    Facebook page missing from rankings

    We're trying to get this facebook page to rank higher for a google search for "guitar storage". in fact, our facebook page doesn't even rank at all for that term despite (at least my impression that) we're doing everything right on the facebook page to make it search friendly. we've got a keyword friendly URL. we've got descriptions. we've got posts, pictures and videos that all relate to the topic. it's a public page. we've got lots of followers.

    so why doesnt it appear anywhere in a google search? i've looked at least 7 google results pages deep and was unable to find it. yet our pinterest page appears to be the 1st result on page 2 of google results.

    what am i missing? please advise. thanks in advance!

    Firstly I will say you are going to find it difficult to rank a facebook page. Generally for competitive keywords you just don't see them at the top. They are good for accompanying a website but you shouldn't rely on them alone.

    The main reason for this is facebook has some on page elements you cannot control. To get an idea run the spider simulator from xml-sitemaps.com and see some of the link restrictions.

    Also when it comes to Google and social media they are more likely to favour Google + page than a facebook as they are in competition. A while back Google tried to aquire facebook who refused. Google then went on to develop its Google Plus network.

    Facebook pages generally do not rank very well in the SERP's (unless there is no competition for a given keyword, of course), unless you really get lots of other websiets to link to your Facebook page.

    You need to take help form IT professionals. My uncle made health care website from Blue Hand Technology & Web Design and they rank it very well.
