Can you really get a Backlink from Facebook


SEO and Facebook? Sounds interesting.

Definitely, we can do link building on Facebook. Why only Facebook? There are various Social Media accounts which can give us quality backlinks source.

Check out to create 16 different social media backlinks to get website traffic.

Most of the Social Media backlinks are with no-follow notation.

But can we create do follow links from Facebook?

Let us first check out the popular way of creating the do follow backlink. Then we will see if it is really possible to have dofollow links from Facebook.


1. Create a Facebook fan page.

2. Go to Static HTML.

3. Click on Add Static HTML to a Page.backlinks building seo 4. A new window will open up with Add Page Tab Button. backlinks building seo 5. Before clicking on Add Page tab select the Facebook page from the drop down menu where you want to add the static html to.

7. You will be led to the static html page where you need to add your website url to index.html in the following format.

<a title=”Click on” href=”” target=”_blank” rel=”dofollow”>Title of your blog</a>

Make sure you change the with your site url.

9. Now go to your FB page and click on the ‘Welcome’ Tab on the bottom left of the page.

On clicking the tab you will see the backlink ready from the Facebook end.

No. It will not. Google will never treat this as a backlink. The App Static HTML page is created under <iframe> tag so the HTML page is in a separate frame which will not be considered as Facebook.

<iframe> tag specifies an inline frame which is used to embed another document within the current HTML document and hence does not passes any link juice to the links inside. So it will be blind to Google as the content inside will not be indexed.


If you want to check if a page has do-follow or no-follow notation then:

Go to the page> Right click> View page source

CTRL +F  Search for rel=”dofollow” or rel=nofollow’ in the search box.

You will see if the page if allowing no follow or do follow backlinks.


You should create as many backlinks from G+, Twitter, Pinterest, and list will go on. When we acquire many social links for a particular post, it helps in SEO indirectly.

You will see many times that search engine displays the social media profiles for particular search terms. So it has a positive effect on SEO unintentionally.

Before proceeding check how do social media backlinks affect search engine rankings? 

Having no blogging goals and not knowing what the next steps should be will lead your blog nowhere.

There is EVERYTHING on the internet, but you need to have a proper direction to establish your blog.

I got my Blogging Goals and a definite focus from Scrivs and his community of Billionaire Blog Club. I really do not understand how can someone be available 24*7 answering to all member queries.

No that does not mean you have to take this course to have blogging success.

Just take any courses you feel like. Or else you can also learn on your own but that will be a bit slow paced just like me on the 1st year of blogging.

A nofollow link can also directly lead to someone spending money on your company's products or services. If you consistently create awareness and engage with people, those nofollow links may earn you way more than domain authority.
