SEOing Your Social Media Accounts
All social media accounts must have:
Short description (we will provide you with this).
Example: Papa’s Pizza | Pizza and Italian Restaurant, Larchmont, NY
Long description (we will provide you with this).
Example: Papa’s Pizza offers a full menu including Wraps, Calzones, Wedges, Appetizers, Soup or Salad, Pasta, Entrees in addition to our many varieties of delicious Pizza.
(after you insert the description in to the long description you can write anything after it, just make sure the description we give you is first)
Domain Name (URL)
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:
All of this information must be the same on all of your social media accounts. It is best to copy and paste this information so everything is the same. An example of a common mistake of not being consistent is the phone number, (443) 832-3361 on one account and 443-832-3361 on another. The key to good social media SEO is consistency with each other and your website so please copy and paste as much as possible to ensure consistency across all social media accounts.
