Huge News for Facebook / SEO!

In today's Inside Facebook, Justin Smith reported on Facebook's seismic indexing shift over the weekend for its Facebook Pages program, for businesses, brands, organizations, artists, and celebrities. Essentially, hundreds of millions of new internal links from individual profiles to the Pages they are fans of have been indexed.

Now I'm no techie, but the reporter and I believe this will have vast implications on Google search results and any other search engine who uses inbound links to drive page rankings. In other words, brands and companies that are on Facebook should make sure they have more "fans" than their competition, and those brands and companies that are not on Facebook Pages yet, well, get yourself together quickly and get on board.

Google will be watching.
