Why create a facebook page for your website?

Last Update: March 14, 2014

Facebook is the second most popular website on the internet after Google. Facebook is a place people spend on average twenty minutes per visit. This is in contrast to google where people visit just so that they can go somewhere else.

There are rumors that Facebook is loosing its popularity due to competition by major rivals like twitter, Pinterest etc. There have been lots of news reports over the last six months that Facebook could lose 80% of its users by 2017. But the fact is Facebook remains the largest social media service on the internet by a long margin.

One of the best ways of tapping into this huge wealth of traffic is to create a Facebook page for your website.

Those of you who do not like Facebook will be annoyed to hear that you need to have a Facebook account in order to operate a Facebook page. If you manage pages, the only way is to create a second Facebook account and migrate all pages to that account. But be careful as facebook may frown upon that move.

If you have any doubts or queries, feel free to post your comments below.

Yes it has happened in recent times indeed. But as I mentioned Facebook still rules over the social media and is a formidable platform to catapult your earnings to six figures.

Facebook pages should also have customized usernames to reflect proper website names and not some crazy number codes.

Hello Arka. Thank you for this information. You answered a question I was going to ask about having a separate account with your fb pages

I have 1 personal profile that operates a LOT of pages.. some for my personal business, but many for client pages.. I give clients the admin manager role control to do with what they want. Be very careful about setting up a second facebook profile. According to the Facebook T&C, this is a direct violation that could get both of your accounts along with your pages banned or deleted. It doesn't always get caught, but just know that you are taking a chance with a second profile.....

That being said, I know a lot of people that operate multiple profiles as well as profiles that facebook says it will not allow.. so you never know exactly what facebook will allow and will not allow.

The best thing to do is to create a single profile for managing all your website pages. You can also do so with your existing profile.

Just be sure that you don't provide the link your personal account on your facebook.

The admin controls are under your edit option in your page. This is where you can add different user roles of your partners.

You can provide urls anywhere in posts, about etc. It should not just go into your facebook page name.

I agree. I think Facebook is still a good source of traffic. I have one website where 90% of the traffic comes from Facebook.
