I recently visited a dive centre who wanted to get their business Facebook page to appear in when someone did a Google search. Here are tips direct from the Facebook team if you are looking to do the same:
Pages generally don’t appear in search right away. The best way to get your Page to appear in search is to focus on building your audience and posting engaging content that extends your Page’s reach.
To make your Page more engaging, they suggest:
– Posting status updates on your Page
– Uploading interesting photos
– Creating an event through your Page
– Asking people to vote or give feedback on a question you have by creating a poll
To expand your audience, try:
– Inviting friends to like your Page
– Posting in-store signage or mentioning your Page on your website
– Claiming a username at https://www.facebook.com/username
– Running ads or sponsored stories

PADI Europe, Middle East and Africa held a special Open Day on May 13th to celebrate the move to the new Pavilions office in Bristol, UK.
Guests were welcomed by PADI President & CEO Drew Richardson and Vice Presidents Mark Caney, Jean Claude Monachon and Neil Fishburne.
After enjoying canapés and sparkling wine, guests were able to visit a range of booths to learn more about the purpose and role of each department. Exhibits from Project AWARE and PADI Sportswear were also on show. In addition to meeting and greeting PADI staff, a group trip to the warehouse was organised – visitors were even invited to take the shrink wrap challenge!
Following a closing presentation by Drew Richardson and Mark Caney, guests were presented with PADI Open Day gift bags before enjoying an evening meal in the Pavilions restaurant.
Open Day visitors were incredibly impressed with the new Pavilions office, and enjoyed the opportunity to meet the PADI staff. Comments from two PADI Members are as follows:
“Thank you and your staff for a superb and most enjoyable visit to your splendid new HQ… You certainly have a first class team”
“It was great to see the new offices (so swish!) and lovely to meet up with so many old friends who work at PADI”
