Facebook Testing a Real Local Search Site; Get Ready to Step Up Your Local SEO and Review Monitoring Activities

Posted by admin on Dec 22, 2015 10:52:34 AM

With Facebook adding starred reviews at the end of 2013 and partnerting with Factual recently to include millions of more store pages, we knew a local search portal was not far away.  Although it has been live for close to a month, Facebook has yet to promote their  new local search engine ( to the mass public. While this first beta version is available on desktops, it has yet to take the jump to mobile devices. Its features and UI are strikingly similar to other local search giants like Yelp, TripAdvisor, and Google… and has even been hyped the “Yelp Killer” by a few online articles.

Facebook Chooses Factual For Its Local Search Data

Posted by admin on Sep 25, 2015 3:26:39 PM

In recent years Facebook has transformed from a widely popular social media site to a platform integral for many businesses’ and brands’ success. According to a study done by Kendall College, 58% of consumers who plan to buy products in store visit businesses’ Facebook pages before purchasing. Clearly, people no longer only use Facebook as a means to connecting with their friends and as a virtual photo album. Facebook has evolved into an integrated local search platform where customers can seek out local businesses (and their contact info), read branded messages, and discuss their experience via stared reviews (we’ve even seen them automatically adding menu pages, and hours of operation… sounds like Yelp, right?).

Facebook Graph Search: What does that mean for SEO?

Posted by collin on Feb 10, 2013 4:43:19 PM

It’s not the sexiest name, but it could be the sexiest thing to hit search for a while. Somebody needed to shake things up, but we’re not totally convinced this is it.  Last month, Facebook launched its limited, beta version of its own social media search program, Graph Search. According to Facebook, “Graph Search helps you find people, places and things—and explore Facebook in a whole new way.” This new search option will differ on an individual level because the results are dependent on your friends and followers. Facebook will pull results based on what restaurants your friends like, what music they listen to, or who they are connected with. To search for things, users just have to type their search into the blue bar at the top of the page and as you type, suggestions appear below.

Social Media Monitoring With The New and Improved Facebook

Posted by collin on Sep 29, 2011 2:42:46 PM
Oh No! The social media giant Facebook has changed! Not to worry, this does not mean businesses have to change their entire social media strategies because Facebook did away with “Check-ins”, but did they really?
A couple of weeks ago Facebook was said to change some key features of its platform. Some of the changes made were page privacy, ads to target interests, location tags (Location tagging means that people can tag statuses, pictures, and people with their exact location and they do not have to be on a mobile device.) and recommendations on place pages. Rumors were that Facebook was also removing check-ins and places, but it seems that they haven’t done either yet.
