Facebook Graph Search WOW!

Facebook recently opened up Graph Search.  Facebook is now much more searchable. It’s just like a search engine, but the results are shaped by each Facebook Graph Searchuser’s social network of friends.

The Facebook Graph Search is a search engine (watch out Google) whose results are unique to you, the results are based on the people you are connected to and your location. It’s a way to discover stores that are close to you, find restaurants liked by your friends, hotels, holidays, etc.

For local businesses this is going to be HUGE and the opportunities to connect with potential clients and customers will be fantastic!

But as Google get smarter the black hat side of marketing becomes more and more obselete.

I still see individuals and companies advertising SEO work, they say they’ll give you 10,000 backlinks within 24 hours! Well, good luck with that, because that will do nothing but harm to your website.
