Do "Public" notes on a person's Facebook page rank well in Google if strongly keyword oriented?

0 votes
I was actually just deleting some personal notes and wondered about this. FB is the kind of place with lots of clout. So I wondered... any experience with this?

I could be wrong about this, but I have noticed a few times when searching for information on myself that different stuff that I posted on FB comes up.  I am not sure if it is because of the search for my name or the keywords that I have used in the notes.

That would be a good experiment to try.  Make a decent keyword related public note and then check the search engines in a day or two to see what comes up in your search for those keywords.

When I find the time I think this is something that I will try myself.

It'd be worth checking in an "incognito" window. The likelihood that your stuff from "anywhere" will show up is greater if you're logged into your gmail or other google account!

Good point @Info Guy. It would need to be a fresh search without being logged into any of the social networks or gmail.

That goes for cell phone searches as well. The google android phone that I have seems to favor results that show up when I am logged into gmail, which is always logged in on my phone for email notifications and such.

I am not certain if the KW's get ranked. However, depending on what you type into the google search engine, will often produce all sources including social media. I would be interested to see if  it was for the KW's, or based upon the phrase or even the persons name.

Often, I will see public messages that a person types into FB, if I am searching the name. I tested this for some KWs and did not seem to get the same results for that same person coming from FB.

I will be keeping my eye on this question, as this could be a good method that might have just gotten discovered!! Thanks Info Guy for bringing this topic up.

Hope my answer helps this question

Facebook notes get indexed in Google. Just like a page on a wordpress blog,video on YouTube,content on a Facebook fan page,etc.
Thanks tyronne for the comment, and letting us know that. I learned something new yet again with this forum.
Oh yah, no problem.

I have not tested this. But I will probably do an experiment when I have the time.

But here is what I think. A Facebook page is just like any other pages that are indexed in the search engine. So how do you get other pages to rank? Well, you just build backlinks to that page.

So if you build backlinks to your Facebook page or you get enough people to like your page, it can probably get ranked too.

Seems like a good idea. However I find it hard to post my links in notes. I think we have to paste the anchor link code by ourselves, as FB notes does not have that option yet.
