After this step, make sure to provide your visitor’s with complete information by filling out as much information about your business as possible. They will need to know where you are located, what your hours are, and anything else that provides value. Pay special attention to the “About Us” section and let people know who you are and what makes you stand out. Don’t forget to also include targeted keywords for your bio! It is important that the language in your about me section mirrors the language and keywords that you use on your website.

  1. Pick a relevant page name and customize your vanity URL

Pick a page name that aligns with your business, and whenever you can, match it to your brand or website name – this is important for search engine optimization. Once you decide on this, choose a custom vanity URL with those same parameters in mind. Never stick with the generic URL that is automatically generated for you when you initially sign up for Facebook. Claim your URL before someone else does!
