Facebook Pages help brands, businesses, and public figures build a presence to connect with the people who like them on Facebook. For administrators of Pages, managing the content and look of that presence is one of the most important aspects of building a successful Page. We’re launching a redesigned Page Manager to make managing Pages easier and quicker.
At the center of the new design is a single, left-hand navigation to access the different aspects of your Page, from applications to admins. By clicking the feature links, you can quickly switch between different features for editing your Page.Other new features include:

  • Condensed View: Admins can view and access all aspects of the Page Manager without needing to scroll down the page.
  • Basic Information and Profile Picture section: Update the “Info” tab and add a new profile picture for the Page directly within the Page Manager. You no longer need to go to a different interface.
  • Mobile: View more detailed instructions about connecting your Page to a mobile device and managing your presence via email, the mobile website, iPhone or SMS.
  • Marketing Tab: Access useful information about promoting your Page with advertising, adding a badge, and incorporating a Like Box on your website. Policies regarding promotion guidelines can also be viewed here.
  • Editing a Page Name: If an error was made in your Page name when it was created, you now have the option to edit the Page name to correct this issue. This option is only limited to Pages with less than 100 connections.

#1: Start With Quality Content

The first and most important thing you can do is to write a good, informative post that is accessible, easy to read and appeals to your target audience. In the old days of SEO copywriting, web pages were stuffed with keywords to the point that it hurt the actual content. Aside from the fact that the search engines have caught on to keyword stuffing, readers are going to quickly bounce from a page that doesn’t provide the information they were seeking.

Information of value is also much more likely to attract incoming links. When search engines see other websites linking to a web page, especially if it includes relative content, they determine that the web page holds information of value and move it up the rankings.

SEO starts once you’ve got a solid blog post.

#2: Determine Targeted Keywords

Think like your target audience. Which words will they use to find your post? Once you’ve written your post, it’s important to decide how you want readers to find you. These search terms are your keywords. With a well-written post, the primary keywords are often obvious.

However, there are a number of tools available to help with keyword research. One of the most interesting tools I’ve found is Google Wheels.

The great thing about Google Wheels is that it gives you an idea of how Google thinks. When you enter a search term, Google returns a “wheel” or web of related terms. You can then click on each of these related terms to create more wheels. Using the wheel, you can quickly find related keywords that should be included in your post or meta information.

Do you know the power you have within yourself to focus? I like to think of focus as a by-product of passion. When you are passionate about something, wild horses couldn’t keep you away from achieving your goal. You suddenly have tunnel vision and you easily ignore distractions. You develop a sense of intense focus.

The book The Davinci Method describes Leonardo Da Vinci’s innate ability to tap into his power of focus. Monteau Bondello recalls watching Leonardo Da Vinci paint the Last Supper, “When he was working, he would rise before dawn, climb the scaffolding and paint from sunrise to sunset; the brush never leaving his hand. More often than not, he would forget to eat and drink.”
