    Are facebook pages especially hard to rank for? I don't see many in the SERPs, does this mean its not possible?

    Gotta be honest, never managed to get the one for the company I work for to rank, and I've never really seen many come up in searches (but the fact that some do certainly implies it IS possible...), one thing I do know is they can gain page rank (or at least the two plug ins i use to view page rank think they can lol)

    Spiders don't rank Facebook pages because you need to be logged in to see them. When I'm on a system that's never logged in to FaceBook every FB I click goes to a login page.

    Clear your cookies (or create a new user on your system). Try it and you'll see. Search engines try to avoid data that's behind walls. FB marketing is for FB users: since there are so many millions of people on there it's a great strategy. But it's useless for increasing your profile in the outside world.

    Hi zerodtk,

    Congrats on that. Could you tell us what is the competition of the keyword you are ranking for?

    Thanks,
