How to Use the Facebook See First Option on Mobile

facebook-see-first-option-for-mobile I’ve gotten a number of emails since publishing last weeks blog on the new Facebook  feature, See First.  Thought I’d throw out a quickie on how to use the Facebook See First option on mobile, since more and more folks are looking at our content via mobile devices, as we know, and choosing content from there. In my Google Analytics, my viewers were 72% mobile last month. 72%!

Therefore, here is clarity on how to navigate to the See First option on an iphone. Android users, as of this writing, your See First mobile features are still in development.

  • On your Facebook app,  scroll to the bottom of your news feed menu, and click into more on the bottom right

  • You’ll come to this screen, with lots of options. Scroll down to settings and hit News Feed Preferences:

facebook-see-first-on-mobile

 

  • Click into it and voila! This page appears. Hit Prioritize who to see first, up top, under Mr. Crabs:

Whether we’re thrilled with it or not, the See First option is an important one for us to know about and educate our followers on. It’s here to stay. We will quickly find out who our brand ambassadors are vs. who merely liked our page because we asked them to. Making it work to our advantage is going to be even more of an uphill battle now, but one we need to take on, and in the long run, as I discussed with my team today, one which is going to force us to create quality content that talks to our followers needs, and offers solutions, if we want them to stick around and see our content at all.

So get creative, go for the pain/solution and most of all add value. It’s going to be the only way to be heard above the noise from here on in. And if you’re frustrated or need help, feel free to contact me

How to Keep Your Facebook Fans Despite the New See First Option

This is the first of a 2 part series on increasing your Facebook Page reach in these tough times

facebook-see-firstFrustrated that your Facebook page is getting about as much exposure as a Donald Trump at a Greenpeace convention? Join the club.

Yes, Facebook has done it again. New changes recently launched at Facebook, aims at making the user experience (us, when we’re just “us”) a more tailored and relevant one, while at the same time putting another obstacle in the path of Businesses Facebook Page.  We can’t blame Facebook. Just like Google, Facebook is constantly working on making the Facebook experience a good one for users, using all kinds of mystery algorythms. A good thing. Most of us are users too.

That being said, the just released update, called ‘See First’ which  allows people to customize for themselves rather than having FB do it for them, the types, or specific Facebook friends, feeds and  pages they want to appear in their news feed, makes our job of getting in front of the customer that much harder, whether it be organically or via paid ads .

-This is the 3rd installment from SEO Guru Alex Miranda, on the new Google requirements for mobile “friendliness” and how not to be left behind. If you missed the first 2, come here , and here  first. 

Getting Your Website Mobile Ready and Why It Matters

It’s official, Google has just confirmed that more Google searches take place on mobile devices than on computers in 10 counties including the U.S. and Japan. Smartphones have become personal shopping assistants for most people. If you want to go or if you want to buy, it’s all right on your fingertips. As of today, Google is rolling out a beta version of a mobile car showroom. Car dealers across the country  can sign up for this new feature which will essentially allow you to build your car right from the search engine results page and order it. They also released new shopping and hotel booking updates which will make it much easier for mobile users. This matters big time. Recent Google update made ‘mobile-friendliness’ a phrase on everyone’s lips. Or at least, upon the lips of everyone who owns a website. The update allows Google users to get relevant, high-quality search results that are optimized for their mobile devices. Let’s take a look at why it matters. [Read more...]

Eight Steps To Make Your WordPress Website Mobile Friendly

This is the 2nd of 3 guest posts  by SEO Guru Alex Miranda. If you  missed the first post on the Google mobile friendly website requirements, read this first.

Unless you have been living under a rock, by now you already know about the Google friendly mobile update. Any website, which is not mobile friendly, will drop in rankings when searching from a mobile device. The update does not affect searches done on a desktop or a tablet. However, I do expect Google to expand this update to include a drop in rankings across all devices.

If you are using WordPress, you may be in luck. Continue reading below to learn more about the mobile friendly update and WordPress.

Google has started annotating mobile friendly websites on mobile search results. The example below shows you how it looks on a mobile search result.
