Facebook is the best media to promote any Business. Every business or site has their own fan pages for branding. When it comes to Branding we need a NICE URL for our fan page. Creating a custom URL is good idea.

By default Facebook Fan Page URL look like that

http://www.facebook.com/pages/RoadToBloggingcom/133933336748300

Earlier Facebook required at least 25 likes to get a custom URL. Now you no longer need 25 friends to do that. It is very east to do. It won’t take more than 2 minutes of your time. So lets do it. Here is the simple steps.

    I have done this for a couple of mine. It’s really important to think carefully about what to name FB pages for SEO reasons as much as anything else. Google indexes Facebook pages so if you’ve got keywords in the URL you might be able to rank highly for them and get traffic that way.

    And Facebook is a highly regarded site. You might even find that your FB page ranks higher than your own site for the keywords it’s targeting!

    I have 2 fan pages:

    1. https://www.facebook.com/eric.yoffie.7
    2. https://www.facebook.com/eric.yoffie

    The first one is where I have all posts. Is there a way to delete the second page, without deleting the first page? I want to do this so that I can change my fan page URL to https://www.facebook.com/eric.yoffie

      Delete your second page. And change the URL of your first page.
