    Which is better to have on your website?
    is it the facebook "like" button where people actually Like the website and then
    the website appears on their facebook page. OR is it better to have a
    facebook fan page and have the fan page like button on your site? What are
    the benefits of each ? do any help Seo or anything like that even in a tiny way? Whats everyones opinions

    It is better to have a fan page with like button so people can see your website. Nobody likes before seeing anything.

    I always use a like box that links to my Facebook Page.

    e.g. My domain www.mydomain.com has a like box that has url http://www.facebook.com/mypage

    This is the way all big companies do it. By doing that you can inform your users that liked your page with status updates. If you have a like box with no url or url of http://www.mydomain.com then there is no way contacting the users that liked your page back.

    It is simple and clear...

    Is better have one page and a like button in every post/page.

    If you run a fan page, every update you make just appear in your fan's wall and it could generate new likes, shares and new traffic for your website.

    If you put a like button in every post/page of your website, every visitor who enjoyed your content will click on "like/share" and a link to your page/post will appear on visitor's wall.

    Yeah, I agree

    Have fanpage like box on the sidebar, and have like button on each post on the blog.

    That ways, you can take the benefit of both ! ;)

    The Like on your page can generate much richer share than a like on a Fanpage, you have the control what and how it get shared rich media,video ...
    Inside facebook nearly no one will recognize that the page get liked.
    and beside the likes there is a seo benefit too for the page
    just my 5 cents
