    Hello all, my name is Lewis and today me and 3 of my close friends decided to make a Facebook page dedicated to all kinds of media (mainly memes, vines and facts). The reason for this is, Facebook pages like this usually get a lot of attention daily by all kinds of people. I know that working in this niche is a hard task... but I have noticed how quite a few pages have gone up in likes over a matter of a few weeks time. Now let us move onto my / our plan on how we will build and then profit from this page!

    The Short Plan!

    Our plan is simple, it is to make the Facebook page rank with the prepared keywords which I have chosen before hand (I know more about SEO and keywords than the others), this ensures that we would be found even if people were looking for a
    similar popular page. Then use our content with web 2.0 to create backlinks to drive up our rankings! Then we would work out how to monetize it, I was thinking of using ad networks like AdSense on a Wordpress website where our content would be hosted eventually along with creating new Facebook Pages and getting our users to follow them (I have noticed this kind of thing quite a lot with most big pages!) which could then expand profits by traffic to the website or we could even sell those pages to kids who are trying to show off to their friends...

    What has already been done!

    We made the page and invited all of our friends who like similar pages and have already achieved the 25 likes we need for the custom name/url, this is going to contain our keywords so when people search for those keywords in Google it would rank our page too!, I tested this to see if it had worked for other pages which are already popular and as I had predicted it had. I tested with a page which had 9 million likes and it was ranked top for just the 2 keywords which were in its name. (Of course this is with many backlinks, shares and so forth) but either way this gave me motivation to continue with using the specific keywords in our name we have chosen as our page name. We are currently working on getting our traffic up!


    What will been done!

    The rest of the next few weeks is going to be used to start building backlinks and more traffic with all the popular web 2.0 sites, I am currently using Pinterest to pin our photos so it may bring traffic that way. The next step after that is to start create original content which is going to be game based, I had an idea of funny kills on games like "Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas and Dishonored" (Of course this is also easily done with just using YouTube videos and doing some editing to them to make them funny!). These videos would be around 7 to 15 seconds long like the typical vine but of course with more manageability! This will then allow us to post them on our Facebook page and then sharing them to create backlinks on Twitter, YouTube as montages (page link in the description), Pinterest (sharing from YouTube) and eventually we could also start posting them on a blogspot blog! (then use Pinterest and backlink them as well).

    Update!
    ---------

    Today I have done a lot of backlinking and created a Tumblr profile which will be integrated with the Facebook Page, this way we can post content on there and have it automatically post onto our page! We also posted quite a fair amount of content and got good user interaction feedback!

    I also checked where our page ranked on our keywords in the Facebook search and it was in the suggested ones!


    Today's Results

    Facebook Likes: +19
    Backlinks made: 20
    Total Facebook Likes: 44

    Tomorrows Plan

    Quite like yesterdays plan really, building up the audience and the user interactivity!
    I am thinking about setting up a separate Twitter account for the page as well to improve traffic and to get us noticed!
