Question: How does posting a promo video of your company on a professional association/company’s Facebook page? Does this generate link juice for you or to the FB page you posted on?
Answer: Well, remember first of all that links have two values. First, the direct value. People see you on Facebook, watch the video, get excited and hop over to your website from Facebook. People might even share your video. That’s all great marketing, and has nothing to do with Google. So that’s one reason to do this, regardlesss. Second, in terms of Google, if it is PUBLIC, if it’s on a page that Google can get to WITHOUT registering, then Facebook links, including shared videos, ARE valuable. In fact, we can be sure that Google is doing everything it can to snoop into Facebook, arguably the most important website in the world, to see who’s sharing what… So definitely getting your stuff on Facebook, and shared, won’t hurt your Google / SEO, and will probably help!
