    If you are trying to get links from facebook to help you rank some page, don't bother, facebook links are nofollow; nofollow links don't pass juice or anchor.

      That is true in that no PR will be flowed as PR has stopped flowing. But it still builds DA and PA overall and counts towards your social signals count.

      Others are right you need to be active and engaging and engage users constantly and use call to actions with lots of high quality relevant content, images, videos etc or just your own sites posts etc.

      Joining other similar pages and networking through them and groups as well as each new like or share is another vote for your site in the long run.

        Facebook links are not just nofollow.
        They are nonexistent to google.

        Group? Groups are not even public, like just
        about everything else on facebook.

        Facebook seo would be an oxymoron, with
        emphasis on moron.

        DA? How is something nonexistent going to add to DA?

        BTW: Google does not see DA, PA, or social signals like FB.

        You people have zero idea how the internet, google, and FB work.

          So what if they are not public that doesn't mean they can't be used to improve your sites SEO as far as Google sees. Google sees the traffic coming from Facebook groups in Analytics....

          WRONG! Good uses your PA and DA as a way of ranking your site. The same way as it looks at your age and domain life age. This is not about what Facebook sees anyway. In your attempt to talk down your nose at me you have failed to see the wood for the trees.

            You are an example of the blind leading the blind. Anything not viewable to google,
            or any other crawler......will have zero effect on SEO.

            The question was, facebook for SEO.

            Yes, I checked. Query was for facebook for seo.

            Again, no such thing. No matter how clueless people slice it,
            FB has zero effect on SEO. Period.

            Yeah I know. You heard a guy who knew a guy who said a guy who
            saw a guy say something about facebook. By the time it reached
            your ears, it was facebook and seo.

            Get a grip on reality.

            PA and DA are looked at by google for rankings???????????????????????
            Holy cow. You have jumped the shark and prove you are absolutely clueless.

            Thats got my vote for the dumbest clueless post of the day! Google have no idea what the PA and DA of a site is, let alone use it as part of the ranking algorithm.

            When people are that clueless, all you have left is ridicule and mockery.

            There's two sort of SEO-related activities that you can do on Facebook: link outreach, and getting your FB page to rank in search. These don't directly help your money site, but there's some potential benefits there.

            Well, you do not understand. Unfortunately it's as simple as that. I dislike Paul's "you people" as much as the next guy, but he nailed it in this case.

            Google Search doesn't and can't use "the traffic coming from Facebook groups in Analytics" for anything. Cutts has said they don't, and it would be a factor that only matters for a bunch of sites. Google Analytics is far from ubiquitous, you know... The bigger the site, the less likely they're to use free tools such as Analytics.

            SMM is another form of marketing. SMO is optimizing your social media efforts. They're not SEO. All of these terms fall under internet marketing, and they're sort of siblings. If someone asks for Facebook SEO they're not asking help posting FB ads. I think this should be fairly obvious.

            And it's completely ludicrous to claim that Google uses a 3rd party metric that was specifically build to crudely mimic their algorithms. Even Moz doesn't try to hide this fact.

          See what you've done? You've added to the confusion. We haven't yet convinced them that nofollow links are no good for SEO and you want them to grasp the concept that the Almighty Google doesn't see, hear, feel, taste everything?

          You want them to understand that 2 things happening one after the other don't, necessarily have a cause-effect relationship?

          Paul, Paul, Paul. Let them learn to stand before they run!

    PA and DA are third-party metrics. They are Moz's way of attempting to evaluate the strength of pages. Why would Google rely on what a third party does to determine a page's worth (and thus the worth of links on those pages)? Current Page Rank is hidden from us now, so we can, if we have any confidence in Moz, use DA and PA as part of the process of trying to determine the worth of a page or a domain. We don't have access to PR values. Google of course does. Google isn't going to rely on a process out of their control as part of evaluating link worth. What if Moz went out of business or quit publishing PA/DA? That would totally throw everything out of whack for Google.

