Does Facebook have anything to do with seo?

The short answer is yes FB has implications on rankings. The big question is how you use it.

1) Improve the placement of your FB page
2) Trying to use FB to improve the placement of your website.

If your goal is #1, then there are various traditional SEO activities you can do. You then need to concern yourself with what people can do once they get there.

If you are only worried about #2, then the only thing to do is to get the FB pages ranked more highly, so that the few links to your website are worth more.

In either case you’re going to be building the prominence of the FB page, but why you are doing it is the most critical question to answer. This will determine your course of action.

3PRIME Helps New Site Soar in the Rankings

Only two months ago we began working for a site which was launched in August of 2010. And since beginning work for them, their new website has gone from nowhere, to first page for their top 2-word phrase. The services we performed for the site included consulting, on-page SEO optimization and link building through press releases and article submissions.

And we’re not done! For the final month of our engagement, 3PRIME will be employing targeted reciprocal link building. So far it’s looking very promising that this site, which isn’t even a year old, could rank #1 for its most competitive 2 word phrase.

Our company has recently launched a new website for Washington, D.C.-area sign maker Kerley. Kerley Signs has been around for about 4 decades, and has handled clients from every walk of life – churches, schools, restaurants, government agencies, banks, auto shops, retail businesses, and really, anything else you can think of.

In addition to a visual redesign, a dozen new pages have been added with hundreds of images, showing the diversity and quality of the company’s work. Business signs, electronic signs, church and school signs, and signs for government institutions are all there for the prospective customer. Everyone is invited to see the wonderful examples of the sign-maker’s art.

3-Prime Client Gets Google Boost

Gay Friendly SourceGayFriendlySource.com, a 3-Prime client, recently got a big boost when its name became included in the Google search auto-complete list. If the user begins typing “gay friendly,” our friends’ website is the number 4 suggestion on the list. This is a remarkable boon to a relatively new website, and goes to show that even recent start-ups can quickly become noticed and achieve a good ranking on Google.

Get Business with Google Places

In 2010, we started optimizing our client’s Google places locations, or claiming them if they were the automated ones with little customization.

One such page was one for Eagle Rivet, one of our ct web design clients. One of the phrases we built in was ct roof snow removal, and they couldn’t be happier with the seasonal jobs they’ve gotten to pick up as a result!

Don’t over look this for your business! Here’s why:

  • The top Google places results are shown at the top or above natural results
  • Google Places provide functionality like reviews that can help you sell customers before they call
  • Google places doesn’t require a website!

SEO Press Releases

We use SEO focused press releases to build links for our customers, some as the situation demands and others on a regular bi-weekly or monthly basis.

Here are 3 recent examples:

1) Paris Food Markets Iphone App

2) Floormall implements customer friendly features

3) A shelter for your vintage car

Those are for 3 different customers, and while what we do for each business is different, our SEO press releases usually include:

  • You provide us with the major points of your upcoming news release.
  • We’ll write a release that describes your news in appropriate terms and offers the necessary keyword text for the links we’ll be adding.
  • We’ll send this to you to edit.
  • Once we get it back we’ll tweak as necessary and perform a submission.
  • We code in up to 3 links to your website with the link text that we are targeting for you.
  • The submission pushed the SEO PR out to about 85 websites.
  • Usually about 30 pick it up and about half of those publish the 3 links we put in the release
  • We’ll send you a report about 3 business days after we submit with the URLs of all sites that picked it up.

Our service uses a wide submission for sites that are all press release focused and offer the opportunity to submit links in the release.

Are 3PRIMEs SEO tactics specific to Google?

We had a question recently we thought we’d share:

Are there SEO tactics in our program (or not) that are specific to any of the primary engines? If so, please elaborate.

We focus on Google, reasons illustrated here!

Specifically, we monitor and exploit methods that can be shown currently to demonstrate benficial results in Google.

In general, we never do anything that will hurt rankings in other engines and we employ tactics that generally support a beneficial user experience, which is the appropriate philosophy for providing effective SEO services.
