    Dear all;

    We're trying to move a Facebook Page one place higher (higher than a forum in position 2).

    Will backlinks actually help or do they not apply to social network sites?

    Short answer: Yes, but it depends.
    Long answer: Backlinks vary in types, some are good, some are not. I think it will be best to use organic backlinks in diversity. I mean, build many backlinks from various platform will help you rank safe. To me, a unique article on a unique blog is the best.
    Outdated comments backlinks or junk profiles just drag your sites down to sandbox with zero chance of return.
    Stay safe and be successful, my friend.

    Hi sl1985.

    Yes, backlinks will definitely help!

    As the rule of a thumb states, the more good inbound links a page has, the more authoritative it looks in search engines' eyes. This same principle applies to all Facebook fan pages. Hence, we advice you to build relevant and authoritative links to your Facebook fan page - just make sure that those links come from high-quality, relevant domains and have diverse anchor text.


    Besides, you should also add a link to your 'Facebook' fan page from such channels as your website, blog, and Twitter profile, etc.. - if people like your content, they will 'like' your Facebook fan page - thus you will increase your following, which, in turn, will have positive effect on your fan page rankings.

    Also,note that onpage SEO is also important for Facebook fan pages. These are the areas to focus on:



    • title: it should be short and contain the name of your brand or your targeted keywords.
    • meta description: should contain your fan page name and a short but informative description of it.
    • H1: the name of your page - can be your brand and/or your main keywords (if possible).

    And, if you business targets local niches, it is crucially important to fill in such fields as Address, City, State, and Zip. Plus, when promoting a page for product-related searches, please provide info on Company Overview, Mission, and Products.

    All this will help you rank your Facebook fan page higher.

    Hope you find this info useful.

    A FB page is just a web page in google SERPs.

    Within FB though external links won't make a difference(yet).

    As previously said yes.

    But, you should try doing that for your G+ page. Besides the fact that it will rank faster (go figure), it will boost your website's authority as well.
