Hi

A colleague of mine with more time on his hands than is healthy has actually come to understand facebook development to the point where he has managed to cobble together a 3 page facebook application, which works off a database, and provides a nice little graph and some boxes with numbers in. All very pretty.

If we link to our own site from the application, will it benefit us in SERPs ?

Incidentally, I'm having trouble using the phrase "link-juice", it just sounds wrong.

It depends how it works. Is it something that people would put on their own sites to show graphs of their facebook usage or friends?

If so, and it had a link back to his site, then yes it would provide that icky sounding (but tasty) link juice.

Hi Jill,

Thanks for your reply, sorry it has taken me a few days to come back. At this moment in time, we only have a link from the application which is at apps.facebook.com/name of app. I'm guessing this doesn't get crawled, as it resides "inside" fb somehow, but user pages are crawled, so if somebody publicises it in their feed (which his app has the option to allow), then the link would get crawled ?

This is my current understanding, am I right or horribly wrong as usual ? smile.gif

I think the only time you're going to see something from a facebook feed in a Google SERP would be in the "Results from people in your social circle" section.

So practically never then ! Ah well, if we get people to the site, all well and good.

Thanks !
