Back in the early days of Facebook and Blogging the Notes feature in Facebook was actually used quite a bit by many people. Posting blogs, long-form updates and more.
However, over the past few years there has not been much about Notes, nor have many users been writing anything to Notes. It was not a very attractive forum to post a blog and limited with who could view the Note.
Originally Notes were just a simple white page, with the ability to add a photo and the Note could be found in a separate section on the personal profile. It never really caught on for many users.
If you have a business website, you probably want it to show up high on Google’s Search results. Even more important, you probably want it to attract customers. Before tearing your hair out trying to optimize your old website, no matter how much you paid for it, it might be time for a new one. Here are some questions to ask:
- Are you mobile-friendly?
This is probably the most important question you can ask about your website. More people are looking at websites on mobile devices than on desktops. Google has announced that it may not display non-mobile-friendly websites in mobile search results. While you could keep the old site and add a separate mobile site, there is a cost involved with the mobile site. You will likely have to pay for a new domain name and a hosting fee. Fresh content, so important to Google, will be more difficult when you have to update two sites. Since Google punishes “duplicate content,” there is a risk when adding the same content to a mobile and traditional website. (Check your website with Google’s Mobile-Friendly Test)
A few days ago I wrote a blog about Facebook’s Business Page Updates. Besides posting it on my personal blog, I submitted it to an online magazine (Business2Community) where it garnered a lot of shares. In fact, it was featured on B2C’s home page under the heading “Popular Today.” Cool.
Want Page 1 Google Results?
Because I was a little curious about whether that “popularity” would translate to high rank on Google, I put the phrase “Facebook Announces Business Page Updates” in the Google search box. I thought the B2C article or my blog post might end up near the top, even though this announcement was very well covered in many Social Media Blogs, Magazines and other media.
