John HaydonDuring the TechSoup webinar on Facebook last week, one question that came up was about creating a custom url for your Facebook Page.

There are three reasons to create a custom url for your Facebook Page:

1. It’s easy for supporters to remember.

2. Creating the custom url prevents someone else from registering it. And if someone else does register your brand, it may be costly to claim it as yours.

3. Improved SEO – especially if you use keywords in the URL name. For example, facebook.com/greatburgers will result in more hits than facebook.com/bobsgrill.
