Google’s Brain Dots and Facebook Like are two ways of driving people to your website. It’s like a domino effect; the more you get on social networking sites, the more you get on Google as well. These two giant search engines now have integrated each other’s features into a simple interface. You can now use Google’s standard information interface and integrate Facebook’s custom information interface on top.
The Brain Dots site has been launched in China and Indonesia but is set to roll out globally in a few months. This is a very clever way of targeting people looking for products and services on the Brain Dots site but may not be able to find them. You can provide a search-based solution to their problem and, in return, get more people to visit your site or buy your product. If you own a Facebook account, you are already aware of how easy it is to add more people to your network. You invite them to join your page, and that’s it. People will automatically start liking and sharing stuff on your wall, which increases your page’s visibility. You have control over what you put into your profile by the content that you choose. That’s another advantage of integrating with Facebook.
Google is now doing something similar; they allow Facebook users to link their Google profiles directly. Now, every time someone clicks on that link, it will take them straight to your site. It’s a brilliant way of getting potential customers to your site. You can also add a button so that when someone likes or shares something on Facebook, you are notified, and you can then add them to your list of friends. The possibilities are endless. The functionality is very similar between the two websites. If you want to add a photo to your page, highlight it and add a link to your website. You can then put relevant comments on your status and chat. The only difference is that you can actually set the privacy settings to private with the Facebook version, which means only friends and family will view your page. Both sites are a great way to stay in touch with your friends and promote yourself and your business. I’m not saying that either is better than the other; they work quite well together. They have different attributes which you may not find useful.
