Facebook “like” vs Google “PageRank” in terms of Internet Marketing

In world of internet marketing there is big question that which one will be bigger for online marketing Facebook “like” or so called traditional Google PageRank?Now a days Facebook “like” is becoming a huge part of discussion weather its a new parameter for measuring a web page value rather than the Google PageRank.

What is Facebook “Like”?The Like button lets a user share your content with friends on Facebook. When the user clicks the Like button on your site, a story appears in the user’s friends’ News Feed with a link back to your website-Says Facebook Developers.

PageRank, a technology that determined the “importance” of a webpage by looking at what other pages link to it, as well as other data. Today we use more than 200 signals, including PageRank, to order websites, and we update these algorithms on a weekly basis. For example, we offer personalized search results based on your web history and location.by Google . Where PageRank  plays authentication role for measuring a web page quality.But now a days scenario is little different, where people love to read those pages or those articles or topics where most people voted or recommended by the other reader.The common reason is most users dont know what is Google PageRank but they know the Facebook like button, where they can participate to gudge the quality of webpage or contents so their is opportunity to show their opinion in front of world and visualize others experience .I think which is great feature to analyze or judge in a more practical way…which is working like practical review.

In terms Google PageRank algorithm there is obstruction its fixed by the Google, where you cant express your view on that.Yes too some extent Google PageRank  algorithm supports on page views, time spending, comments,unique visitors such parameters, but all the criteria is fixed by the Google,important thing is most of the people are not aware about the PageRank.

SEO facts:In terms Google optimization PageRank is still is a winner,though Google is counting social networks signals.But for Bing and Yahoo you should aware about the fact they are counting Facebook “like” page links for their SERP algorithm.You can find some interesting points on that topic on webpronews.

And web page looks and content is vital keyrole to maximum “likes”.

USA people goes to social media and internet for medical information,than online pharmacy

On a survey organized by Accenture, they found a important information for the online medical industry.92% people looks for medical helps or medical information to the medical website, medical advisory website, social networking sites online communities rather than pharmaceutical sites regular drug selling website.

“Pharmaceutical companies that embrace innovations such as social networking and communications via mobile devices and integrate and align their communication strategy across multiple channels will be positioned to have a much greater influence on their patients’ choices and consequently, realize significant increases in revenue, profitability and sustained competitive advantage,” said Tom Schwenger, global managing director for Accenture’s Life Sciences Sales & Marketing practice.

“The survey results clearly show that pharmaceutical companies must adopt a better understanding of their patient behavior through sophisticated analysis in order to fully capitalize on how patients interact with social media channels and websites,” said Schwenger.

“With only 11 percent of survey respondents saying they most often use a pharmaceutical company’s web site to seek information about an illness or condition when looking online, pharmaceutical companies have a tremendous opportunity to better connect with patients through multiple digital venues in addition to their own website.”

The survey states that 69% people expect that online pharmacy should provide relevant information about there disease and medical queries.

That trend makes a sense that consumers are more comfortable in other resources rather than pharmacy websites to purchase the medicine  or consultation, the reason is pharmacy website are not being well organized in terms of customer satisfaction.

What should do Online pharmacy stores:They should provide healthy information about their medicine, they should maintain a blog where they put there update about their medicine, provide relevant  information..mention what the side effects , what are the benefits etc.Also they should provide a online support where a buyer can get instant live chat support or expertise help while they are purchasing any medicine or looking for any information.They should be more visible to social networks where a comm0n people can address them quickly and in a more reliable way.
