You may have noticed that Facebook pages have really weird URLs, something like facebook.com/profile.php?id=767842914. The problem with those URLs is that they are impossible to remember, can’t be shared easily and are not descriptive.
Facebook Vanity URLs solve this problem. A vanity URL is a custom URL which you can assign to your page and they can contain a descriptive, easy to remember name, for example your business name. For Pedleyonline we’ve selected www.facebook.com/pedleyonline
For business pages the option of assigning a Facebook Vanity URL only becomes available to you once you have 25 or more people ‘like’ your page.
Some advantages of a Facebook Vanity URL:
- Make your page easier to find
- Easier to remember and share
- Make your page more professional-looking
- Increase your Facebook page’s SEO value
