Yes, Virginia, Facebook Is SEO – With more than 600 million users, Facebook is more than just the topic of a popular Hollywood movie. It’s an alternative web, where people are “Liking” content with each other. But those Likes have an impact on the regular web, influencing both regular and social search results. Getting your content seen within Facebook helps get your content seen within search engines. This session looks at improving that Facebook visibility.
