Facebook Fan Pages have been added to Google’s Real Time Search. Google originally announced this back in December but has finally implemented it. They announced this via a Tweet last week.
So what does this mean? Well for one thing, your Fan Pages just got more interesting. Agents with Fan Pages can now enjoy being indexed by Google which will add a whole new level on why Fan Pages are important. A few months back I spoke of building speciality and/or community Fan Pages and now here is one more reason why.
It is important to understand that Google is only indexing Facebook Fan Page updates. Items such as comments by fans or updates on your personal pages are not included. Posts made by Fan Page Owners like links, status updates, videos and photos all will be indexed by Google.
The only search engine streaming Facebook Public Profiles are Bing as of this date. Let’s wait and see if Google makes that jump to in the future.
