Since the update to Timeline, you might have found that your Facebook Page no longer displays your business website address as a hyperlink in the front of your business Page “About” section under your profile pic and Cover pic. This is probably because 1. you may not have included it in your About line, or 2. you have set the category of your business as Local Business and Places.
There is no real advantage to having your business listed as “Local Business and Places”, it was supposed to help you be found easier in search, and provides a link to your shop address in Bing Maps. But having a link directly to your website, an email address and phone number right on that most important section of your page, I think is more important. Your website can certainly display a google map link and all the same info.
Because Facebook are so strict on the Cover Picture design, not allowing any contact information on the Cover pic, this is a great and permanent way to display your contact information and a hyperlinked website address. Most page visitors won’t go to your info section to find out where you are. This way it’s right up front!
Enter your website addy in the Short Description Box. Be aware you only have 160 digits.
