facebook edgerankFacebook strives to give users the best experience. To do so, they do not display every update of every friend and business that a person likes in their news feed. Facebook only displays a piece of content in someone’s News Feed when they think the user will like it. For this reason, businesses engaged in marketing on Facebook need to understand what shows up in their News Feed and why. EdgeRank is the algorithm Facebook uses to decide whether or not to show their business status updates in the news feed of their fans.

EdgeRank is Facebook’s algorithm for deciding whether your content is “feed-worthy. The system is similar Google’s system for ranking search results, dictating what content will appear at the top of each user’s news feed based on a sliding scale of relevance.

For this reason, it is important to do more than just have Google+. One way to do this is to build Author Rank.

Increasing your rank is all about identity, relationships, and content, therefore it’s all about building relationships, not links. Although not a specific Google system, Google is now performing “Author Rank.” Google Authorship and author rank is the new Search Engine Optimization trend.
