is the Official Fan Page for the band Pink Floyd. They’ve got almost 3 million fans who “Like” their Facebook Fan Page, that’s huge. Yet there is NO way purchase their latest box set or buy products that promote this legendary band… Such a shame.

Then there is the Official Fan Page for the music artist Johnny Cash. Good ole Johhny has over 1.5 million fans, nice work Johnny! Yet, In the navigation bar there is no way for fans to sign up to get updates. They can’t buy the “Essential Johnny Cash” album or his “Flippin The Bird” T-Shirt. So… Johnny… call us and we’ll hook you up.

And lastly… the block buster Movie Titanic has an Official Facebook Fan Page that has around 3 million fans. Remember, this was one of the biggest blockbusters of all time. Yet, it has no way for fans to buy the 10th anniversary edition DVD or the 3-Disc special collectors edition. James Cameron is missing out on thousands of dollars in lost sales… right from Facebook!

Ok… So what is similar about each of these Facebook Fan Pages? Yes… they all have a HUGE amount of fans.
Yet… the thing I find most important and disturbing… is that… they all Look The Same!

If you put them all up on the same page, from that perspective… It’s almost impossible to tell them apart from one another.

Not only is this BORING… It’s bad for business because it’s NOT distinguishing, memorable or profitable.

Some better examples of professionally made custom Facebook Fan Page Websites from big brand companies you already know about include the Fan Page Website for Starbucks.

Starbucks is a company that GETS Social Media. They’ve made it so you can interact with and monitor your Starbucks account right on Facebook. You can Manage and RELOAD your balance from this Fan Page Website. Get it? Right from Facebook… you can send Starbuck MORE of your money. It’s a brilliant marketing strategy! Right?

There is another one that is even better… It’s the Fan Page for the Twilight Saga movies. They’ve made it so you can engage in live chat or watch a video preview. They’ve also got a quiz you can take, a poll to see what character you are and they’ve even got their twitter stream embedded directly into their Fan Page Website. It’s all perfect for connecting with the Twilight community.

So… what if you don’t have a $17 Million Dollar Marketing Budget like these Fortune 500 Big Brand Companies?

Not to worry.

Thats where Fan Page Websites can help. But before I tell you how you can easily and affordably have a Facebook Fan Page for your business or organization let’s first take a quick review of the facts about Facebook and why these facts are important to you.

• Again, Facebook has over 400 Million users, its growing like wild fire
• of those 400 million, 200 Million Users log onto Facebook every day
• and the average person is spending around 26 minutes interacting on Facebook, it’s astounding!
• What’s More, 100 Million people access Facebook directly from their mobile device, like their iPhone, Blacberry, Driod or iPad. and these numbers are ever increasing.
• What’s also important to know is that the Average Facebook User has around 130 friends