    You Need to Perform mentioned below all activities regularly....

    1. If someone has already joined your email list, they most likely would love to connect with you on Facebook too.

    2. Add a Facebook Page Badge to your website or blog. A Facebook badge is an icon you create that links fans from your website to your Facebook Page.


    3. Share your Facebook Page with friends and family

    4. Take your Facebook Page to new social heights

    5. Promote your Facebook Page on all of your print marketing materials including business cards, menus, flyers, signs, t-shirts — anywhere it can be visible.

    6.
    Promote your Facebook Page the next time you speak at a workshop, seminar or conference. Even include an image and link to your page in your slide deck.

    If Facebook is your only plan I would say run for the hills. If you are serious you will need to do some reading and I recommend "Ultimate Guide to Link building" by Eric Ward. You can read it in 2 days and you will not be asking people such a broad question. Facebook is not where you should be working if you want lasting rankings.

    FB is best for more personal interaction type marketing. Use your FB page to engage within the community of whatever industry you're in and establish yourself as an expert in your field. It's really not suitable for SEO however, as others have said.

      All the backlinks from facebook is nofollow, it doesn't help SEO. You can increase traffic for your website through facebook.

      * Write catchy content for your post.
      * Use attractive image for the post.
      * Use # tag and share your post with others.

      There's nothing wrong with those methods. But I just wish people would stop referring to techniques that are marketing as techniques that will improve rankings.

      The S and E in SEO stand for Search Engine. SEO is about improving your site's positioning in searches. Marketing techiques bring in traffic, but often have nothing to do with SERPs.

    Facebook - as a great source of traffic, yes it is! But if you'll gonna publish links on it, unfortunately as they have said above these links are "no follow" so they wouldn't have any bearing on your money site rankings (Link building perspective)..

    But you can still make a big use for Facebook, because social pages are being indexed by Google (Let's focus here first) so if you were able to properly optimize (Brand name, fb url, description, etc.) your Facebook pages then you can also make them rank on Google search, having proper CTA's you'll get traffic to your sites.

    Post related contents to your fb pages where people could benefit from, use #hashtags, increase brand mentions, make use of keywords..

    None of you work for Google. So none of you actually really know what Google does and doesn't use in their algorithm to rank sites.

    This is what makes me laugh about some people on here and other IM forums. So quick to point out how people are wrong like they work at Google and are one of their algorithm writers or something when the bitter truth is, nobody in this thread or on this forum really knows what Google uses yet you sit there so adamant like you know. Makes me laugh.

      I, and many, many other people, have ranked keywords using nothing but backlinks from PBNs. If nofollow backlinks from social media pages contributed to improved SERP rankings, then there should be many people who will have ranked keywords using nothing but many social media backlinks. I have yet to see people demonstrate that they've done this. With demonstrate being the operative word here - not just talk ("I think...," "I've heard...," "I'm sure...," "I know...").

      I know that Matt Cutts, on his blog, said that nofollow-tagged links don't transfer juice or anchor text.

      I know that when I tested to see if he spoke the truth, no increase in rankings came from rel-nofollow links; However, the links that did not have the rel=nofollow tag moved me up in the ranks.

      I also know that when I got links from facebook, I got some traffic from facebook but no increase in rankings.

      You can figure out what Google does without working for Google. You get an idea, you test it. If it works, you know something about Google. If it doesn't work, you know something about Google. (Or you know something about yourself, if the problem was the execution.)

      No, but neither do you. Did you somehow miss the fact that you're the one who's shouting "WRONG!" to other people, yet you're the one who can't back any of your claims up? There's a simply explanation for that, you know...

      There's certain techniques that demonstrably work, and Google has been somewhat forthcoming about basics of their algorithm. On the other hand, you're making a claim that goes against not only stuff that we collectively know, but also goes against basic logical thinking. The fact that something like this makes you laugh just makes you look like the village idiot.
