I run a number of Facebook pages in a couple of niche markets - not crappy humor pages - but a collection of people interested in a similar topic.
One of my pages, which was at about 60,000 fans about 10 days ago, has jumped up to 110,000 fans in under two weeks.
This is with no advertising and not by simply posting viral images and meme's that get shared thousands of times.
Facebook Insights suggests that the likes are coming due to "Page Suggestions" - so I guess FB is suggesting my page to a number of people.
I have another page with over 400,000 fans, again on a specific topic, but this page has not experienced the same growth in recent weeks.
My questions is...
What factors does FB consider when it promotes a page as a suggested page to users? And how can I get this to happen for my other pages, too?
Has this happened to anyone else?
