This helpful post comes to us from the Homefinder.com blog.

So you have read about Facebook and made a fanpage, and are ready to dig deeper. If you know some tips and tricks, it can become an invaluable marketing tool that will get you in front of a large audience. So here are a few best practices to kick your fanpage into high gear.

1) Get your page to rank high in Facebook search results
We’ve all heard about the importance of ranking high in Google, Bing and other search engines. Facebook is no different. It is important to show up in search results if someone searches for “Real Estate in Chicago” (or whichever area you cover) on Facebook.

First, you want to show up organically in the auto-complete search section. Often, when a user performs a search, Facebook recommends results instantly. To be included, make sure you name your page something crystal clear; i.e. “Real Estate in Chicago: Jane Smith” or “Chicago Real Estate Agent: Jane Smith”.

Tip: Keep the spaces between words. Facebook auto-complete relies on exact matches and that is how users usually search.

I'm trying to set up a facebook page with the name similar to what you've suggested in your article (Carmel Real Estate Agent: Zach Goldman). But Facebook won't let me do it. It says that there are too many words or their automated system won't allow it. What am I doing wrong?

Hey zach - be sure you are setting up a page or group - not a person account. try using fewer words carmel real estate - the only one I found for carmel was intero carmel real estate - That is about 25 characters -
