    AM just curious... I am kinda torn on the idea of spending the time to rank something that I ultimately do not control.. Could get popped at any time.

    Yes it is possible, but there are limitations with how much you can optimize it due to it being a 3rd party.

    Not being rude or anything , but ones your main site is penalised , its mostly the facebook page that will start ranking (if it has the relevant name)

    I have been experimenting with ranking FB pages on Google in competitive niches and it's definitely possible.

    I have a client's site on Google which took me a few months to get to the 2nd page, its CPC is 50$+ in Adwords. I made a Facebook page and started rapidly building links and within a few days it was on the 3rd page. I stopped building links to the Facebook page and suddenly it dropped down to the 9th page. I think as far as ranking FB pages, the biggest factor is link velocity- keep building more and more links and no doubt you will rank. How long you will rank depends on a lot of factors. Updating the FB page daily is an important factor as well. But don't keyword stuff the page, either

    Fanpages Rank Super Easy.

    In my experience they will mostly only rank directly for the title of the page you set up.

    So https://www.facebook.com/ColoradoLimousines

    will rank for "Colorado limousines"

    so if you can get that exact match keyword into your url and title, that page will with a bit of linking start ranking that keyword easily enough.

    Cheers.

    I have, just send keyword related PR links. FaceBook makes great parasites, try it out before Google kills them off during the next update.
